8:40 am
yesterday wasn't so bad temperature wise. made it up to 26 degrees here in des moines. low 20's off to the north. you know what? we'll be even warmer than that today. so, hey. things are looking up. wakeup temperatures. 18 -- iowa falls, good morning. you're at 19. 16 for carroll. 19 degrees for knoxville. winds out of the south will help pump in some heat from the south. notice council bluffs. 14 miles per hour. that's the wind speed right now. so winds could be a little breezy this afternoon. you'll love these temperatures this weekend. 30 today. 36 tomorrow. we stay in the mid 30's monday. dip a little bit tuesday and look at that. by the end of the week we could be back in the low 40's. >> frank, well, it is time to get cooking. chef andrew is with us this morning with a very colorful spread. what do you have for us? >> today we'll make a fresh vegetable and sautee with a ginger sauce. perfect for the new year's just to get a lot of different vegetables in your diet and try out something a little
8:41 am
we'll just start off. a little olive oil in our hot sautee pan. throw in some onions. then some red peppers. throw those in for me. >> absolutely. >> when you're maybing a sautee you just want tongue about the vegetables that you have. vegetables that take a little longer to cook, put those in at the beginning and just keep that in mind while you're making the dish. this will come together pretty quick. if you have all your vegetables cut up and ready to go we should be on the right track. >> preparation tends to be key like you don't want these sitting in the pan while you're cutting up the broccoli. >> yes. fresh broccoli. i like to have my broccoli have a little bit of bites or crunch to it. we're putting that in about midway from the sautee so we'll have nice texture at the end.
8:42 am
so snow peas. mushrooms, zuccini squash, shredded carrots. from a preparation standpoint you can buy your carrots already shredded up. saves a little time. >> that is the biggest press in all this is chopping the vegetables and preparing them. >> yes. >> otherwise it's a quick meal. >> definitely. then the sauce that we're going to use, you can, you know, buy a premade sauce if you'd like. i made one up here. it's got some fresh juice, rice vinegar, a little honey. lots of ginger. garlic, cilantro. and then typically they have peanuts or peanut butter in there but we did almond butter instead. >> simple but healthier. >> almonds have good fats in there. they've got, you know, a little healthier than peanuts. mix it up and try something different. >> preference. all in preference. >> all right. >> this is pretty quick as well. >> yes. so you can buy this precooked if you like.
8:43 am
in the sautee -- or the sauce pot like rice. just with low water, low sodium chicken stock. >> as you mentioned rice, this is a great substitute. and it has protein in it. >> yes. you know, it's gluten free. a lot of good fiber. a lot of the good amino acids in there. like you said, the protein as well which is pretty phenomenal for a grain to have that much protein. we're just going to throw that right in here. all right. typically you serve your grain under the vegetables but we'll toss it all together. a one pot type meal here. >> it does smell great. >> you've got those really nice colors in there. throw in just a little bit of the sauce. you can, you know, depending how much sauce you'd like, do a little less, a little more. just totally up to your preference. >> sort of like you can kick up the heat level a notch again for taste right? >> definitely.
8:44 am
>> get this recipe under meal solutions or follow me on twitter chef andrew and we'll have it posted right there. >> we'll also have it on what are you going to be cooking up next week? don't give it all away though. >> next week we'll go to a slow cooker type recipe. something you can have going all day when you're at work and come home and dinner is ready. perfect. >> nothing is better than when you come home and it smells delicious. >> for sure.
8:45 am
the world a president has to grapple with, sometimes you can't even imagine. that's the job. and she's prepared for it like no other. a tireless secretary of state, standing up against the abuse of women and girls. negotiating a cease-fire in gaza, leading the diplomacy that keeps us out of war. the presidency is the toughest job in the world... and she's the one leader who has what it takes to get every part of the job done.
8:46 am
>> sharing a neat photo sent in on my facebook page. it is always nice to see the sun this time of the year. it was kind of mixed in with some clouds last week but this was a neat one. out by orient, iowa. thanks for sending that in. temperatures this morning a bit milder than they have been the past couple weeks. 19 here in des moines. 19 for knoxville. 20 in marshall town. 17 in almaguer. any time they're in the double digits i think that's a good thing this time of the year wouldn't you agree? 19 in downtown des moines. a little patchy fog especially out to the west. winds are out of the south and southwest 9 miles per hour. pressure on the high side as an area of high pressure basically sits over the top of us today. so 19 degrees. 9:00 a.m. temperature. notice we're a little chilly this morning but by noon in the mid 20's. low 30's our afternoon high today.

of the year is 31 degrees. upper 20's 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. in the mid 20's. we have the clouds out there, locked in with them throughout the day today. notice some higher clouds out to the west. those will be streaming on in and eventually a chance for some precipitation by the end of the weekend into the early part of your work week. so high pressure sliding out on the back side. winds out of the south. clock wise spin. warm front lifts through the state tomorrow. that's going to mean even warmer temperatures for us. that frontal system will pass through by the end of the day sunday into monday and bring us our next best chance for some precipitation. here it is on future cast. start things out today. mainly cloudy skies. could see some peeks of sunshine. i think we'll see more sunshine tomorrow, though. then notice as we head into monday we start to watch some snow especially in the afternoon. i think it'll start to be a rain/snow mix early in the afternoon then transition to snow by the end of the day. notice this will all pull out by the end of the day on monday and by tuesday we'll be dry. not expecting much in the way
8:48 am

8:49 am
take a look behind me. we have a guy with a snow blower trying to clear the sidewalk. other people are out with their shovels just trying to stay ahead of this storm. now it's been coming down for about 19 hours. the national weather service says we can expect conditions to deteriorate throughout the morning. that means at least another foot of snow on the ground over the next 12 hours or so. we're under a blizzard warning until at least 6:00 a.m. on sunday. by the time this is all over with, we expect about 20 to 30 inches of snow. it's going to be falling at hour. that's the situation right now. we'll keep you posted. reporting from washington, sally kidd. >> a lot of snow there. thanks, sally. and there have been thousands of accidents and at least nine deaths reported along the region's roadways.
