So it’s December 13th, 2015. It’s also 39 degrees with no snow on the ground. God bless global warming! I live in Minnesota, but I have no desire for the cold or the snow. In fact, my wife and I agree that if we didn’t have kids we would have risked moving somewhere with a little more amicable climate. Sure we would have had to leave our parents and siblings behind, but if they knew what was good for them they would move too!
That said, Minnesota has been unseasonably warm for a few years. I’m not starting a political discussion, so please don’t start arguing about global warming. I am just stating my personal experience and observations. I don’t even plan on citing credible sources. Depending on which side of the fence you’re on, you wouldn’t care if I did anyway.
If Minnesota can stay this way then maybe our next (all of practically) our years will be much more comfortable. Speaking of comfort, this Savory Sunday I am going to be talking about some Caramel Apple Pie Cookies. Bam! Delicious. I personally had these when my wife made them and they were a complete hit. Not too hard to make, beautiful to look at, and a treat for the tongue.
