I'm not exactly sure what is meant by "comfort" food, but the middle of January brings to mind soups and casseroles. I made the latter last night--a vegetable one with quinoa and mushroom soup--my own invention. Tonight I'm making chili. The two meals will last me a week. I also made oatmeal/choc chip cookies. That should comfort me!

I made a big pan of chili sin carne y con fruta - will eat some now and freeze four meals for another day.

An acorn squash is on tonight's supper menu (along with chicken and rice soup).

You're not the only ones! It's one of the things I learnt when I worked in shops: a display must be attractive and neat but not too neat or people won't fill their shopping baskets. I love the display of leeks!

Joan, I have a similar problem.  I don't even like taking slices from an artfully decorated cake, thereby ruining it!

I think 2016 will be our "Year of the Squash."  Including pumpkins as "squash", which they are.  Today I taught Ning how to make pumpkin bread from scratch.  The "Pumpkin" was cooked/pureed pink banana squash we grew in 2015.  Later we will have more spagetti squash.  We still have lots of squashes that we harvested last fall, including a big almost-red French pumpkin.

12 Artful Displays of Vegetables

Another example of beauty out of natural things. I think I would have trouble shopping in a store with such displays, I wouldn't want to disturb the order of things. 

That says more about me than I want to know.

Oh, what wattage did you use on the hens for warmth?
Comment by k.h. ky on January 16, 2016 at 11:14pm
Daniel, without additional light my eleven hens are producing between eight and ten eggs a day. Some days as few as seven. I have attributed the consistent laying to the unusual warmth (63° a day ago) and their youth (they just started laying in Aug).
Question; occasionally I find a fertilized egg. Doesn't this mean one of the twelve is a rooster? I haven't been able to find the answer on the web because of such crappy internet service. We are serviced by satellite and the weather interferes a lot! Especially in the fall, winter and spring :- ((
