Condo meeting tonight. We have quorum by the skin of our teeth. No dinner for me. Too much stress.

Last night I made a warm egg, kidney bean and broccoli salad with whirred up red onion and red bell pepper dressing. And I made popovers. A nice Ash Wednesday evening repast.

I do breakfast for dinner occassionally because it is so easy.

My sona nd I went to the art museum today and it was a nice day. We had lunch at a restaurant I had wanted to try but couldn't get anyone to go with me. It was good but we agreed that other menu items would probably have been better. That we would have liked them more.

Tonight was pancakes, the usual Shrove Tuesday dinner. I'm full, but that's OK moving into Lent. I won't be full again for a long time.

I have a book group tonight so I am not completely sure what we will have. We read Rebecca so the theme is English food, and I am making bubble and squeak...someone is bringing scones, I believe, and the hostess said she was making roast beef.

I saw the storm you New Englanders are having, looks terrible. We are supposed to get snow tonight, but it's a different system and won't be nearly as bad as the last one.

Tonight is pork and hominy. The hominy has been soaking all day, I'll cook it up in a couple of hours.

When I was a kid it was no meat on Wednesdays and Fridays, but then there was never meat on Fridays. Friday school lunches the whole time I was in school alternated between grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup, and fish sticks and cole slaw. During Lent they added Wednesdays. I lived in a very Catholic area.

I got a lot of tax stuff done today and feel much better.

I have had a craving for a cream puff for weeks. I see them at the Wegman's bakery, but I had one from there many years ago and it was awful, filled with whipped cream instead of vanilla pastry cream. So today I made some cream puffs and pastry cream, and had one after dinner. And that's enough. I'm full. I'll end up throwing the rest out. Lent starts on Wednesday so it will be slim rations for 6 1/2 weeks. Lent starts early this year. My #3 son's birthday, my #6 grandchild's birthday and Valentine's Day all fall in Lent. Oh well.

I'll be making a nice dinner for just hubby, son and me tomorrow night. I don't do Superbowl parties anymore; there is too much going on and it's too hard to enjoy the game.

I'm getting taxes together today, I've finished one of 4 so far.

I used to cook special for Super Bowl Sunday but not any more. It is just another day to me. Sorry to all those die hard fans and don't mean to offend. I will probably just bake a chicken breast and have some broccoli/cauliflower blend and a salad. Maybe a sweet potato to go with that.

Pad Thai for dinner tonight.

Is anyone doing something extravagant for Superbowl? I read that Superbowl is the second biggest home food day of the year after Christmas. Which means the stores will be jammed tomorrow, and the carryout folks will be swamped.

Somehow I dropped off the thread. DH was supposed to go off the Island to pick up groceries, but we got hit with yet another snow storm. Tonight we are having linguine wth a lemon Swiss chard sauce. I need groceries for sure tomorrow, and DH is stopping at our favorite fish market. I agree on the change in portion sizes. We used to go out and each order for ourselves. Now we share an entree and salad. Good thing we have similar tastes. I also weigh my pasta portions to 2 ounces per serving. Sometimes I make extra sauce and freeze it for a future meal.

Sadly, I was never able to eat without gaining weight!

I measure my pasta, 2 oz serving dry. Otherwise, I could eat way too much. I love it. I have found that I am better off when I can eliminate all grain, but when I go for any length of time, I just crave it. Portioning bread is my bete noire.

Sharon, I weigh pasta before cooking, 3/4 oz per bread exchange. I usually have 2 bread exchanges with a meal, but only if there are no other breads involved, like peas. Weighing before cooking is, to me, the key to control.

I made pasta, cheese and asparagus tonight. Anything with pasta is comfort food.

Barbara, I was thinking as I was driving around today past a bunch of restaurants that we used to eat at years ago, wondering how I ate out without the weight gain I'd have now. We used to eat out all the time when we were working, lunch and/or dinner. It was fun and yummy, but I just can't do it anymore. I think portion sizes have enlarged over the last 30 years, and we are both older. It's sad but I'm grateful I live in an area where there are a lot of great food stores and I can make delicious food. Sometimes I do wish I were still able to eat like I used to.

I ended up with a half sandwich and salad, which is what I will have tonight at a different place! I did get some cabbage today so I can make tortilla soup (without tortillas!). I'm going out to eat tomorrow night as well, no idea what dinner will be there.

Having lunch out today at Corner Bakery. It';s ok. On my own, probably wouldn't have chosen it, but when you are with other people, sometimes control of where has to defer to control of what. I think I am going for a bowl of soup.

Last night I made pizza. I love spinach, black olive and feta pizza. I got lazy though and used frozen pizza dough. Tonight is noodles and sausage and ricotta and tomatoes. Now that I'm allowed to lift over 10 pounds, I can carry a pasta pot again!

Barbara, wet roads can be very slick for the first 15 minutes as the oil on the surface becomes a slick before washing off. That might be hard for drivers to remember if they don't have to deal with it often, so a day curled up sounds like a good idea.

I was very bad this morning--I woke up, intending to drag myself tot he gym, only to find that it is raining out. And my leg was hurting again. So I bailed and am staying in all day. Truthfully, it rains so little that it is becoming a a "thing" to drive in it!! I'm fine but people out here just don't know how to drive in rain, and it gets pretty hairy out there. OK, so I am rationalizing, so a degree.....

I'm back from the doc. They took xrays, and the surgery was a success. I have been restricted to lifting no more than 10 pounds, and now I can go up to 20 pounds. I need physical therapy, and they'll up my capability. Still no impact activity that will jolt my neck. By summer I will be back on my motorcycle!

Tomorrow I go back to the doc for my surgical follow up. I'll see how I'm doing.

Today I need to get to the grocery store. I sure hope the stores have been able to restock.

We had more snow in 1996, I remember that one well. In 2009-2010 we had 3 back to back storms dumping a foot and a half each, so the total was overwhelming but only one record storm.

Hubby just tried to get out to the health club, but says the roads are gridlocked. I was out yesterday, one of few cars on the roads, and the roads were narrowed by snow, so I can see that traffic that has a hard enough time on 4 lanes will be impossible on 2 lanes. It's going to be another week of plowing to get the region back to a semblance of normality.

Good Wednesday morning gang! Nell glad that you can get out and drive some now! Is this the biggest snow fall you had in Virginia? If we got that much snow it would take us a long time for normal to return .

It will be awhile before normal returns, but we got newspapers mid morning, and I got out to Walmart. The shelves were still stripped from the storm, but I got a few things. I'll try again at another store tomorrow. Driving is hard, barely two lanes left on any road with mountains of snow on either side. Parking lots are more snow mountain than parking space. We aren't going hungry, that's for sure.

It warmed up today and now it's turning into mud city. However that beats high winds and no power. Tonight is swordfish with roasted squash and cranberries and a mixed blend of rice.

My hubby and the folks on our street did an amazing job yesterday digging us out. There were 4 snowblowers in total, and they all managed to get one car width clear along the whole length. I got out today to go to Walmart, and it's a war zone out there. Four lane roads reduced to 2, mountains of snow everywhere, many streets untouched. Walmart was stripped bare, I've never seen it like that. It's going to be another week to begin to get back to normal.

I did hear on the evening news that people were complaining also about not seeing the snow plows to dig them out? I guess it's who you are and where you leave that get the good service?
I hope they come and help you and others out today?
Hope everyone has a good day?

So far no plows to be seen. Something is wrong when taxpayers, in addition to the usual digging out the driveway, have to dig out their own streets while state plows are hanging out at 7-11. Really. Someone is going to lose a job over this one.

Wow! That is a whole lot of snow...glad you are staying put and I side till they get all that snow plow and the roads and street are clean. How is the snow on your house roof tops? Do you have to get the snow clean off of the house too. If I know you if you could you would be out I. It cleaning the snow away? So I am glad you can not to the lifting and pushing of the snow.

Our power finally came back at 7:00 am today. It was cold with no heat. Cooked dinner with a flash light. The sun came out late morning and at 3:00 this afternoon all power on the island was restored. We got 20 inches, but with hurricane winds there was a lot of drifting. Due to a north east wind a lot of our snow blue away so clean up wasn't too bad. It's back to work tomorrow. Tonight chicken meatball in a tomato kale sauce over polenta.
