Batten Down The Hatches

It's gonna be a bumpy night.....

Wind wise that is. We have a wind advisory up here. I kinda had to giggle when I heard about it this morning. Gusts up to 40 mph. Ha. I laugh at that. Remember? I lived in Florida last year. I'll show YOU wind.

But....it's different sitting here in the Little Blue Cracker House. I got home from work a little early (don't ask, and yes - I'm still employed) and put in some cabbage/potatoes/carrots and onions in a roasting pan. Added a little beef broth and some seasonings and put those in to roast. Then I took a beautiful rump roast and brushed it with olive oil added more seasonings and lots o' fresh garlic and put that into roast. Going for Medium/Medium Rare this evening - accompanied by horseradish and some dinner rolls fresh from the oven.

I'll hunker down with that and (hopefully) a movie and list to the wind roar.

And it really is. Roaring that is. When those gusts hit, they shake my little sanctuary. Oh, not like Charlie or Frances - but shaken none the less.

So I'm thinkin' it'll be a quiet night. I just hope the roast turns out.......

Roast tastes much better when it's cold and blustery outside *grin* That's why they call it comfort food.

As the hurricane said to the coconut tree, "hang on to your nuts, this ain't no ordinary blow job!"

There are few things as satisfying as sitting in your home with good food and good entertainment while the weather, be it snow, rain, wind, rages outside.

The other thing is that winds down in Florida won't freeze your ass solid in seconds.... Granted, hurricanes are several orders of magnitude suckier, but a -20 degree windchill pushed by winds that rip through your clothes like you ain't even wearing a coat suuuuuuck!
