OT Hi to everyone, I have just regained my light and heat in my home again after being off for almost a 24 hour period with my fridge not running so I had to put some things like my food for Christopher in the freezer when I left for town this morning to make sure it did not spoil before I got home again. It is so nice to come home to a nice warm kitchen and living room that are quite welcoming when you have come home from a long bus ride. We are now having a bout of rain happening with no sun for a short while so I hope to get back in the sun again soon. The sun is actually why we had a bad storm here in the area that caused a windstorm and blew the trees down over the power lines and knocked out the power until just this afternoon when they turned it back on again for us. I am so thankful to have heat again in my trailer. It gets pretty cold when there is no heat available. We had a very hot spell for a few days and this is what happens when the weather gets too warm and causes a storm to wreak havoc. Hi to Sue in case you missed my update on your question about what to do with ginger in recipes. Try my Pineapple Lemon Meringue pie with ginger that is very good for dessert. My trip to the Dentist was a little bit cheaper this time and they were very good with me while they did the work. My dentist is always concerned about my eating habits and gives me the best care possible.

Glad to know your heat & light are back on! I hope you didn't lose any food. Good to know your dentist does good work and that you have confidence in your dentist.

Good head on your shoulders Cheerios, remembering to use the freezer and wrapping it with blankets or sleeping bags to keep the "cold" inside... Remember 30-odd years ago and taking DW to the "old cabin" for the first time, arriving in a torrential rainstorm that washed the roads out behind us and knocked the power out for four days, and having to do similar, use the well or the coldwater creek to keep things sort of "chilled" (IIRC, it worked just great for the gin and beer!) and having to BBQ and "smoke" a lot of the meat until we got enough truckloads of rock and screenings to repair the roads to get into town for ice (hard pressed to buy another two weeks worth of groceries!) It can be done, but its a lot of extra work...digging a hole in the ground to sort of bury things to keep them reasonable "fresh" is another option...certainly no fun, but our parents and grandparents did it before us, and they all lived into their 90's (maybe it was the exercise of doing such, or chopping wood, hauling water, rowing the boat and such) Again, good for you on figuring it out in the moment...

Cheerios, I hope you didn't lose any food and that Christopher got to eat! We have also had some strange weather here too. Keep the good dentist! With all the sweets, cookies and cakes your always fixing! I will check out your pie. I'm on a pineapple kick this week. Take care.

While I was at the Dentist yesterday he was kidding me about the cookies that I made and trying to eat them when they have been in the freezer. They are actually not that bad even out of the freezer. I am trying to come up with some different ideas for cookies again using some different grains.
