The I Survived Arctic Weather Soup Dish – Along with a few million other people

My last two posts were about the weather, climate change and the Polar Vortex. Well,  I am here to tell you that I survived arctic conditions without even leaving the house. Yup. No lie. I feel groggy and wonky after being swathed in layers of clothing and blankets for 24 hours. While looking like a cast member of a less than glamorous mummy movie. (you get the picture.)

Today Thursday, I roused myself and made soup. This recipe is based in find-anything-in the-freezer-soup from the fall vegetables that I prepped like beets, string beans, cauliflower, broccoli, with fresh red onion, celery, carrot and garlic plus dried peas, some millet and left over chicken. I’m calling this soup The I survived Arctic Weather Soup Recipe. Smells good for lunch time. Hmmm. It looks pea green. Tastes fine. Eat Soup and celebrate survival.

National Weather Service  report for today Thursday January 31, 2019

Minnesota Weather: Dangerous Wind Chills, Light Snow Thursday


“TWIN CITIES, MN — The historic and potentially life-threatening cold will remain in Minnesota through Thursday. The wind chill warning will last until Thursday morning.

Thursday will also bring light snow into the metro. ”

[The snow could arrive during the evening commute. Yes, people are going to work today.]

“The National Weather Service says wind chills of -60F to -50F Wednesday morning will improve “slightly” today with lighter winds, but are expected to remain at or below -40 into Thursday morning.”

And that’s the way it is…in the Upper Midwest. I know my car won’t start. That’s for another day.

Keep your spirits up wherever you may be.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen

    Glad you made it through the extreme cold! Definitely soup weather!

  2. Soup is always good during a blizzard. Our blizzard finally stopped, leaving only 2 feet of snow at my house, but it’s still windy so there are whiteouts. We’re in the single digits now, well below zero overnight – actual temperature. I think the windchill hit -35 F (a heat wave compared to yours!).
