Gotta love the south

This is what a $20 sled and $25 pail of salt looks like after it snows
in NC...haha. They were out of snow shovels I can just imagine what
that would cost.

This is what you get for being nice

Green eggs and ham

Emily wanted green eggs for breakfast this morning but she is more of
a bacon person than a ham for breakfast. She does like green eggs and
ham, sam I am.

Bayou Bacon wrapped Scallops and Spinach and Artichoke Mac and Cheese.
Both were worth the work.


We have about 6" right now. Still coming down heavily.

Still snowing

Wish we had brought snow shovels when we moved down. Some salt would
be great too....

We got snow!

Got 5-6" overnight and supposed to add a couple more today. Right now
it's doing some kind of frozen sleet/snow thing.

They are calling for 10-16" this time!

Mesa Grill Southwestern Potato Salad

Look up the recipe online. So good but very spicy. Make sure you at
least halve the amount of Cayenne and pureed Chipotle Peppers. You can
always add the spice back in.

The Smoke Shack

That's not really the name but that's what we call it. It's really
just a guy cooking chicken and something that sorta tastes like beef
on a chainlink fence over a mesquite wood fire. Then you sit at a wood
table and eat the meat with some flour tortillas that you have to walk
down the street and buy ahead of time.

It is very scary looking and fails the health code miserably but it
tastes great.
