The word "CHEAP" was thrown around a bit this weekend. It mostly was due to this:
Yep, that's a pot of chili. Every February we have a church social that we lovingly call our "cheap, good night out" and chili cook off. This was my contribution. I just noticed a couple of pill bottles is the background of this pic. No, they were not used in the making of this dish..however, maybe I should have because then I might have won. But that's OK because it was a fun evening and winning isn't everything (sort of) and I think it was pretty tasty! I also made this:
I didn't have any so I can't comment on how it tasted, but it looked pretty! Really, can a chocolate cake with chocolate filling and chocolate frosting and chocolate chunks on top be bad? There were fun skits and talents shared at this cheap, good night out...
Jack was in this cute skit. Nice job guys! All the skits were fun! So how did the weekend continue with the "cheap" theme? Waking up Sunday morning with another snowfall happening was a cheap shot. All day today it was nice..sunny at times. However, the weather channel was sending us a warning about another snow storm. It was suppose to hit around 4 or 5. When nothing happened I figured we probably missed it...HA! Silly me. I wish I could have caught on camera the look of the mini blizzard that hit around 7pm. I tried to capture a few flakes:
I opened the door to the deck and was hit with winds and blowing snow. My son called me to the front to check out the view from there.
Jack's car was totally clean about a half hour before this shot. I'm just wondering how my drive into work tomorrow will be...only time will tell. The weather is suppose to warm up by Thursday and I'm betting Mother Nature will hand us another cheap shot in the way of flooding to get rid of all this snow we've accumulated in the last 3 months. Only a month to go until Spring. No guarantees of nice weather even then, but just saying the word "Spring" will make it seem better!
