We’re in the midst of the Blizzard of 2010 here at my parent’s house in Maine. Personally, I think “Blizzard of 2010” is a lame name and we ought to name winter storms with people names like they do hurricanes. According to Wikipedia, this is the fourth “Blizzard of 2010” and that’s just silly. Surely we can be more creative than that.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that we still had electricity when I woke up this morning. Since we’re not planning on leaving the house today, I thought it might be a good time to share some of my Christmas gifts.
Reviews of The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook and The Omnivore’s Dilemma to follow after I’ve read them (Am I the only one who hasn’t read Omnivore’s Dilemma? I think I might be). We also got maple syrup and Holiday Chai, ornaments shaped like a carrot and a tomato and a set of placemats, among other (non-pictured) gifts.
I also got a collapsible basket tote, which is something I’ve been eyeing for a while and am really looking forward to using.
At home, we also have some exciting gifts from Brian’s side of the family: a canner (I’m so excited to can more!!!) and Mark Bittman’s Kitchen Express: 404 inspired seasonal dishes you can make in 20 minutes or less. There’s lots of cooking in my future…
How are you keeping warm during the Blizzard of 2010 (#4)?
