Baguettes

Sam’s favorite food is bread, and his favorite kind of bread is the baguette. These take a whole day to make, so they made for a good snowstorm project. This is actually my second batch. The first was fine but pale and I hadn’t given them enough time to rise. Sam and I are both really happy with this second batch.

Snow days

I’ve lost track of how many snow days we’ve had now. In the last 8 days, my classes have only met once in person. Sam has had slightly more school days (3), but two of those days were cut short because of the weather.

We’ve been sledding, had snowball fights, made snowmen, drunk too much hot chocolate, and done a lot of baking

Carrot playdough egg

There’s a whole series of videos online in which people unwrap a playdough covered egg to reveal a surprise toy inside. It’s been years since Sam has watched one of those videos, and I thought he’d forgotten all about them. But here he is, making his own. This one is meant to look like a carrot. Dave gets to unwrap it when he gets home from work. Yay!
