Scenes from New York - Hurricane Sandy

Well, we made it through the worst of the storm! So far we don't see any damage to our house, though some siding came off of our neighbors house and I'm pretty sure fell on, or scraped, our cars. We'll have to check on that today for further reports. All public transportation is down again today which means another day home!!! :) :) :) I just loved unexpected days off of work. Yesterday, my day started off cuddling with this little lady:

Two trees did come down on our block, and shut down the road on one side of us. It was quite a task trying to get Zoey to even go outside, let alone take care of her business. And I spent lots of time in the kitchen prepping some dinners I'm hoping to tackle this week. 
When I have off of work, I love to try out new and involved recipes that I normally don't have time for. I also wanted to make some non-perishables in case our power went out. (It didn't!)

Yesterday, I tackled some homemade cinnamon buns, and they were met with rave reviews! Which means, Chris approved, so this will be a keeper. I used a recipe from my Cook Illustrated Cookbook, which I also found here.
Any other Hurricane Sandy peeps out there? What did you do with your days off?

Also: Happy Adoption Day to our little Zoey!


  1. Glad you guys are safe and sound! We didn't get it too bad in Mass. Lost power for about 4 1/2 hours, some people still without power, but that was the worst of it! Enjoy your day off!

  2. I'm glad you made it through OK! We also did here in the DC area, though I feel so awful for those who weren't as fortunate. I hope this is the last big storm for a long, long time!

  3. Glad to hear you didn't receive any major damage or issues!!! Keep safe!!!

  4. I want one of those Cinnamon rolls.
    Also, I should try prepping dinners beforehand like that. Huh!
