Tomorrow morning, we are packing a car full of food and heading to the Berkshires for 5 days of XC-skiing (or so we hoped). So what if all the snow will be melting and it will be 45 degrees. We'll have a great time anyway. Besides, this might be a perfect opportunity to try show shoeing. I like XC-skiing so much, I could never bring myself to snow shoe instead when the ground is covered with fresh powder. This could be my chance.
What am I cooking? Well, let's see... blinchiki (Russian crepes), beef stew with apricots and prunes, butternut squash lasagna, roasted bluefish, chocolate bread pudding, and last but not least, marshmallows roasted in the fire place (it's one of my secret junk food addictions).
I don't believe we have internet access there, so you'll have to wait until I get back on Monday, Jan. 16 for a report.
Have a great week and enjoy the spring weather if you are in the North East!
