Freezing Our Buns

The Renaissance Man and I headed to the Farm today for a visit with the folks and for a solstice bonfire and general good times.

Unfortunately for us, the weather decided to change our plans. As it turned out, though the day was sunny and bright, it was also fiercely cold and windy, with wind chills well below zero.

Suffice it to say, there was no way we were going to build a bonfire in that wind. We were able to get some work done in the barn, but we didn't spend much time walking around.

Fortunately for us, we had made sweet roll dough before heading to the farm, and I quickly turned that dough into cinnamon rolls studded with small chunks of local apples. The fragrance warmed the house, delighted the folks, and gave us another good reason to seek shelter after our afternoon adventure.

Winter weather has its appeal at times, and I do enjoy walking out in it, though not in such frigid conditions.

I'd rather keep my buns warm, thanks.
