So we had these great plans to go up to Tahoe with friends and all four kids would take ski lessons together. But then this storm decided to stretch into Sunday and various agencies were warning against travel up to Tahoe and so we decided to cancel. We didn’t want to risk the drive (the I-80 was closed for most of Thursday night and Friday because of whiteout conditions) and realized that it probably wouldn’t be the funnest of first ski classes if it was in freezing weather (it was forecast as -15/-4C or 5/25F).
Oh well, we’ll just have to try for another weekend.
Meanwhile, in our part of the Bay Area, it’s been a very rainy week and super windy too. The elementary school is in a neighbourhood lined with towering palm trees and boy is it dangerous to live near palm trees on a very windy day. There’s always branches and leaves clattering down!
Anyway lots of baking this week – baguettes and mixed berry muffins.
The Bodyguard. Or rather I just finished binge-watching it. I decided to give the first episode a try and it was so exciting I watched two episodes. Then the next day, another two and then the next and that was it. It was so thrilling!
Looks weird but this was a raspberry swirl pound cake in the making

We had lunch at Buca di Beppo and they’re known for their large portions and so we have a lot of leftovers!
I was thinking of cooking taco rice

Look at all these beautiful illustrations for Howl’s Moving Castle
I always bookmark posts by Bake For Happy Kids and here’s another one – a pineapple chiffon cake!
