Let it snow!

Actually, you can stop any time now! We got something like 2 feet of snow since Sunday night. It's the biggest snowfall I remember since the big storm of '78 back when I was like 7 or something. The snowdrifts seemed so much bigger back then-- I remember hollowing them out and crawling inside of them. But let me tell you something, New York can't handle its snow as well as Chicago can. It's a good thing yesterday was a holiday.

I am in the midst of final project hell for school: Develop a complete, cohesive menu of 5 each appetizers, entrees and desserts. Good thing I have a boyfriend who likes to eat. On Friday, I made him dinner:

Buttermilk Asparagus Soup

Loin of Rabbit Stuffed with Roasted Garlic and Rosemary on a Bed of Polenta with Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Chocolate Fondue

Everything turned out pretty good, except that we didn't eat til around 10. And I cut myself doing the dishes the next day.

Then on Sunday night I got together with some classmates to work on some more recipes. I did a sauteed flank steak with Point Reyes Blue Cheese Demi-Glace sauce, plus oven-roasted potatoes with olive oil and rosemary. Simple, but yummy. Now I just need to come up with 12 more!
