We've got about 8 or so inches of snow on the ground here in central Illinois. Hubs had a hard time getting out of the driveway, but he managed and called someone to plow our drive. It's still colder than tits.

On a cooking jag. Made clam chowder tonight. Awesome comfort food. On that note, hubs and I were talking about our first experiences with food tonight. Most of my firsts on foods I love the most happened when I was 17 when I was working at a steak house. Oddly, I grew up with a huge garden my entire life--4 acres alone were devoted to sweet corn (which I still won't compromise with--Illini Super Sweet all the way. I'm a huge fan.), and we grew zucchini, green beans, peas (which I still hate), navy beans, potatoes, radishes, strawberries and more. However, broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower--3 of my favorite veggies, never even touched my lips until I was nearly an adult! Fish, too. I was allowed to order shrimp when we ate out and fish sticks ended up magically in the freezer during summer break--but I never had any other fish outside of that. Thus, clam chowder was not part of my life until I was 17 either...and wow. How did I ever manage before then!? Haha. I LOVE clam chowder.

I have a head cold now. Fun times. Hubs gave it to me, but at least I don't have the pukes like he did. (Knock wood.) I am, however, taking cold medicine. I'm led to understand it makes me silly. Er. Sillier than normal.
