hooray for the freezer

Paul and I are both under the weather. It was incredibly comforting tonight to pop open the deep freeze and choose from a plethora of (local!) frozen soups and stews. I chose Mellow Lentil Sniffle Soup and it was soooo yummy. I also had a bag of frozen homemade biscuit dough that baked up hot and soft. A perfect dinner for a cold night.
Tuesday night at the CSA pickup I learned that you can place a damp towel or burlap over root veggies to keep them crisp. You can also trim the ends off and stand them up in ice water right before cooking (I knew this one) but the damp burlap sounds simpler. Good to know.

I hope you are both feeling better. I have been sick myself, no fun, especially on Hannukah! I love all the pictures and Mae's video--too darn cute.
