Rain. Bah Humbug.

Drip 2 - Settings: ISO 400, f/5, 1/30 sec, 100mm macro lens

I don’t know if it’s the gray rainy weather, a cold or just allergies, but I’m feeling ridiculously draggy today – headache, scratchy throat, the works!  Yuck.  I was thinking of the little saying I learned as a child – “April showers bring May flowers” – and that gave me some comfort that at least all this rain isn’t some global warming phenomenon.  April is simply supposed to be rainy.

But I have a little sunshine in my refrigerator in the form of chicken soup!  Heal me!  Heal me!  Oh Jewy remedy of deliciousness!  Yes tonight is our make-up Passover meal because I had a photography class last night and we didn’t do a Seder.  So in a couple hours, we’re heading downstairs to enjoy a home-cooked meal with Rob, Amie and Amie’s brother, Brett.  They’re our little substitute Jewish family.  I like having a tradition that involves cooking and eating with good friends (when family can’t be around) – especially when all I have to do is go downstairs!!

So in addition to my matzo ball soup, Amie is cooking up a lovely roasted chicken and some sugar snap peas and I’m also making some roasted butternut squash and asparagus (not exactly traditional seder food – but delicious!).  So now, it’s time to get cooking!!

I’ll take some pictures of the meal and let you know how it all comes out.  I’m using a different brand of matzo meal so I hope the balls are up to snuff.  Fingers crossed.

Til tomorrow. 🙂
