Today was pretty low key, being snowed in and all.  The grand total, per the NWS, is just over 38 inches of snow.

We did breakfast for dinner tonight!  I attempted omelets, but this quickly turned into scrambled eggs with a little shredded cheddar and salsa on top.  The cheese was left over from Spike’s grilled cheese masterpieces. 

Not sure when the roads will be cleared, so the next few meals should be interesting! We’ve got leftover turkey chili thawing (great for tomorrow night’s game), along with pizza dough for a special treat.

Good night!


We’ve been wanting to recreate the old standby of grilled cheese and tomato soup since enjoying them in a couple of local restaurants (The Rumor Mill in Ellicott City, and Donna’s in Columbia–both excellent and subjects of future posts) a few months ago.  So, Spike set to work.

The sandwiches were made from delicious sourdough bread from Wegmans.  Oh Wegmans, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.  Inside was a combo of Gruyere and sharp cheddar, with a little bacon for good measure.  The soup was also homemade, and was quite good! Definitely beats Campbell’s from a can.  Spike threw in a little habenero hot sauce for just the right amount of heat in the background.  Definitely a recipe worth repeating!
