brrr is right. Temps are gonna be one of the coldest night's we've had to far and the wind is ferocious!

Mexican for a chicken burrito, but wished I had gotten my usual tamale.

So my car compensated by driving me to Brusters for a cup of key lime pie ice cream.

Just put one of our favorite recipes in the oven. Black Beans and Salsa Chicken. Someone posted the recipe here at the Kitchen Table some years ago. I add some mexicorn to it. So easy, so good! Thank you to whomever posted it. Will have a salad and corn chips to go with. Got a mini loaf of cranberry bread from the freezer for a treat later.

I used to make black bean and salsa chicken. Made it again few years ago and everyone loved it. Served it with Spanish rice as a side.

Not really sure, guess someone in this house better get started? LOL We had a late lunch, so I'm not starving. We have leftover chicken, so I should be good and use it up.

Gazania, I'd be interested in that Black Bean Salsa chicken recipe. Sounds good!

It's 29 degrees here in my part of Ohio right now. Supposed to be in the teens the next two nights. 28 would be VERY cold for FL.

I had split pea soup, a toasted cheese and ham sandwich. Very good for a cold evening.

I was suppose to go out for dinner with some lady friends and we were going to a one night showing in town of Beasts from the Southern Wild but weather is predicted to be nasty tonight and we thought better of it. Nothing planned here so I guess I'll have meatloaf again....poor me. LOL (I love meatloaf and I rarely make it so it's a treat here)

I made a big pot of pea soup, too. Lots of chopped carrots, celery, and onions added to the pot. So yummy!

Here ya go teraserva.

Black bean salsa chicken
4 skinless/boneless chicken breast halves
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
1 jar (about 2 cups) your favorite salsa
1 to 2 cups shredded mexican or cheddar cheese
Spread beans in bottom of baking dish (an 8 inch square works well) Arrange chicken on top, then spread salsa evenly over it. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and spread cheese over it. Return to oven for about 5 minutes to melt.
I add about 2 cups of mexicorn to the bean layer to make it a heartier meal for dh who is diabetic. Rice as Glenda said she served with it would be good, but rice sends hubby's blood sugar through the roof. We always enjoy a few of those baked 'Scoops' and a dollop of sour cream with it.

we were out and about so we went out to a Mexican restaurant, it was only so so, not one we will visit again.
But
on the way home we had to stop at Kroger and all the Valentines stuff was marked way down, I picked up 2 dozen beautiful roses for $2 a dozen. nice score. I got one a tangerine orange and the other a light peachy orange they look great together.
