I Ham What I Ham

It's really cold.

My proof:

1. When I got in my car this morning, some snow fell off my boots onto the floor under my steering wheel. I drove to my fellow carpooler's house, rode to school, and returned to my car nine hours later. The snow was still there on my floor, in perfect condition.

2. When we left MTHS this afternoon, it was 0 degrees. 0.

3. My cat has developed a greater affection for my fireplace than my lap.

On a completely unrelated note, I used the leftover ham, onion, and bell pepper from Thanksgiving to make a very yummy dinner o' comfort food. With my mom's recipe and my food processor, I made a basic bread dough, rolled it flat, filled the middle of it with ham, sauteed julienned peppers and onions, and shredded cheddar cheese, cut and braided the sides of the dough to cover the filling, and baked it. With a side of boiled sweet potato slices, it hit the spot on this chilly, chilly night. I would have taken a picture of it to share with you, but I was too hungry. Instead, I'll offer you a picture of another baking item:

  1. Um...are you sure on that one?!? I am glad you, and princess kitty, have a fireplace to snuggle up to one cold winter nights. I share in your love of heated things as I am sitting closer than is recommended to my gas powered friend. According to my father, which should be enough of a disclaimer, sitting to close to such high levels of heat will result in one's kidneys being cooked. Frankly, on nights like tonight it is worth the risk!
