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.
