The weather here has turned biting cold. Snow is swirling in the cities around us but so far we haven't seen any. The mornings the past two days have greeted us with frost. I can smell wood burning so I know my neighbors have their fireplaces going. It is such a wonderful smell. The colors outside my window are spectacular right now. I've had the oven going for two days straight. I made Koralee's molasses cookies, from her book, "Everything goes with Ice Cream", for a shower that I'm helping to host this weekend. I get to visit with dear friends and I'm so looking forward to that. Today I made Alicia's No Knead Bread and a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Simmering on the stove is a pot of tomato-lentil soup with spinach, corn and brown rice. My husband says its the best soup I have ever made. It is from one of my favorite cookbooks. I have been a frequent fabric shopper on Etsy lately. I was running low on Japanese novelty fabrics and had a little sewing panic attack since they are so hard to come by. Never fear when Etsy is near! I hope that you are enjoying your Friday. I get to see my daughter tonight and fill her up on good food. Have a wonderful weekend! Oh, and the turkey platter came from a local shop, isn't it darling?
