SNOMG 2010


I’ll share a secret with you…I don’t typically blog in real time.  I’ve got myself a nice little backlog of posts all written and scheduled to magically appear here on BAH Monday through Friday.  That explains why some of my recipes may not be “in season”…it’s easier just to set things to publish and not worry about whether I’m talking about Christmas Dinner in February.  If anything, it breaks up the routine.  It’s unexpected.  But there are times when you just have to cut the line and talk about the obvious.  Like SNOMG.  Or Snomageddon.  Or whatever you’ve taken to calling the freak of nature that has engulfed the MidAtlantic.  It cannot be ignored.

How could it?  Government office are closed.  Schools are closed.  Stores are closed.  Mass transit has shut down.  Mail is not being delivered.  Trash is not being picked up.

We each cope in our own way.  Me, I’m doing my thing in the kitchen when I’m not outside wielding a shovel.  Let’s look at what I’ve been cooking up for your reading enjoyment:

Retro Cinnamon Cake

Nigella’s Beef Stew

Beth’s Chicken and Rice Soup

Salmon with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Apple Almond Coffee Cake


Homemade Hot Chocolate

And the rest of the week looks like this:

Penne with Mushrooms

Char Siu Pork

Frizzled Beef and Macaroni

Beef Pot Pies

Cinnamon Bread


Chocolate Cake

I’m guessing that by the time SNOMG moves out of here, I will be carrying around 5 extra pounds from all those sweets.  What about you?  How are you getting through the storm?
