So, let's not talk about the weather.
We can talk about what we did while we were held captive inside all weekend.
We cooked. We knitted. We became addicted to the Grocery Girls podcasts. We got a year older and felt every bit of it.
|My best friend on frigid mornings.|
|The yarn is from Knitpicks|
|PB in full-swaddle-mode|
|I apologize for the poor quality - it was taken|
across the room at 3AM - If you squint, you can see
Lovey's little eyes peeking out from above her beloved
Lamb Chops Christmas toy.
Then there was sweet potato flat bread. Meh. The flavor was mild to the point of non-existence and it was so rubbery that, if you bit down hard, your dentures would bounce. There will not be a repeat performance.
I also made fried calamari for the first time - but there are no photographs because it was late yesterday (after late afternoon chores that, normally, take a half hour and took two hours because - EVERYTHING WAS FROZEN) and I was knackered. It was a gluten free recipe that wasn't bad. I order it out every chance I can (if it's gluten free) but had never made it. I missed the part about marinating the squid in milk overnight to tenderize it, so it was a tad chewy - but nothing like the rubber mats that were sweet potato flat breads. I baked brownies for the barn and managed to get a half-can each of wet cat food down my barn cats' little gullets before it froze. Jiminy Cricket.
I also made this:
|Preserved Meyer lemons|
That's a laugh, coming from him - I put his remaining sweater on, turned my back and he had pulled his front legs in - turtle-style - which rendered him unable to walk. He was lying on his side, looking balefully at me until I released him from bondage. Gads.
