We are definitely in the throes of winter now, with lots of snow
on the ground and more falling everyday. The temperatures have
been in the teens and then the sun comes out during the day.
Yesterday the sun came streaming out and the ocean had steam
rising off of it! I have seen that many times on lakes and ponds,
but never a body of salt water. Click the pictures to make large:
The mountain is glorious with a covering of pure white snow.
See the steam rising?
Uh-oh. The not so neat part about snow and icy roads...I had
just come home about 5 minutes before this and mentioned
how icy the roads were. We don't get very many accidents here,
so when something does happen the response is immediate
and numerous. The person from the car was standing there
and I counted 18 people within 5 min. that showed up to help.
Look what I got for Christmas from my husband! I
have already made noodles for chicken noodle soup
with it and after tasting fresh pasta I am afraid I will
never buy store bought again! It is super simple to use,
my younger daughter and I made the noodles in a short
time with just eggs and flour.
When I get back from Florida I am going to try
decorating a cake with fondant and the pasta maker will
be a big help in getting the fondant flat and I can also use
it to cut strips and pieces. Now all I need is a birthday to
make it for LOL
