Thanks for the reassurance, Jackie. Hope my NP "buys" it. BTW, paradoxically, you down in south central IL are in for a lot more snow than we are up here by the lake in Chicago (and up in Lake County it might not even rain). For once during a precip. event, the winds are coming in from the west rather than blowing in from the still-chilly lake. Karen, it's the same storm system that's set to dump inches of snow on CO, KS, & MO. We brought the herb pots in today and they'll stay in the kitchen window till the end of the week, when the lows at night will be >40. (Upside is that till we plant them in the ground, the neighborhood rabbits won't mistake the dill for carrot tops).
Karen, thanks for the reminder about challah rolls. Whenever I'd go to a kosher-style mega-diner, those were the first things I'd grab from the free bread basket (plus a nice half-sour from the pickle bowl). Another "guilty pleasure" midnight carb debauch for me is thin slices of challah toast with salt butter. I don't dare bring challah into the house (except a round one for Rosh Hashonah) for that reason. And Whole Foods' flour tortilla chips...nope, they may have been what started me on the road to ruin when I discovered them in November. I do keep tortillas in the fridge: Mission CarbSense 7" whole wheat ones, 2 gm. net per each. When I miss chips, I'll heat a little olive oil in a small skillet and put one in till it begins to puff up and then flip it. (Or I'll toast it).
Went to Guitar Works in Evanston this aft. to pick up a pair of handmade guitar-print masks (one of their staffer-instructors makes them). Felt weird to have to pick them up curbside, when most shops these days are letting people in.
