here's what we woke up to this morning:
a brilliant blue sky and about 10cms of snow...15cms in some places!
here's some really yummy pizza that we made yesterday during the blizzard:
that's your standard combination with a firm homemade crust, homemade tomatoe sauce with a ton of our own dried oregano, a ton of pepperoni, green pepper and mushroom - deelish! oh ya, and a ton of mozzarella!
we also made what i call kymberz mediterranean pizza:
the sauce is garlic-infused olive oil and a ton of oregano. the crust is super thin and crisp. on top is thinly sliced tomatoes and sliced black and green olives. finished off with feta cheese, mozzarella and parsley - yummeh!
after we ate our pizza, jambaloney headed out with the atv/plow to start clearing the driveway. but then the darn thing stalled halfway down the driveway. jambaloney was then going to get a chain and attach it to our truck to haul the atv/plow back up the driveway but our dear friend d was just driving by. our friend d has a winch on his truck and offered to pull the atv down the driveway and over to his place next door - his son is an atv genius and could take a look at it and fix it for us. jambaloney came up to tell me what was going on, i threw some pizza into a container for jambaloney to give to our friend d and his wife e and they were off. they got to our next door neighbour's house and between jam, d, and his son n - they got the atv/plow off the truck and into the shed. we were expecting that our neighbour's son n would come into town in the next day or so to fix the atv but this morning at 11am we get a call from our friend - she says come and get the atv as it's fixed already!!!! jambaloney called back and apparently our friend d got up this morning and started working on it and got it all running tickedy-boo. jambaloney headed over to pick it up with a bottle of rhum as everyone here seem to be rhum drinkers! the only prob was, last night i made jambaloney a hot toddy and used an ounce of that bottle of rhum....normally we have a few bottles on hand to bring to people when they invite us over!!!
anyway, our friends didn't seem to mind that an ounce of the rhum was missing and they thanked us for both it, and the pizza last night. it gives you really good piece of mind to know that your friends will drop anything to help you. our friend d had been working in the woods for probably 10hrs yesterday, and on his way home when he stopped to help jambaloney with the atv/plow. and i just know that he got up this morning and went straight out to the shed to see if he could fix our atv/plow right away. and he did.
i hope that he and his wife e enjoy some of that rhum tonight when they both get home!
anyway - here's the maniac out plowing the driveway on our fixed atv:
he loves that thing! i guess i can understand why!
