Snow days…

People have a misconception on the weather in Seattle. Seattle has a wonderful history of it always raining, let me share a secret, it doesn’t. Seattle’s weather is very mild and temperate all year long. The weather is generally 40-70 degrees Fahrenheit all year round with a few snaps of hot and cold in the summer and winter, respectively.

The weather this winter has been really strange…it snowed today, but true to Seattle, it’s gone.

I ended up working from home today and working on my book for a bit. Have you ever used Scrivener? I just started using it today and it was much easier than I initially thought! If you have used it and can think of any useful tips that aren’t obvious, please share.

I also wanted to share what I ate for dinner today. I had zucchini noodles with lemon-garlic baked salmon.

In my younger years when I didn’t have much money, my favorite cheap and go-to meal was The Homer. If you have ever eaten at the Old Spaghetti Factory, you are aware of this dish; it’s spaghetti tossed with browned butter, seasoning, and mizithra cheese. Now that I’m older (and wiser), I tossed zucchini with ghee, seasoning, and mizithra cheese. Depending on where you live mizithra isn’t a cheese that can be found in your local grocery store, you’ll have to go to a special grocery store (cheese) OR you’re lucky and your local grocery store has a huge cheese selection. When I lived in Boston I could never find this cheese at Stop ‘n’ Shop. To make it more tasty I thinly slice garlic and fry it up in some olive oil to make it crispy, then toss the zucchini to warm it up then toss it with mizithra.
