This winter - no snow. Until February when BA-BAM we got all the snow. All the snow at once.
Did I go out in it? Hell no. I used to love winter weather, but I got used to no snow. Think of it this way - if you ease yourself into it, you CAN go swimming off the coast on Maine in June. But if you plunge in, you are going to jump right out because it's too much all at once. If you don't immediately die of a heart attack from the shock, that is.
If we'd had a little snow all season, it'd be easier to cope with the mountain of snow that is at present parked right outside my front door.
Ugh. Wah wah wah. Call the wahhhmbulance.
So rather think about that, I thought about lunch and about how it ought to have bacon in it.
I had some nice bacon that I chopped up and cooked with some onion and garlic. Then I added some black beans and slow cooked the whole thing for a few hours.
Frankly, I could have just eaten it without the beans...
But then I wouldn't have had THIS for lunch.
And it was delicious.
