January 10, 2009 Snowy Saturday

A good day to stay indoors. So of course we were up and out early to the local Saturday antique market, but not because we expected a lot of activity. And indeed, scarcely an eighth of the vendors braved the elements to open for business. No fabulous finds for us today, but we did need groceries anyway, and hadn’t wanted to buck the crowds shopping yesterday afternoon in anticipation of the storm.

So we picked up potatoes, bananas, a lemon and an avocado at the farmer’s market, then headed to the supermarket for milk, bread, eggs (not just because it was snowing- we really needed all those) and of course, cat food. The roads were getting a bit worse by 9:30, but we were almost home already when we stopped at our great local butcher shop for the rest of tonight’s dinner.
A day like today demands comfort food, so we’d decided last night that it would be meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Now we’re ready for whatever Mama Nature tosses at us!
