Rainy/Snowy Day Amusements

Inclement weather is a downer. You need to distract yourself from it. If you're a foodie, here are a couple of Webs sites to browse... -- This is a great site to find new recipes for specific food items. Your neighbor just gave you five pounds of lemons from her tree. Go to and type in "lemons" in the search line. It'll come back at you with recipes for, say, lemon chicken, lemon rice, lemon pie... you get the idea. and -- Both of these sites belong to the respective magazines and contain recipes, how-to tips, "life style" entertainment and contests. -- A compendium of All Things Food/Restaurant I enjoyed a recent blog on what goes on in the kitchens of the Cheesecake Factory chain. No it isn't frozen, each order is made as it is asked for -- which means two hours at the table is nothing, dahling, nothing at all! - This is sort of the Farmer's Almanac of food sites. Today's quote was: "Ask not what you can do for your country; ask what's for lunch!" Orson Welles

It's a very informative site with regular history lessons (food-related) and various forums.

So put your umbrella back in the closet! Sit down and relax!
