I had the good sense to agree to work today without checking the weather reports. We've got a lovely inversion going on which meant that by the time I got to work I was gasping for air and all I could taste was dust and exhaust in the back of my throat. It eased up inside but I have to look forward to the trip home.  <_< I always forget about this part of winter.

 

I have no idea yet what is for dinner. Last night I made a lovely pork roast, but there was only enough leftovers for me to have a small lunch. I may just try for an easy night and go for chili cheese dogs and fries. If I get ambitious I'll do breakfast, with hash browns, sausage and omelets. Whatever turns out to be, it will involve hot cocoa in my new mug. It took forever because of the ice storm, but my package finally showed up yesterday with my new Rainbow Dash mug. Now I can enjoy my cocoa 20% cooler. 

Not fun :(

 

I'm planning on making a noodle stirfry. I tried the rice noodles this past weekend and.... they were very very good. It will probably be a veggie version, mushrooms, snow peas, broccoli, carrots and whatever else i can toss in.

Bacon goes with everything. Bacon is essential to happiness in life.

If you like bacon, you're my sister and I love you.

 

Friday was hub's Bday. I ask " what would you like, babes?" He knows he can have whatever he wants. He is spoiled and he deserves to be.

He wanted filet mignon with sauteed portabellas, smashed garlic potatoes and broccoli.  

er, That's it?

easy peasy.

He suggested we have gelato instead of me making a flourless chocolate cake with ganache so we did not eat it for days. He's very wise. 

We do not need to become the "Wide-enders"

 

Saturday we continued the festivities with lobstahs, corn on the cob... champagne and other frivolities.  :D

 

Today is an Atlanta Brisket. Been cooking for hours and the house smells like yumsters.

We had lemon pepper chicken breasts, baked potatoes in the microwave (because I forgot to put wedges in the oven in time, oops) and brown sugar baby carrots. All finished off with the usual late nightcap of cocoa. My husband found a divine mix for me that is caramel mocha that I'm just totally in love with. It's nice on the nights I don't feel like making it from actual cocoa powder.

When the snow is super bad my husband doesn't drive in it because his car is not exactly the world's best for a long winter commute in bad weather. So, I'll be picking him up tonight which puts a real damper on the whole cooking thing. I'm probably going to totally cheat at dinner and pick up a box of mac and cheese at the store and throw burgers on the indoor grill. I'm sure I have some veggies in the freezer to steam in the microwave and that will be a quick and easy dinner without any significant effort after we get home from our trek on the treacherous roads tonight. (I know it's a horrible dinner but I just don't want to put effort into anything after a long trek on roads with a bunch of morons who don't understand the meaning of driving appropriately for the conditions.)

 

Oh... and there will be hot chocolate with sugar cookie marshmallows. Yes, those are a thing. B)
