ICE......AGAIN ??? (3/4/15)


...a little SNOW
and more ICE....
Seems we've had one little storm after another...
I know this seems very minor to those of you 
that are buried beneath many inches of that cold, icy STUFF...

but, out here in dry West Texas, it seems like a lot.
The streets and highways are dangerous right now...
schools are starting later.

It is supposed to stop snowing tomorrow, with a high of 37 degrees....brrrrr.



and when a girl has to stay inside for the day, she wants to
COOK.

This pkg of NO YOLKS pasta was in the pantry...
(NO CHOLESTEROL)

and  a package of extra lean hamburger in the freezer....

After thawing it, I looked up this EASY BEEF STROGANOFF
I found on the NO YOLKS web site.


Oh, my...it sure is beginning to look good.

It's a really great recipe and quick...(especially if your meat is already thawed)

The recipe called for SOUR CREAM....
and, of COURSE, I didn't have any.

So, I googled sub for sour cream and found out I could use PLAIN YOGURT....
Well, that was GREAT news because the yogurt has way less calories than sour cream. 

Hope all of you are safe...I know there's states that have declared Emergencies ...
Our prayers go up for all of you.

  10. That looks so good, BJ! We got hit in Dallas, again, last night. Of course, all of the schools are closed today. Hard to believe that Spring Break is next week. i put on a big pot of red beans and rice; and I'm staying in today! Stay warm!

  12. Looks good -- I love those 1950s-like recipes! Starting today we are to have great weather for several days; so maybe it is headed to Lubbock. Take care, Sally

  13. I sure hope so... ahahahah... not for you. ME!
    Weather doesn't want to piss me off this way - we went from 41 to 75 in a matter of couple of days. I'm telling you - it run havoc with everything. Including allergies because trees and flowers bloomed everywhere like crazy. And you come to work wearing winter clothes and then when you're leaving office you think you should've packed the bikini and head to the beach. This is no good. These huge and dramatic changes. I want the change to me smooth - is it too much to ask?!?! So, Dear Weather, spread the heat between me and BJ and everyone will be happy. I will, never mind her ahahahah she can take a dip in that amazing pool ;)
    That dish looks awesome. Send some my way, maybe weather improves and no need for fresh salads already ahahah
    Take Care. Stay warm (it's weird to say this) and Have Fun,
    Teresa

  22. Your meal looks great BJ! It started snowing here at 6AM and according to my table outside we have at least 7" so far and it should snow for another 4 hours at least... I'll be doing the Irish Jig when spring gets here! Stay warm:@)

  23. BJ, I have been griping about NOT having any winter weather but feel so bad for you (but not when you are eating that delicious looking dish) and the one's that are worse off. Who says there is no global warming. It is affecting our side of the nation and also the polar vortex that is affecting other parts, like you. That's the extent of my soapbox..Happy Thursday..Judy

  24. The weather has been really weird here. Two days ago it was snowing and now it's all gone and 50 out.

    Stay warm, my friend :)

  29. Hope your are getting sun today and melting that ice. We did not get the expected ice ... sunny but really windy and cold. I will take that over the ice any day. Glad you enjoy cooking ... your dinner looks delicious.
    Be safe.

  32. Oooh, I’ll never forget the subtle-but-deadly ice storms that used to sweep through West Texas. Glad to know you’re safe and snug!
    PS – The stroganoff smells delicious! :)

  34. It seem like it will never stop snowing here, I swear Spring will never arrive. We are to get a warm up too...I didn't k now Texas got snow? Hope it evaporates soon and you can be out enjoying beautiful weather again. But winter is a great time to cook, and I do love to cook!

  35. Be careful with the ice! That stuff messed me up but good many years ago. My ankle hasn't been the same since.
    The stroganoff looks very tasty and just right for a winter day!

  36. I can't wait for summer when we all complain about the heat.

  37. Mmmmm a nice meal for a cold day. Brrrr...on the ice on the pool.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I used to make something similar to this years ago....I haven't tried it in years That looks really good, bj.
    What DOESN'T look good is the snow and all that ice you have there. At least here we are expecting it and are prepared for it....but you....well that would be like us having a day with temps over 100. We are usually only high 70's during the warmest part of summer. xo Daina

  39. It's difficult to imagine having a pool still filled with water - around here they are ALWAYS drained usually in early September - or risk problems.

    Weird weather for sure = the entire country.

  40. Yes, crazy weather we've been having! We had about 5" yesterday and I didn't get to have my baby granddaughter because of the icy roads. Boo hoo!! Your meal looks tasty, BJ. Don't you just love how you can find anything on the Internet?

  41. I had to drive to work and there were tons of cars in the ditches! IF they would have just Slowed Down!
    Love the recipe!

  42. You have had an amazing winter BJ! I can't remember when I have seen you blog this many snowfalls since I started following you so many years ago. It's been a bad one all over, except in California. We won't discuss those California girls with their sunshine and winter gardens. *sigh* I love 'em but I admit I'm jealous!

  43. What an unusual winter for many of us! It's 41 degrees in TN, and we still have patches of snow. I hope the sun melts all of your snow and ice this weekend!
