isn't she a beauty?
she's one of the things i love the most about our place in vt.
i think tonight we'll fire her up.
the temperature may drop below freezing...
she keeps the whole place cozy, and you can cook on her, too!
here's her simple, straightforward "technology".
lindsey has tamed her, often baking rolls for holiday meals.

my great aunt margretta's bean pot.
she used it to make boston baked beans when
she and my great uncle harry
owned sunrise farm back in the 1950's.
my love affair with vermont started back then when i was a toddler,
exploring the farm with cousins and aunts and uncles
and my mom and dad.
my uncle david is hoping i'll make beans in the pot,
in the home comfort.
i say, come on up uncle david!
