It must be horrible to have to leave one's home and belongings and seek refuge in a shelter.
There have been a few patches of sunshine and a brief respite from the rain,
but as I type there is a gale force wind blowing outside and the cats are nervous and huddled together.
I managed to sneak in a 5K walk.
Kelp and driftwood and debris blown ashore...
Ribbons of kelp that look like skeins of wool litter the beach.
Quite pretty actually...when you get up close and really study the mix of colours and textures.
It's a beautiful sky tonight.
There has been a lot of activity in The Humble Bungalow Kitchen.
My linen apron has been my trusted companion for the past several days...
(and will be for many days to come)
Mom's rum balls are a Christmas tradition.
Easy to make and very tasty...
I've shared them before but they are worth repeating.
In a food processor grind a 312 g. box of vanilla wafers (3 cups)
Place in a large bowl.
In processor grind 1 cup pecans and add to the wafer crumbs in bowl.
Add 1 cup sifted icing sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder,
3 tablespoons Caro syrup and 1/2 cup of rum.
Mix well and roll into balls using your hands or a small scoop.
Roll in icing sugar or cocoa powder.
Place in covered containers and store in a cool spot.
These make a great Hostess gift!

Fresh sole on a bed of mashed potatoes garnished with spinach served with a butter leek sauce...
I ate half and brought the rest home.
Beets, kale and goat cheese on the side.
Zambri's serves up some pretty amazing entrees...
I will close for now...
Tatiana De Rosnay's book Sarah's Key was so enjoyable that I reserved 3 of her other books at the library.
They all came in on the same day so I have a lot of reading to do.
I am off now to read my book.
