Snow Day!

So most of the East Coast is getting blanketed by a beautiful blizzard. Both of my jobs are closed, Mister is working from home (as is all of his office), and our houseguest had his job interview moved to tomorrow. This leaves us plenty of time to hang out, eat tasty food, and not bother getting dressed. Lazy days like this are always great.

Today started with the phone call telling me not to come into work. It continued with coffee and squash pie.

Squash pie happened because one of my winter storage squashes started dying, and I roasted it, pureed it and mixed it with delicious spices*. However, Mister has been teaching our houseguest how to cook, so every night has spread throughout our very small kitchen with dinner supplies. This makes me lazy and not wanting to roll out pie crust -- so squash pie of deliciousness is in a store-bought graham cracker crust. Fail, but delicious anyways. :-P

Last night's dinner was a delicious Boeuf Bourguignon made by Mister and his friend. The night before was alfredo. I am a fan of delicious food that I don't have to make!

That being said, I'm roasting a chicken for dinner tonight. We'll probably have the chicken with potatoes, carrots and applesauce. I'm going to try to recreate my amazing chicken from last month. Yay for tasty chicken!

* = Squash filling is very easy: approx. 2 c. pureed squash, 2 eggs, and either 8 oz. milk/cream and sugar, or can of sweetened condensed milk. The spices I used were: cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and garam masala.


  1. Delicious food that you don't have to make is the best, in snow or shine:)

  2. Truth! But it always seems more comforting during a snowstorm to be inside with warm food.
