We had two babysitters, so we were going to go out to dinner, but son got back before we had a chance to sneak out the door. Route 2 has signs warning about flash freezing and T. was already stressed about the snow so that was the end of that. I had a mushroom omelette and home fries for dinner, and a manhattan made with: Hibiki 12 Suntory Whisky, Lacuesta Vermouth, Angostura bitters and a couple Luxardo cherries. I still like the Whistlepig rye better, but this is a perfectly acceptable substitute (I'm not that impressed by the Ri) with a radically different flavor profile.
I'm debating whether I should make german chocolate cake tonight. I made blondies (which will go into the freezer shortly, after I cut them up), and chocolate banana frozen dessert is in the freezer ... freezing. I bought the coconut and coconut milk to make it last week and have been meaning to, since I promised a friend one of the layers and I'm only keeping one in the house. OTOH, I'm a little tired, what with shoveling snow and so forth.
