Wandering in a Winter Wonderland

We had a snow day! At first it didn’t seem like much, but by the time I was ready to take a walk to the neighborhood tea shop for a warm-up, it was in full swing. By the time I got home, I could barely recognize (or see) my street corner!

One of the great beauties of a good blizzard is that it turns normally familiar surroundings, which are often taken for granted into, a labyrinth of white… a blustery maze of snow mounds, tiny twigs transformed into thick branches of cottony white, and streets erased like pencil lines on white paper.

I’m quite happy I didn’t have to wander far for my adventure today. Tonight I’ll save the delivery guy the challenge and make a little something at home… comfort food that reminds me of blustery childhood winters. Stracciatella: spaghetti in chicken broth with a beaten egg tempered in. Simple and warming – perfect for the blustery night.
