I Love blizzards. When I went out shopping this afternoon the snow was coming down so hard that the flakes were more like micro-snowballs and some were even flower and star shapes. I was so excited I stopped a stranger on Broadway and asked him to photograph my glove and email the photo to me – which you can see he did – aren’t New Yorkers the greatest people on earth??? (okay I am biased on that subject). I was so amazed by these flakes I stopped several people on the street and in Zabar’s to show them. They probably thought I was a nut, but they all praised my flakes and enthusiasm…and then they (the flakes) melted and that was that.
By 6 when I walked Bella the snow had tapered off to almost nothing I was thinking this is going to end up a dud blizzard : ( But here it is 1a.m. and I’m giving Bella her last walk of the day and it’s snowing pretty hard : )
The last blizzard we had I sat in my living room reading three Twilight books (it snowed for 3 days and I read one book each day). It was pure heaven.
In addition to marathon reading, I love to make soup when it’s snowing. BP (before Paleo) I would make hearty bean soups – split pea or lentil, now I make hearty vegetable soups. This one is pretty simple and straight forward and delicious. Everyone who has tasted it has asked for the recipe. If you have a cabbage in your refrigerator, you probably also have everything else you need to make this soup without having to go to the store.
Here’s hoping I’ll wake up tomorrow to a winter wonderland. Happy Snow Day!
