We had ice and freezing rain all day yesterday. School was closed (Yippee!) and my husband stayed home from work because traveling was messy. Messy, but so beautiful. Can you believe yesterday I took 146 photos of ice?! No? I can’t either. You will probably see a couple of more ice posts from me! The first photo in this post I put on Flickr.
Our internet, phone and television weren’t working all day yesterday so that gave me more free time to spend outside. I really did miss visiting my favorite blogs, though. I wondered what everyone was up to! I didn’t miss the phone and the television. I could do without them, for a while.
Since it was such crummy weather I decided to make some warm comfort food for dinner. I started cooking some stew beef three hours before dinner in my dutch oven. I added onions, potatoes, parsnips, carrots, turnips and green beans. It was good. Here’s a photo. I have the hardest time taking images of food. The color is never right. I tried to adjust it in Picasa because I am hopeless at Photoshop Elements.
I also made bread in my bread machine. I love that bread machine. It fills the house with such a wonderful aroma. It takes four hours to make bread. It’s so cool when I start the bread, then go out, and come back home to that delicious smell of baking bread!
My youngest son decided we needed a yummy dessert, so he made brownies. He sprinkled on some chocolate chips and chocolate chunks. I love that boy.
Oh, no! The song Ice Ice Baby is now stuck in my head. Ack, now it’s gonna be stuck there for hours. (Did I stick it in your head?!)
Because I am really hooked on ice photos right now, I have added this post to Hooked on Houses Hooked on Fridays link party. Go on over there for some really great links to cool stuff!
