It's winter in Minnesota, folks.  And we're in the midst of a blizzard.  The roads are coated with a lovely coat of ice because of the rain we had last night when the temps were in the twenties.  The temperatures are now heading down, through the teens, and into the single digits and then into the below zero range by tonight.  All the while the snow will keep falling and the winds will keep blowing.  A good old fashioned blizzard.  They just announced that they have pulled the plows off the roads because of the blowing snow.

Yesterday afternoon I made Pioneer Woman's Spicy Molasses Cookies.  They are so good to dunk in a nice strong cup of coffee.  I think I'd best package them up and get them in the freezer before I sample too many of them.  And now I'm ready to get the Kitchen Aid humming again.  I have a pile of recipes I want to make today, so best I get them started.

But first I'm going to put on some soup bones for a huge pot of beef vegetable barley soup, my very favorite.  Supper will be served about six if you'd care to join us!   Nothing better than a steaming bowl of soup in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard.

We lucked out again - and it all went south of us. I'll be there for soup around 5:30 so we can visit a bit first (I wish). Sounds wonderful. I've got some Finnish flatbread started for our treat today. I LOVE warm homemade bread. Brings back childhood memories.

I've never made flatbread. I think I should check out some recipes (or you could email me your recipe) and try it. Okay, come early and we'll wine before we dine!

Sounds like any time to visit you would be a treat!! I wish I loved to cook. You all sound so cozy and warm up there.

Last night was one of the coldest nights we've had in many years. I ordered pizza for David and I. Yuck.

Actually, I was better at the cooking when he was young, I was married and we lived in Maine LOL
