Outside the wind is howling, the snow is blowing and school is already cancelled for tomorrow. Is it strange that I am not at all upset by the snow or the blowing? I actually enjoy nights like this and can't wait to look outside when the sun comes up in the morning. The best thing about country living--the scenery is so amazing. We live off the beaten path (yep, that's a nice way to say the boonies). There will be no tracks and everything will have a beautiful layer of white and some amazing drafts for my husband, Terry to enjoy. He is a snowmobiler. He loves this weather too.
Tonight, the house is chilly because there is nothing stopping the wind from pounding against the house. It's an extra quilt kind of night.
Here's the recipe:
Grandma Hawkinson's Baked Pork Chops
