Power On ~ Sunday Football ~ Waffle Grilled Cheese ~ Driving to Town

Good 33ยบ snow still on the ground morning.

YIPPEEEEE.... all my family & friends electricity has been restored. 4 days is a long time! Now life will go back to what has been planned. Things you take for granted... turning on the coffee pot, watching TV, games and FB on your computer, showers, and flushing the toilet. City folks don't understand this, but in the boonies when your electricity goes off your electrical powered well pump doesn't work! Having a standby supply of water is good, or you can melt the snow on your wood stove to use to flush. Makes life interesting! Glad that tense time for all involved is over. Welcome back to the world Jeannie & Bill!!

Lunch yesterday was a grilled cheese sandwich, cooked in the waffle iron. Mmmmmmmmmmm !!! Butter both sides of the bread as you would for grilling in a pan. I use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray. (Or as the daily drivel gals call it.. "ICBINB") You have to make sure the cheese is tucked inside the edges of the bread or it tends to run out. Just take the waffle iron apart, let it sit under cold running water, and the cheese lifts right off.

Back up my road...

Last night was not creative... a fire, some football, Hallmark movies, and Progresso soup!
