While the East Coast has been getting their share of major snow storms, up here in the Catskills, the snow has been pretty light, comparatively. So we were happy to finally get a nice snow fall to blanket the landscape with a fluffy blanket of the cold stuff.
The dogs love going for walks around the property through the soft snow. They often stick their whole face under the snow to sniff the tantalizing scents underneath - mainly deer tracks!
I love all the shadows created by the trees!
But speaking of tantalizing scents, winter is also the time when we are experimenting with new recipes for the year. One of the recent dishes was a Roast Pork Loin with Pears and Cider.
It was a tasty dish with wonderfully delicate flavors. I just wish I'd had something to sop up all that luscious sauce!
