Listen, the snow is falling o’er town, Listen the snow is falling ev’rywhere.January 18, 2009
Today was a snowy day.. and it was beautiful. Mostly because we didnt have to rush anywhere or have to do anything. The snow fell is big fluffy flakes and clung to the tree branches and each other in winter desperation.
To celebrate our wintery weather, Alex and I made M&M brownies. The Dave and Alex went to play in the snow while I did some house packing. With our move only 3 weeks away, we are doing the best we can to pack what we can, when we can. We’re starting with the office which is probably the hardest room to start with, but then hopefully the rest will seem easier.
For dinner I made a superb paella. I adapted it from a Jacques Pepin recipe. Took some of his ingredients out, put some of my own in, you know how it goes… but it came out fantastic. Chicken, sausage, scallops and shrimp with amazing saffron flavor. I used arborio rice and it was perfect.
So how do I close out a snowy day? Well thats easy. Hot chocolate, of course!
Dark chocolate syrup
touch of mint extract
simmer in a pot
