Snowy Breakfast


Cooking when the power is out makes for a fun time as I hunt for the long matches to light the gas cook top. In the '40's I used to have the gas stove burn my eyebrows and the hair on my arms off when I would light the oven. So, I never wanted gas and always had electric stoves until I moved up here and decided I really did need a gas cook top for when the power was down. I can always use the wood stove to cook, but the gas cook top is good to have.

Green tea, organic tortilla chips, homemade salsa, and eggs cooked in bacon grease make for a good warming breakfast. I also made french toast and bacon yesterday, but didn't take photos because I was too busy cooking and eating. This photo is of my breakfast yesterday... no photos today because my internet connection is wonky and I'm trying to post while I have a connection.

 There is still lots of snow outside, but it has melted some in the driveway and the chickens are out trying to find sunny spots to warm themselves.


I took the snow/hand photo yesterday morning. We would get more snow during the day, then it would rain and snow, etc., and we still have the same amount of snow today. I wanted to post different photos than these, but I'm having trouble finding thumbs in this user account of iPhoto. I need to do some more searching around to find the correct settings.

I'm going to try and post this now... hopefully the internet connection will be better tomorrow.

You have my sympathies. Can't believe you've got snow in May and that your power is out. Good luck on things returning to normal pretty soon, and thanks for stopping by.

Oh my, I am sure glad that I am not getting that stuff, we are getting lots of rain though! I have had an electric stove now for quite some time but I want to go back to the gas so I can get a bigger stove to cook on! You take care and stay warm.

Callie, that's a lot of snow! I wonder if we'll get some too, it is freezing cold in the 20s at night,windy and overcast. Life in the mountains is so unpredictable isn't it.--Inger
