Good 32º foggy morning. Yesterday we topped at 45º.
Went to the post office and on the way into town on a pasture were about 100 Canadian Geese!
A little farther down the road in a pond were about 20-30 more!
Then when I got into town on two adjoining yards were about 50 crows!
WOW! The geese are really hanging out in this area now and the amount of crows has increased tremendously over the years too!

Here is something that works great for me. We all love chicken and there are so many things it works well in... soup, a spaghetti or any pasta dish, salads, sandwiches, etc. I buy boneless skinless chicken thighs...
Put them in the crock pot with a container of organic chicken stock.. (Costco 6 pack is less expensive than the regular store kind)
Cook them on low for 8-9 hours.
Then package them in zip lock bags. Freeze them 2, 4, 6 at a time and they will be ready for whatever you need to cook with them. They shred easy, they taste great, and after they are cooked you can add any type of seasonings you like.
Ok, speaking of crock pots... how about this SUPER EASY Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake:
20 can crushed pineapple, well drained
2 21oz cans cherry pie filling
1 box of white cake mix
1/2 cup butter, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1. Layer the pineapple, then the cherries, then the cake mix (dry, not prepared) in the slow cooker.
2. Top with butter slices and then pecans
3. Cover with lid and cook on high for 3-4 hours until cake is set.
For dinner I had some ham in the freezer I thawed out and heated, and cooked (microwaved) some Schwans green beans and had a salad with key lime pie for dessert!
Chair, wine, tv..... NYPD Blue, Blue Bloods, NCIS LA, and S.W.A.T.
