We have a cold front moving in. At the start of Priesthood Meeting, the bishop came in and announced they were sending us home before the storm got any worse. (To which Bishop Taylor jokingly said, “Wimp!”)
We came home and I cleared the sidewalk and driveway so others can get in and out. It was bitterly cold and windy. (16F with about a 5-7 mph wind.)
It didn’t get so bad that the missionaries had to stay in. We were able to have dinner with Sisters Ingersoll and Larson.
I made cashew chicken, but this time I used canned chicken from our home canning. The taste was there, but the texture was different. The chicken turned in to stringy pieces like pulled chicken instead of chunks.
I also made a slaw with shredded carrots, cabbage, raisins, and cranberries. I topped it with my balsamic vinegar and olive oil infused with blood orange. It was soooo good.
Dessert was simple — brownies. There are two secrets to great brownies. One, do not over stir. No more than 50 strokes, or until mixed. Two, don’t over bake. Take them out before they get too done.
The temperatures are really cold. It’s down to the teens again tonight.
