Still cold but the days are longer and bright sunny blue skies.

Where are we today ?
-34C is -29 F
       But hey the sun is shining and the skies are blue, and the days are getting longer, spring soon be here, about 23 more days! Thats about the best we can hope for right now. 
       So this afternoon Suzie took her Dad to the hospital to visit and I went to the indoor track and walked 3 miles today 36 laps, not real exciting but I did get some walking done, not a real walkabout but at least was warm and not slippery, better than nothing.
        After researching some recipes I modified a few things and put together what I call "George's Waldorf Turkey Salad". Had some leftover Turkey breast from the other night done on our Weber Q and looking for something different. For the recipe you can click HERE and if that don't work email me or check the link to my Recipe Blog near the top of the right side bar. Made this in the morning so the flavors are be infused.
My version of Waldorf Turkey Salad
      Put in on  a bed of red leaf lettuce, sliced fresh mushrooms and some tasty rice crackers with sesame seeds, even a strawberry to add some color. Of course a few ripe olives for me.
      That was it for a sunny cold day here in Ontario, did manage to get through it no problem. Hope y'all had a great one too!

  1. We had snow then ice... now everything is crusted with ice on top. You know, George, if you were still here in Glen Rose you might think you were back in Canada.... it didn't get above 29 F today. I wish I had your great attitude, but I'll admit I've been complaining a lot. Do you ever use beets in your salads etc? I boiled some long enough to slip the skins off and get them fairly tender, but as a side dish they didn't really add much taste....

    1. I like 29 f much better then -29f but you should have nicer weather before we do.
      Beets, nope, that is one of the rare foods I do not care for at all.

  2. I'm glad the sun is shining for you but you still have snow. It needs to go away.

  4. Hopefully the sale of the house will happen soon and then you'll be your old Snowbird self again for next winter.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

  6. We live within the environments we find ourselves in....and you two are managing well. It is what it is! Just keep focused on the tasks at hand and before long, summer will find you and next winter will see you back in the desert.
