We are in winter preparation mode around here. Step one: Get these very green Roma tomatoes picked before they freeze on the vine; wrap them in newspaper, as shown here
, so they'll ripen up.
Step two: Start pulling out tired gift bags emblazoned with random store logos and see if you can spruce them up with scrapbook supplies languishing under the bed because you last worked on your scrapbook in 2002.
Step three: Get so inspired by your own creativity that you start splattering paint on brown paper lunch bags.
Follow that with a raid on your grandma's button box.
Proceed with an episode of glitter.
At which point you realize you have perhaps gone a little too far in winter preparation mode while completely neglecting to make any actual food for dinner.
Green tomatoes, anyone?
