Cold and Windy

Well, what did I expect for March in the mountains?  But, OMG was it cold.  The temperature was around 40 and the icy wind was whipping!  The rocking chairs on the porch looked like they had ghosts sitting and rocking in them.

I think the altitude was affecting us too.  We’re at about 5,000 feet here.  We just couldn’t get enough sleep.  So we just hung out and napped on and off all day.

The big event was Taco soup for dinner.  I’d had this years ago while visiting Melinda.  Her son, Matt was the cook.  I remember thinking what a great meal that was, and one that could actually be accomplished in the RV, because it’s just a one big pot type of meal.  But, I couldn’t remember how it went together.  So, this time I took pictures along the way:

Taco Soup step one sautee onions, pepper, diced chicken etc and add to pot with beans, stewed tomatoes and chicken broth:

Then, the special part is to take some tortilla chips and crumble them in the bottom of your bowl before adding the soup:

Ladle the soup in the bowl, then top with grated cheese, diced avocados, and sour cream if you wish.  Everything that’s in a Taco but just a different configuration.  mmm mmm good
