FiftyTwo Treats

crazy weather and treat #7

Posted on: November 5, 2011

Oh my goodness this weather has been crazy!

Two weekends ago it was a beautiful fall weekend here in New York. It was Alumni weekend at my alma mater, Fairfield University, so I got to see most of my college friends which was wonderful. I only graduated a little over a year ago, but so much can change in that time. It was nice to see old friends and feel at home at Fairfield again. Then Dave and I got to enjoy the weekend on that Sunday and hiked Bear Mountain. Obviously a busy weekend, so there was no baking involved.

See how gorgeous the weather was!

But last weekend Mother Nature decided to play a Halloween trick on us and send a Nor’easter our way.  Some of my friends joked that October was going as January for Halloween. We got roughly 8-10 inches of snow. It was incredible. I have never seen snow in New York in October. Ever. And because the trees still have their leaves on them there were downed trees EVERYWHERE. All the streets by my house looked like a war zone. And of course we lost power in the midst of it all. Some towns had to “cancel” Halloween because they feared it was not safe for kids to be trick or treating with so many trees and power lines down.

What a difference a week makes.

We finally got power back Thursday morning and this is the first time I’ve had a chance to post. So here is treat #7! In the middle of the snowstorm I was making snickerdoodle cookies. In the middle of making snickerdoodle cookies, we lost power. Did I still eat them even though they were half cooked? Yes.

Now that it’s the weekend again I am hoping I’ll have time to bake something later. Hopefully we won’t lose power again, wish me luck!
