Icy Wonderland

While the weather outside has been frightful, we in the mid-Atlantic have been experiencing our first wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and a bit of snow from Winter Storm Dion. The icy rain has caused power outages within the area, and I spent the day trying to stay ahead of the electricity possibly going out. I prepped a substantial amount of comfort foods yesterday in case I could not use the stove by roasting and then slicing a turkey breast; heating noodle soup to go in a thermos and lastly slicing cheeses to eat with crackers. For dessert there was sweet potato pie left over from Thanksgiving.
