frozen January and warm food

We weren't lacking snow or cold or wind earlier in January, but the last two weeks have shouted winter into our hat, hood and scarf covered ears. And in between the demoralizing, frost burn inducing moments, we kept an eye on the forecasted temperatures and the sudden snow squalls seen on the radar and looked for a sunny window to actually go out there and look around a bit. 
But since we are mostly hibernating creatures, much of our time as been spent indoors doing lesson work, organizing our house, making stuff and just playing around. 
Making hot and satisfying meals and treats helps me cope with such unforgiving weather so I have celebrated many foodstuffs with a photo despite my family's collective eye-rolling. And Flossy sleeps and sleeps and keeps an eye out the window and on the door always thinking the grass must be greener on the other side. Clearly it's not. But who can tell a cat anything?
