We got our first real snowfall today! It’s about a month later than last year, but last year’s storm was most definitely an anomaly (albeit a good one).

Let’s hope for the start of a good winter base. Time to switch the tele bindings and get the old body in shape for tele season! And for Joyce, who asked to see a picture of that old cookbook from Mrs. Li, here it is.

A simple and understated thing, no? But I love it.

5 nibbles at “snow!”

    I miss snow. We only get it a few times a year here. Far more than in Arizona but far less than in Canada.

  2. Deborah says:

    I was going to guess you are in Colorado – I had to go look at your about page to make sure I was right!! It’s gorgeous! Here in Utah, we’ve had some on the mountain tops, but I’m ok with enjoying fall for now!

  3. Erin Cooper says:

    I just started reading your site and managed to spend about 3 hours drooling over back posts this afternoon. I am a fellow Colorado foodie, but you are much more accomplished than I. All your tips for altitude cooking are very helpful…

  4. Joyce says:

    Thank you!! Yes – simple, understated, and full of warm wishes of a person who is far away from “home.” Beautiful calligraphy, too! : )

    Peabody – are you originally from eastern or western Canada?

    Deborah – hey neighbor! Yup, we definitely enjoy getting the snow early (and late) around here :)

    Erin – you’re practically local ;) I only ever get near Denver when I’m flying out of DIA. You must have awesome restaurants in the area. We’re just too lazy to drive that far. Yeah, getting used to the high altitude cooking adjustments was a big hurdle for me!

    Joyce – how was RI? When do you head south?
