Four degrees in my kitchen in the morning. Get in, make breakfast, get out.
It's so cold right now in my kitchen that:
- my real honey, kept in the pantry, has set rock hard - I can't even scrape a portion off
- my olive oil, also in the pantry, is thick and cloudy
- if I take something from the freezer in the morning, and sit it on the bench to thaw out for dinner, chances are it won't have defrosted
- creaming butter and sugar in a cold stainless steel bowl sets the butter hard again. Last weekend, I had to rest the bowl on a hot water bottle on my lap, and sit in a sunny spot of my living room, to keep the butter soft.
