January 2010 tracking

A beautiful day in Maine foothills.  I snowshoed out with Milos and we had a great time investigating all the snowy tracks.  The forecast is for ugly rain - hope we luck out!  I know what creature made the tracks - do you?  Love your comments.

Mixing Pretzels

Dave got a new KitchenAid Professional 600™ Series | Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer | Flour Power™ Rating - 14 Cup stand mixer for Christmas and today it was babtized. 




A couple of weeks ago, Robyn posted a recipe for Homemade Soft Pretzels on DogNamedBanjo that really sounded good.  So, we downloaded the recipe and today Dave took the plunge.


The mixer worked like a dream (sorry for the last few seconds):


and the pretzels are delicious.



So, today we made a new RecipeBoxMemory for ourselves.

Recipe Box Memories


I decided to start another blog for my 2010 challenge.  Visit Recipe Box Memories and add your thoughts and reflections prompted by "food from your past".  

2010 New Year Storm

The blizzard level winds made this one memorable. Today it is in the low 30s are everything is so heavy. Even the dogs are relaxing inside. It seems that it even adds insulation to the house - quite warm inside even without sun.

Thought on food

The kids suggested that I blog some of my family's older recipes. Should I add them here or start a special blog? I start tomorrow.
