Unleash Your Creativity, by Mary Sara Pipia

How about this cold weather? January 15, 2009

I know it’s January and I live in New England, and in Boston for over 20 years now, but can I just say with temps reaching almost Zero degrees, that I can’t wait for spring to arrive and golf season?  What about you?  Do you find it hard to get motivated during this weather?  Do you find that all you want to do is hibernate?  Me too.  🙂


While despite the cold, you can still be creative during this weather.  I know it’s a bit of a stretch, but you can do it.  During our last snow storm last weekend, after cleaning off my car, I made a batch of my favorite chicken chili from the Barefoot Contessa, which is easy to make and fills you up.  I use a short cut and buy a cooked chicken and use canned crushed tomatoes.  Here’s the recipe from Food Network’s web site.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/chicken-chili-recipe/index.html.  While, I left it simmering on the stove, I took down the Christmas tree at last.  It was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon and yes, I was in the warmth of my home.


The cold weather brings out my need for comfort – warmth, turtlenecks, soup, baking – what does it bring out in you?
