It's February already???

A picture is worth a thousand words

and this picture only begins to tell the tale

of the huge blizzard in the Mt Sasta area of California.

Granted-they need the snow-but the destruction

was not an added bonus.

Our friends in Weed are digging out and revving up

their chain saws to take care of trees on barn roofs

and on their acreage. Good thing they have a woodstove!

Meanwhile- here in Oregon we are enjoying

finding new places for a sip or two and

several bites of yummy food.

This photo was taken at Prost. A new German pub

in a beautifully renovated house on N Mississippii
in North Portland.

And finally....we had out of town guests from Baker City

last weekend-so I tried out a Sticky Pecan Caramel Rolls

recipe from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day

cookbook.....delicious and we ate the whole thing!

Next on my list of breads to try is the Buttermilk Bread

and the Cinnamon Raisin Bread......burp....pardon me!
