We’ve had our fair share of Buffalo snow and wind over the years but this storm was particularly blustery and bitter! For those of you who know the area, I 90 was closed from Rochester through the PA border. Although we were sequestered in our home, we had electricity, heat, and one perfectly delightful fireplace! I had been wanting to try the dark chocolate cookie recipe from Sweetapolita so ta-da, silver lining for everything. (thank you Sweetopolita! Delish!) Here are the results.
Basically I wanted to do a study in 2x4s. Most might think Lowe’s lumber, but I mean 2 inch by 4 inch, as in cookie terms. I started with a 4″x4″ cookie and cut in half.
Then I made the earmuffs using a horseshoe and a ruffled circle cookie cutter.
This is my interpretation of snowmen during the blizzard…
Added a little retro snow (LOVE retro!)…
And then the thermometer.
Here’s a through.the.window glimpse of what Buffalo looked like mid-polar vortex… Appreciating your homestead about now?
