Snowbound

Been snowing for about 48 hours straight (ergo the French Toast Warning in the sidebar).

It's amazing how much you can accomplish when you can't leave the house:
  • Did three loads of laundry
  • Wrapped of all our Christmas gifts
  • Reorganized my salt collection (seriously)
  • Made a batch of no-knead bread
  • Made a batch of baguettes (still in process, technically)
  • Made a batch of brandy-soaked dried fruit
  • Simmered up a batch of corn chowder for dinner (thank heaven for a well stocked freezer)

Wow, your snow is BEAUTIFUL! Snow is the most beautiful thing in the world (IMHO)! Be careful in all of that mess.

I am tired just looking at your list. Holy cow, you are a busy bee!

It *is* beautiful and I am grateful for such a lovely winter scene. It's funny, if I spent my weekend as I normally do, I might very well have stayed home happily, but ... since we can't safely/easily leave the house Beppo and I are going *stir crazy*. :-)

You are so fabulously productive! I am envious :)

P.S. Brandy soaked fruit?! YUM.

The dried fruit recipe came from Eating Well. I didn't follow the instructions directly - used raisins in addition to prunes - just let everything soak instead of adding the tea, then the brandy.

I think this same method would be delicious with other fruits and liquors (thinking of trying dried apples and bourbon next)!
