Snowed In

I don't know what to tell you, but I love winter. It's my favorite time of year.  And snow!  Well, I am crazy about the fluffy white stuff.  It's not convenient when you live in a major metro area esp. the DMV.  I loved it when I lived in  rural southern VA.  Lots of pristine fields of white.  My mom would pop corn and make hot chocolate for us.  She'd use real milk and we'd have butter for the popcorn.  It was lots of cozy evenings.  So, what do I do when it snows?  Well, I cook and bake.  I've made roast beef, baked potatoes and corn. We used some of the leftover potatoes for home fries w/onions and bacon this morning.  I've made the first batch of cookie dough.  It's a chocolate dough that will get two different fillings. I've got coconut and peanut fillings chilling in the fridge. Our next door neighbors will test them out later. 

You see, I want to have my own cookie business one day.  What better time to start working on such a thing as when you're snowed in?  So, that's what I'm gonna do.  What do you do when you're snowed in?

Wow!!! Look at the Cobwebs!

I can't believe that it's been over six months since I've been in here. Let's dust the cobwebs off everything. It's never too early for spring cleaning. To bring you up to speed, I've eaten some good food. I have experienced some not so good food. And I am still experimenting in the kitchen.
You know I have a love affair with the Evil Clown. I just can't help it. There's just something about two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese and a sesame seed bun. Ooo, just saying that makes my mouth water. Unfortunately, MJ hate that place. So, what's a girl to do? That's right! Make her own. Well, I've been enjoying those commercials for those tasty looking snack wraps. I felt inspired. MJ didn't like the 3rd bun or the spec. sauce of the signature sandwich. We had ground beef, tortillas, lettuce, vidalia onion salad dressing and the other accoutrement that accompanies my fave sandwich. They were simply delicious. MJ had his with salsa instead of the onion dressing.

Tonight, we're having chicken quesadillas. I'm into quick tasty, mostly healthy meals. If you're wondering, I'm still seeing Jenny.
