Snowed in

Not exactly but it does make crutching more challenging. We had about six inches yesterday and expect the same today. It’s quite pretty but I’m disassociated from it since I won’t be able to play. Loki enjoyed sitting on the porch to watch it come down and Shirley sat by the fireplace or in my lap in her new sweater based upon a few design modifications from my daughter and her friend. Who knew that hairless cats like to wear sweaters?

This picture tells me Loki enjoys watching the snow but not walking in it and my windows need to be cleaned.

My latest cooking adventure was pasta. I happened to have some semolina flour, mixed it with white flour and a few eggs and voila! I don’t think I rolled it thin enough because it was pretty chewy and I wasn’t sure if I should refrigerate it or let it hang dry. I opted for drying because it made a prettier picture.

Lastly, I am enjoying my adventures in tea and have a made a variety of the flavors. The strawberry lemonade is a mild, already sweetened lemonade and so pretty!

  1. I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado and I have such fond memories of “Snow Days”. My mother had set aside one shelf in the cabinet for snow treats. Graham crackers, Hersheys chocolate, marshmallows, those funny stove top popcorn packages, maple syrup to boil up and pour on the snow – stuff like that.

    Good times!


  2. you can borrow my pasta roller and cutter any time you’d like. it rolls it evenly and i have cutters for what i call vermicelli, spaghetti and a wide noodle. then if i’m making lazagna i don’t cut it at all after it comes out of the roller. what are the chances we’d both need it on the same day? i also have a drying rack that’s available for borrowing also. i have to keep it away from Ernest-T when it’s drying as he likes to eat it. just call if you decide to try it again. p.s. I get the semolina up at the food co-op in Plattsburgh.


    • Thanks Carol. Actually, it was your delicious homemade pasta that reminded me how good it is. Tim thought my last batch of what I called fettucini was more like eating popsicle sticks. Hope you are warm and toasty today.
