I'm sure everyone has heard or seen Atlanta's continuing ice and snow. I bet even the researchers at the Antarctic research station have seen the footage of Atlanta drivers sliding and crashing into each other. We still have below freezing temperatures and scattered snow left in shady spots. I don't remember ever having such a long period of really cold weather here in the South. At Chez Crazy Cat Lady, we are all in hibernation mode. Nothing much going on here but staying bundled up in quilts.
This is the amount of snow that can shut down Atlanta (about 1/2" or so) with a little ice underneath.
My oak leaf hydrangea in the snow and the poor camellias that are probably a lost cause.
One way to stay warm is to do some major cooking and hang out in the kitchen. I decided to make some hearty comfort food--Shepard's pie. Lots of fresh veggies
Mashed potatoes and parsnips mixed with non-fat yogurt instead of butter and milk
Here it is ready for the oven.
Super yummy goodness and there's lots more for the rest of the week until we thaw out.
