I think mother nature has decided that a new ice age is a good idea and that its all gonna start this last January. we have a good 3 to 3.5 feet of snow on the ground here. Today we have yet another storm that will yield 2 more feet of snow. Then this Saturday we get another Nor’easter. This pattern of multi-foot storms several times a WEEK is meant to last for weeks to come.
We are very weary of the snow and the loads of money flying out of our checking account to the plow guy.
As you might imagine, holidays would be just grand during this time of misery but they all seem to have been used up last fall!
At this point the “Feast of the Echidna” sounds festive – too bad we dont observe it.
I am not usually the romantic type, by a long shot, but I am feeling a powerful hankering for SOME holiday to break up the endless snow days.
For this reason, I am considering more of a production for this year’s Valentine’s Day. Around here it will be a celebration of the love between family and will be kid oriented.
I am still working on what sorts of foods might be cheerful for a Valentine’s Day afternoon meal. I know I want to do it before the sun goes down and be more like a picnic inside sort of concept.
I think it will involve chocolate, red, maybe some cinnamon, maybe strawberries.
Stay tuned to see what we come up with and please leave a comment telling us what you do for Valentine’s Day!!
