Dinner Tonight - January 13th

My daughter in law stayed home from work today as she has a bad cold.  I took supper to their house so that she could just rest and try to get better.  They moved back to our community last summer and it has been a joy to have both my sons and daughter in law living near us. 

For supper I made beef and noodles.  Sounded like a good meal for someone who is sick.  It is very cold out so I knew this would be a good choice for the rest of us also.  I made 3 loaves of honey wheat bread this afternoon along with 4 dozen peanut butter cookies.  I rounded out the meal with a simple jello salad which I knew would be a good choice for someone who is sick with a cold.

I spent the majority of the day in the kitchen baking and cooking which meant I was staying warm from the heat of the stove and oven.  Many days when it is close to zero outside I will pick that day to do a lot of baking so that we can enjoy some homemade bread or cookies along with the stove heating up the house a little more.

I am loving the picture of domestic bliss, a lovely warm Kitchen and the smell of fresh bread and cookies.
You Martha are the type of MIL every girl dreams about

My DIL is the best. I know she would do the same for me if I were sick.

The first thing I think of when someone is sick is providing a meal for them. But then again, I love to cook.
