It was cold last night, -3 degrees cold when it happened. We were just about to leave to do our grocery shopping so that today could be full of cleaning and baking. Ole went to lock the back door because he’d been out earlier. When he did there was a large pop followed by hours of cracking, and that is how our door died.
While I do find it annoying, and I most definitely find the giant pink foam board covering the opening where there once was a giant pane of glass an eyesore, it’s actually pretty funny to think about it popping and splintering.
This week’s menu is heavy on oven usage. I’m also baking a cheesecake right now to combat the fact that it just feels cold in here to me. Plus, it really is cold outside and won’t be getting much warmer for quite a while, a grim reality that has us waiting to install a new door until we can remove the outside steps to get the frame in. I’ll keep trying to embrace the pink foam where my large window used to be, and I hope to stay warm in the kitchen while doing it.

Recipes to look for here at Food for My Family this week: So, the kugelhopf, right. Well, I may have let it overproof in my lap on my way to my mom’s house. Overproof as in proof over INTO my lap. We still baked and ate it (turned out fine), but I was so busy trying to clean it up, wash my coat and everything else, I completely forgot to finish taking pictures of the finished product. I’ll get on making another one.
