Today was an OK day at work. So I had a chance to leave a little early (5:45) LOL ! Anyways, I had been feeling cold all week, I would just get chills, all of a sudden, I've heard of "hot flashes", but cold ones? So, I skipped church today, sorry, but I needed just a few hours to myself, I sent my husband and the girls on their way, and I just laid on the bed for 20 minutes, when I realized I was starting to doze off, I jumped out of be and started a load of my work clothes. Since I was under the ceiling fan, I felt a chill, so I decided to start on my "Caldo de Res" (beef soup) for those that don't know, it's a traditional Mexican dish. Basically it's chunks of beef, I don't remember the name of the cut of meat, but it has a bone in the middle. you simmer this for at least 3 hours on med heat till the meat is tender and falling off the bone, you then add your favorite veggies to the stock....I like fresh corn, potatoes, squash, carrots, and cabbage. Simmer till the veggies are cooked thru. All I need with a big, hot bowl of this is some lime wedges and homemade tortilla chips....yummm Can't wait to eat this tomorrow, today I just had a chance to start on the beef, I want it good and tender. I pray you all had a wonderful day, and take time for yourself.
