Freezing Temperatures

February in Texas often brings freezing temperatures one day then 70s the next.  We are on that roller coaster ride this weekend.  I knew it was coming, so I planned a baking day.  I've already taken two 5" apple pies out of the oven.  I'm waiting for the butter to soften a little more before I mix all the ingredients to make Toll House cookies.  I'm making chicken enchiladas for dinner with Mexican rice.  I may do some refried beans and homemade chips.  I don't have any other use for the corn tortillas this week.  I already have the chicken and dumplings made that will be our lunch.  I'll probably batch up the cookies after lunch and take some to Walter when they are cooled sufficiently.  He got oatmeal two weeks ago and has probably eaten them by now.  Mother used to make him cookies or purchase them for him.  I prefer homemade because I know what's used to make them - Irish grass fed butter, no artificial anything and no preservatives.  No, they aren't healthy but at least they are safer than store-bought stuff!

Stan has settled in to being an invalid way to smoothly.  He "lets" me do everything, bring him drinks, snacks, meals.....I have to change his bandage and put his sock on.  I had to wrap his foot so he could take a shower.  A nurse at Shick Hospital told me not to marry an asthmatic.  She said they were too needy.  I think about her at times like these. :)  Still, it's been a great 37+ years so far!
