It snowed yesterday in Saint-Aignan, as weather forecasters had predicted. We skeptics didn't believe them. And the snow even stuck to the ground, or at least the grass and hedges and trees. The ground itself is still too warm from all the mild weather we've been having. This was a very early snowfall for the region.
It was amazing to see the sun this morning. Shining in the living room windows, it illuminated the walls and furniture in ways we hadn't seen in what feels like months. It's cold outside — below freezing. But if the sun stays out, all the snow will be gone by this afternoon, I bet.
Our Thanksgiving dinner was a success but we don't have any photos to show. I've said it before: when you are hosting a group of people for a big meal, there just isn't time to take photos as well. The steamed lamb I made was good — everybody seemed to enjoy it. It cooked for at least three hours, and then stayed warm over very low heat in the steamer pot for another two or three hours.
Sorry I don't have pictures. I'm glad, however, that we do have leftovers for today's lunch. Here's a link to a recipe — Paula Wolfert's.
