More snow

We have another 2 inches headed our way. We still have ice and snow on the ground {my driveway is a treat trying to get out of} We need the snow for the winter crops, so I will not complain. Instead allow me to share some of the pictures that I neglected to post last week.

I think I will do some more baking today. We are running low on sandwich bread, and some banana bread sounds wonderful. hhhmmm....which brings up a question I have been pondering. If I included a dwarf banana tree in my greenhouse, would it be considered eating local? It's not like they grow naturally here in Kansas, so that means I would have to import it in. I really like bananas, my children love them, and my thinking was that maybe I should grow my own only paying a big food corp once instead of over and over every time we want a banana.

I also wanted to thank you all for the responses to the "I am" post and the "Where I complain about Power".

Those are great shots. We don't have any snow. It melted and then got really cold. If it has to be cold I'd take a little snow with it.

If you like cranberries, I posted one of my favorite bread recipes (especially when it is cold) at Stop the Ride yesterday. I might make some bread today too.

Funny about WalMart! What foresight you have! :)

Banana Bread?
What are the chances we might see a recipe for that?

I say, it comes from your yard/house/greenhouse, it's local. Just not native. But how many of the foods we eat regularly are native/indigenous? Not many!

That's a whole other can of worms huh?
