January's Culinary Smackdown was a success, especially considering that tofu was the theme ingredient. Thanks to all for playing! Anonymous Boxer has posted a recap of all the fine entries and pronounced Grumpy Granny the winner. Granny plans to post the details of the February Smackdown in the next couple of days. Once she does, I'll link them under this Smackdown badge on my sidebar.
When I woke up yesterday morning, I could see what Friday night's ice storm had left in its wake. There was even ice clinging to the screen outside my second-floor window.
Brrrr. I wasn't going to leave the house all day. But, taking a cue from the comments to my Battle Tofu post, a hot and hearty breakfast featuring some of my leftover sour cream and caper sauce seemed like a splendid idea. Voila, an omelette stuffed with mushrooms, asparagus, raw milk cheddar, and Browning's country ham, with a Blue Oven English muffin on the side.
Wherever you are, stay warm and eat well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that temps really do warm into the upper 40s today, or I'll have some serious work ahead of me to scrape the ice off my windshield. We're in for more wacky weather this week, but I think my travel plans to Lexington Thursday for another dinner at Azur are safe.
