For the past three weeks we’ve been pounded by the weather. We’ve had school closings every week, which means cabin fever is at an all time high. This is especially hard for us to adapt to after spending the last two years in warm and sunny St. Augustine, Florida. My poor kids just stared at me in disbelief when I told them the weather was too bad for them to play outside. They’re just not used to this thing called “winter”.
I’ve been cooking up all the cold weather standards – chili…stew…soup…and I have to tell you, I’m tired of eating everything out of a bowl. I long to eat off of a paper plate, preferably outside in the shade next to a smoking hot grill with the smell of hamburgers wafting through the yard. If you’re starting to feel the same way then you’ll love what this Orange Pound Cake is going to do for your quality of life.
