menu: what to cook for a snowstorm

pesto-crusted roast chicken

Because your house will smell divine and the basil is a glimpse of warmer days ahead. PLUS  you can use the carcasses to make this soup tomorrow:

mac and cheese

There is no better partner in a snowstorm.

spicy greens salad with dried figs and aged sherry vinaigrette

The spice and bitterness are the perfect foil to the creaminess of the mac and cheese.

chocolate stout cake with peanut butter frosting

Beer, chocolate and peanut butter.  Yup.

apple/carrot/coconut muffins

Make these for tomorrow and have a lovely little reward for shoveling all that snow.

All I can say is I'm ready.  Bring it on.
