Sometimes things happen for a reason

On Friday, I whined a little about not being able to leave on our trip to visit friends in Gatineau, Quebec, just outside of Ottawa.  Click here for a refresher.  Today I realize that sometimes things happen for a reason.

This morning, Ottawa woke up to a balmy -25C, -39C with the windchill.  For those of you who go by Fahrenheit, that's -13F with a windchill of -38.2F.  Not that it was much warmer here; we enjoyed a lovely -32C or -25.6F with the wind factored in, but at least we could just hunker down and keep out of the cold.  I spent the time watching football and cooking up a storm for the week ahead.  My menu plan will be posted tomorrow. 

Tonight I'm going to try baking some bread from the Bob's Red Mill bread mix.  I've had some trouble finding a GF bread that I like enough to just eat on its own, and I'm still a little wary of trying to bake one from scratch, so this seems like a good compromise.  I'll post the results.  Tonight I'm looking forward to curling up on the couch, flipping between tennis and football, with a slice of warm homemade bread and perhaps a nice glass of wine..... Enjoy your Sunday night!
