Hello Monday! One would like to think that a new week means a new day, but in the case of Sandy it has been like Ground Hog day, since Friday. The constant rain and sustained winds of 25-30 miles an hour coupled with the gusts that seem to be getting bigger by the hour(currently at 60 MPH) has been driving me crazy. At times the noise is so loud it is like a freight train.
I have been confined to my house because of the flooding, and frankly between the storm coverage and the presidential election coverage I do not know which is worse. I will be very happy when they are both over.
As I did not leave my house for a day and a half, I managed to have an incredibly productive weekend. I made and excellent sausage and white bean soup, pumpkin struessel bread, caramel apples, a quiche, and I wrapped Christmas gifts! Not to mention doing a little work for my day job and reading a few blogs.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? Make any great recipes? Relax, batten down the hatches or go out sledding(friends in France and parts of England)?
I hope we all survive the “perfect storm” this week. For those of you in the Northeast, I hope the storm looses some of its strength. . Be safe and take care.
