Winter is Coming

Good Wednesday everyone. On Facebook today, there was a contest to see who could correctly predict the first 1” of snow that Richmond will see. What? Snow? Already? Wasn’t I just in flips flops a couple of weeks ago?

Part of me is ready for winter. Ready to hibernate a bit. Or at least have a bowl of comfort in the form of a soup, stew or chili while in front of my fireplace. How about you?

I set aside some chores or tasks until I am forced by Mother Nature to stay indoors. This winter will be no different. I used to sew a lot years ago and would like to take that up again, maybe make a couple of pairs of chef pants. I love being crafty and used to do a lot more than I do now. But, of course, the cooking career I’ve taken up is pretty crafty too.

Another project is to finally put some old photos in albums. Yes, I know that’s old school, but they will be handed down to my children one day and while they love this current electronic age, I know they will get a kick out of seeing these pictures in albums.

But until that first snow hits, I will be spending time in the kitchen, as usual. This weekend is my FeedMore fundraising dinner here at my home, 5:00pm-9:00pm, Saturday, November 18. Tickets can still be purchased by 5:00pm Thursday, the 16th on Eventbrite. https://www.facebook.com/events/119439872080632/

The event will be an intimate gathering of some great folks. I realized after planning this event, I am “competing” with Barack Obama and the Richmond Forum. Can’t say I blame anyone for attending that!

But that is what life is, right? You roll with the punches, as is said. I will still be able to cook a great dinner and the folks attending are supporting a great cause – FeedMore.

And then it’s Thanksgiving next week, where we will all overdose on turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie. Be sure to tune in to next week’s blog, as I plan to share a great recipe for leftover turkey! And if you need help with your own Thanksgiving feast, be sure to give The Green Kitchen a call, 804-687-7099, or email us at cheftammy@greenkitchenrichmond.com. We’d love to help you!
