Well, here we are at the end of October and facing yet another storm around these parts. No school for me today, and likely tomorrow, which feels strange, as did this morning's very, very red sky. Lots of peeking out of windows, some Downton Abbey, some sewing and loads of watching the last of the leaves come down in the winds before the truly big gusts come. We're old pros at all of this now... the generator is at the ready, we will have water (warm water at that!) and we have the knowledge that we will be just fine in the end. In the meantime, it is comfort food and making sure all is right in our little world. We made this cake with this frosting and tried to mimic Alicia's beautiful cake decorating, because even if the lights go out, there will be cake... comfort indeed! I hope you are having a very lovley Monday, wherever you are, send good thoughts North East if you can. Happy Monday all!
