Here we go again.
The weather radio is blasting out a winter storm warning.
They're using the word "catastrophic" on TV.
There's ICE a-comin'!
What's a girl to do?
Bake some bread of course.
Oooo - weeee, these are good!
The onions, poppy seeds, pepper, sweet little bun shape. Liked it all.
I'm definitely more confident tossing a cup full of ice and water in the oven these days. Thank you, Tuesdays With Dorie, for making me brave!
This recipe can be found in the Baking With Julia cookbook, and the other TWD bakers are here.
And then there's the Winter Olympics in Sochi. It's so much fun to have a break from the ordinary and watch all these amazing young athletes. Doesn't matter what the sport is. They're all interesting. Have you seen those free-style skiers and snowboarders? And what about those cross-country skiers that stop and shoot a gun? (I had a bad cross-country experience once. Fell over. Stuck. Totally helpless. In very deep snow. In Norway. 'Nuf said. OK, it's funny NOW.)
Speed-skating is more exciting than you'd think, especially in person. Seriously, when they fall it's exciting, and heart-breaking. We saw speed-skating at the Lillehammer Olympics. Here's a picture outside the venue, just so you know I'm not fibbing.
|Has it really been 20 years?!?|
Or not. You might have heard that we had an Olympic event here in Atlanta. 1996. Seems like yesterday. I made a little quilt to put our pins on. Thought the bialys might like to see it.
|As close as I could get to Olympic rings!|
Here's a shoe, in honor of all those power company employees working in the cold. Thanks for all you do!
