Rain, Rain Go Away Come Again in Around May
Last evening another Nor'easter was heading our way. This would make it the third in as many weeks.
Luckily, I guess, each has been a 'rain event' and very windy. The temperature is about 5 degrees Celsius.
Just got back from 'town'......needed to pick up a few things for the next couple of days. We will be having the 'whole' family together at Dad's on the 24th.....30 plus people. We each bring something to eat and this year I am baking two (2) cakes.....a chocolate cake and a carrot cake.
I got the carrot cake recipe from David Lebovitz's blog. I can't go on enough about his blog, so I won't. Check it out though if you get a chance.
The chocolate cake recipe I got off the internet. It had rave reviews from a ton of people so I will try it out. I was looking for some really good dark chocolate truffles earlier but will have to get them in the city.....nothing suitable out our way.
While I was out this A.M. it was getting closer to lunch time. So I decided to get 'take-out' at this new Thai place. We have been there a couple of times and REALLY like it. It's not that far from here.......10 kms (meaning not in the city).
So I surprised Ron, and Sophie, with Thai Cashew Chicken, fresh Spring Rolls (uncooked) and Jasmine Rice. It was great.
Here's hoping you are all having a great week and are looking forward to a 'relaxing'(?) holiday.
Oh yes! Happy Winter Solstice everyone! Just think....each day will have more 'daylight' time from now on...can't beat that!
