Baked oatmeal is really, really good. This batch was made with almonds, cinnamon and cranberries. It smelled like the holidays. Modified from this recipe.
The sauerkraut is ready! The airlocks (Paul cobbled them together) and glass weights (locals can get these weights from EggPlant) worked really well! We were able to ferment these in the basement, which isn't possible with the open air crocks. No scum to skim with this method!
This year we made one batch with caraway seeds and one with juniper berries. I think we might finally have sauerkraut making down! We got the right blend of salty, tangy and crunchy.

The metrodome which will soon meet its demise.
The first significant snowfall came down in such large clumps it was almost like snowBALLS were falling from the sky.
