Hearty fare for a cold winter night

(Photo from Taste of Home)
It's sooooo cold up here in northern New England. This morning around ten it was still 11 below zero, with a wind chill of minus 33! Right now I think it's around zero, but still well below zero with the wind chill factored in. For supper, we are having Rosemary Chicken with White Beans -- a warm, hearty, healthy meal. You can find the recipe here: Rosemary Chicken with White Beans. I usually add more carrots, especially, and sometimes a bit more celery. And I don't bother to brown the chicken. It always tastes wonderful anyway!

I'm also baking bread this afternoon -- 2 more loaves of Miracle Bread . This time, I experimented a bit by using 2 cups of white whole wheat flour as part of the 6 cups of flour it calls for.

Can't forget to keep the woodstove stoked up... it's predicted to be another chilly one tonight.


  1. Your dinner looks delicious! Wow, it sure is cold there!! We are suppose to have almost 50 degrees tomorrow, which is a change for us, because right now it's 14 degrees!

  2. I would shrivel up & die in weather that cold! In retrospect, I'm not sure how I survived my Northland days (it must have been the Lord!). It's been chilly here too, but not that bad. I'll check out that recipe - it sounds very good! Stay inside & stay toasty!

  3. Hi ladies!

    It's not so cold here today -- 18º as I write this in the late afternoon. But it is supposed to get quite cold tonight -- down in the single numbers. And then Wednesday night we have another storm headed our way...

    Wow, Darlene, that is quite the extreme in temperatures! Hope you did have a 50º day. It was sunny here earlier so it looked warm (and even felt warm, compared to yesterday)!

    Mary Ann -- hope you like the recipe. It's a different way to do chicken in the crockpot.

    Thanks for stopping by!
