Montana don't play when it comes to winter....apparently. Yeah, I woke up to -20 air temperatures, with a negative 31 windchill. Holy crap balls!
Tonight to combat the freezing temps and pounding of snow, I made my delicious Roasted Sherry Tomato Cream Soup, annnnndddddd.....drumroll please....Caprese Paninis with grape tomatoes, basil olive oil & fresh Buffalo Mozzarella! M,m,m.
Oh and we used the rustic olive oil bread we got this week from Bountiful Baskets co-op!
