I think I should change the focus of this blog to food and weather. What do you think?
We thought we got a lot of snow earlier this week? Ha! Last night we got a few inches of beautiful powder. Turns out it was actually a little ice on top of powder. Terrible to drive in but great for sledding.
[Side note: this was what winter looked like the in Reno, where I started college. Coming from the desert, I was not at all prepared for snow. The windshield fluid (water) in my car froze and my keyholes froze more than once. I was actually 1 hour late to a physics final because I couldn't get my car door open! But by the time I left Reno, I could put chains on with my eyes shut.]
For our dinner, I made a pot of tom yum soup with mushrooms. With a bowl of steamed jasmine rice, it made a filling, warming meal. And it took all of 30 minutes!
