So, here we go again.  Pk and I have work tomorrow and will have time to go to the gym and maybe even out to the diner for dinner before the snow really starts.  And then the fun starts.......

We had no plans for the weekend and it's not a grocery shopping weekend so we're ready.  We have plenty of milk, eggs and bread (required when snow is in the forecast) and can hole up in the house for the day.  I'll make a pot of soup and maybe some bread for dinner.    I can work on my swatch for the Evenstar kal and Pk has three discs from Netflix to watch so we should be able to keep ourselves busy.

We've been watching the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (BBC version) and enjoying it quite a bit.  Cheesy special effects and bad dialogue, what's not to love?

Tonight we had a dish we made up after having something similar in a Moroccan restaurant.  I put some olive oil, lemon peel and garlic in the stick blender bowl and chopped it all together.  I put that on some chicken and added some assorted olives.  I baked it all for about an hour.  Then I made some bulgur wheat with tomatoes.  It's tasty and fairly low in fat.  While we're not dieting per se, we are trying to eat healthier.  It won't do us much good to go to the gym if we're eating lots and lots of fats.  Unfortunately, it's the fats that taste so good.

We bought some snow melt on the way home.  One bag for us and one for Kate.  Their apartment complex doesn't seem to pay a lot of attention to their front steps.  I guess we're as ready as we can be.

I'll be really disappointed if it's all hype........:

So, looks like snow this weekend huh?!!

Big pot of soup and homemade bread sounds fabulous!

Hitchhikers is great, isn't it? Check out the original radio series if you can get it, it's actually a whole load better (if you can't find it anywhere let me know and I'll lend you mine if you want)

Sounds like you've got everything you need for a snowbound weekend:)

I think you'll get it. Northern NJ though probably won't. I'd gladly trade you!

Dinner sounds wonderful. Good luck with the snow, I woke up to rain this morning.

When we have bad weather coming, we stock up on gas for the electric generator, or kerosene for the lanterns, or candles. Don't you ever lose power?

Hoping you get through this one safe and warm.

It started snowing here (Pittsburgh) around noon and started sticking within an hour. Now the flakes just keep getting bigger and bigger. once I pick up the Hubster, I'm in for the night!

that chicken sounds astoundingly good. I love Moroccan food so much!

I long for a snow day. Yours sounds like it will be snuggly and warm and comforting.
If you like Hitchhiker, have you tried Red Dwarf?

The chicken recipe sounds really good-- and I guess you can see that it's not all hype!!!
