beautiful day and an upcoming theme week: food

Phillip and I walked downtown today after work, along the waterfront, and did some sky watching. I've noticed that over the past week or so, the quality of light has changed. It's warmer - less winter-blue and more yellow-warm. I like that. A lot. And each day, the light lasts a wee bit longer.

I post a lot of recipes here, mostly because I love to eat. I know that some of you have pretty amazing recipe ideas up your sleeves. Monday of Comfort Week was one of my favourite days - my soup list is as long as my arm, now. What do you guys think about having a food week? Are you in? I'm thinking breakfast, lunch, supper, vegetable, and casserole. (EDITED: I forgot DESSERT! Forget casseroles, we're doing desserts!) I'll give you a couple of weeks to thin out your options - you can only choose one for each day, and I want it to be a doozy! Your very best go-to recipe in each category. So keep that in the back of your mind - I'm thinking that we'll tackle it in a couple of weeks. There has to be something fun in between winter and spring! (Oh, and by the way - I have Spring Renewal week all laid out. Now we just have to wait for Spring.)

Ooooh - one more thing - cross your fingers for me! We have a snowfall warning for tomorrow, so I might get my first snow day of the year! If that happens, you'll definitely hear from me. Happy Monday!

I'll cross my fingers for you for snow day, but I'll prob skip Food Week (in participation, I mean; I really want to read everyone else's recipes though!). I rarely cook, and generally only make desserts. :}

Oh, since you mentioned soup, try this recipe if you like corn chowder: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Easy-Vegetarian-Corn-Chowder/Detail.aspx

So yummy! I add potato, leave out the nutmeg and use chicken broth instead of vegetable since that's usually what I have on hand.
