I still can't believe I live here.
I almost did the splits today walking from my house to the bus stop (the snow was powdery but slippery at the same time!) Of course I left the house at 7:30am to get to work for my meeting at 9:30a because I just assumed the buses would be out of whack. And really it did take me about 1.25 hrs to get to work. The buses were soooo full, we couldn't pick people up at all the stops.
While I'm actually blogging, I want to say that I love the cookbook ervy got me for christmas.
It has a lot of neat anecdotes about the time period and rations. Most of the recipes call for very few ingredients and are low in sugar and butter (since those were rationed heavily). I recently made Apple Butter Pudding with the Apple Butter I made and canned during the fall. It was amazing! It wasn't overly sweet and had a subtle flavor of apples and spices. I can't wait to bake more from this!
