Winter Basics

There is something basic or primal about sitting in a warm kitchen, watching sleet and snow outside while you kneed yeast dough for bread. You feel connected to the countless women over the years who have done the same thing.

Hopefully not too many people are struggling with a cold kitchen or no kitchen. Listening to the wind I couldn't help but think about settlers on these plains trying to deal with wind, cold and sod houses if they had a house. Brrr.

Everyone enjoy your holiday and keep a house full of the scents of christmas as you bake bread, make a dessert with cinnamon. Remember those who came before.
