What a cold day it turned out be! The wind blew, and cut right through you. I believe, if the wind had not been blowing, it would not have felt as cold as it did.
Something I like to use is a cream called Udderly Smooth. It was developed for dairy cows, but works great for dry chapped skin. The best part is, it does not leave a greasy feel on your hands that can stain fabrics. I keep a tube of it in my handbag and have a tub of it in my sewing area. You can find it on-line or ask your local pharmacist for it.
Today was my Friday at work. I'm looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow.
In a large dutch oven, brown meat with salt and pepper to taste. When the meat is done, drain off any fat. Add the minestrone soup, rote'l, and pinto beans. Bring to a boil and cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with cornbread or crackers.
