We woke late on Sunday to cold, rainy weather and so we stayed home. Brian read the paper and I headed into the kitchen to make some comfort foods. I roasted beets, pickled them and served them with herbed goat cheese and candied walnuts. It's one of our favorite salads. I took note of my large stock of canned pumpkin puree and baked a pumpkin crumb cake. I made my first batch of heavenly tasting smoked gouda mac and cheese and I will share that recipe with you soon.
And so we ended the weekend by watching more news and still trying to make sense of what happened. As President Obama said when he was speaking at the vigil in CT, we lost 20 beautiful children and 6 wonderful adults. And our thoughts are with their families. May they find some comfort and peace, somehow.
