In the Kitchen.
Is everyone else having the wacky weather too? Yesterday was in the 40's, and everything melted. This morning was 42º and cloudy. By this afternoon it had dropped to 20º and we had sleet and then snow. Tonight it is already down to 1º, with wind chills way below zero, snow, and with 40+mph wind gusts. By tomorrow morning the temperature will have dropped about 50 degrees within 24 hours (not to mention wind chills). Wow!
So, more days at home - it seems this is what we do every January. Today we played in the kitchen to warm us up, have some fun, and get messy. We made a delicious soup and baked a yummy sweet treat - Pineapple Coconut Bars from the Tassajara Cookbook (yum!).
The boys won't even let the bars touch their lips (coconut! egads!), but they had fun helping. My husband doesn't mind having the whole pan to himself though!
