How about this hurricane? Anyone on the eastern side of the country has been hearing about Sandy for the past week and most of us are hunkering down to weather the storm today. In Boston, schools are closed, office building are closed, and people stayed off the roads.
I actually got up and started driving to work since our office isn’t closed today. The roads were eerily empty. About half way to work, I decided it wasn’t worth risking a commute home over the Tobin with hurricane-force gusts and turned back home. I am working from home most of the day and so far, haven’t had any issues (we’ll see what happens as the day progresses). I hope everyone out there is staying dry and safe.
While sitting at home working I always tend to snack. It must just be because I’m home and there are always baked goods or other treats in the house. When I’m at my desk, I don’t snack that often, but at home, forget it. This morning, I have been snacking on these Honey Mustard Pretzels.
It wasn’t my plan. I had hoped to keep them around until the weekend, but they’re just so addictive. They come together in a snap and disappear just as quickly. These are perfect for sitting around watching football, handing out Halloween candy, or working from home in my case.
After a couple days, mine started to lose a bit of their crunch, so I just popped them back in the oven for another 15 minutes and they crisped right up again.
