Awaiting the Blizzard

Hi there bloggies:

How have you been? I hope everyone has had a great week so far. Right now I’m fighting a weird cold – but I’m feeling much better. I am also patiently awaiting the Blizzard of 2013. Right here in Providence we are expecting up to 3 feet of snow!!! As storms go, we are right in the bull’s eye of this massive storm. Fun times! I am totally fine with the snow, even large amounts of it every so often. The only thing I worry about is the possibility of losing power and / or water. That would not be cool.

On Wednesday night I filled my Subaru up with gas, and I was not even thinking about the big storm that was being forecasted! I was so lucky that I did – because there were long lines at all of the gas stations yesterday, last night and even this morning. I went to Whole Foods yesterday and it was a zoo. But I bought milk, fresh fruit, vegetables and a chicken breast. I have lots of good food for the weekend – which is a good thing because I do not think I will be leaving the house until Sunday, if I am lucky.

This morning I went out to the gym before the snow started. I got to the gym a few minutes before 8 o’clock and left at 9 o’clock. When I left, it was snowing. I went from the gym to Dunkin’ Donuts where I ordered a medium coffee with milk and no sugar. Oh, it was so good! I really wanted a bagel or something else – but I knew I had plenty of good and wholesome food to eat for breakfast at home.

Breakfast was Kashi Go Lean Crunch, fresh raspberries and milk. By noon, I needed a little more food and I had fresh cantaloupe and pineapple chunks – yum! There is nothing like eating fresh fruit during a snow storm 🙂

This afternoon I decided to cook my WF chicken breast, just in case I lose power later today, tonight or tomorrow. I fixed up the chicken breast with several spices, some olive oil, chopped onions and three garlic cloves:

I covered the chicken with aluminum foil, and popped it in the oven which was at 350. It cooked for about 25 minutes. It looks wonderful now – but I will wait to have some for dinner:

For lunch I had a mixture of lentils, brown rice, reduced fat cheddar cheese and hot sauce. It was very good!

I am fighting the urge to make oatmeal cookies right now. I’ll let you know if I give in and bake up a batch. If you are in the path of the storm, I hope you stay safe and warm. I’ll be back soon – as long as I still have power.

Happy Friday, everyone!
