When I left for work this morning it was ZERO, DARK, and Seven THIRTY. (Speaking of that movie, I saw it over the weekend and highly recommend the last half.)
We have a saying at our house when it's this cold: It's a good day to ship a box of meat.
Bob is at the UPS store right now sending a box of frozen lamb chops and ground lamb to our son in South Carolina. With a little dry ice the meat will still be rock hard when it arrives.
A few years ago, when we didn't know what we were doing, we shipped a box of meat to Nowlan's apartment during the summer. It went to the wrong UPS warehouse and they were confused on the address, but failed to call us. When the meat finally arrived it was very bad indeed.
The photo below shows our kids and friends during Christmas break. I cooked a leg of lamb for their "gaming" night.
