Thunder, Lightning, Wind and Rain

Happy Wednesday Everyone! we're getting a mixed bag of tricks this morning with the weather. Thunder, lightning and downpours and a wind advisory. A cold front is moving in after a tease of spring the last few days. Needless to say it's a dreary, dreary day. A dreary day makes me want to read and eat. I just got two new books . The Little Liar by Mitch Albom and The Women by Kristen Hannah. Both are getting rave reviews so it's just a matter of which one to read first. After talking about eggplant with @porwest and @LadyDuck the other day I decided that's what I'm going to make for dinner. I'm going to bread it and then air fry instead of deep frying. We'll have it with a side of spaghetti and my daughter was surprised that I already had a dinner plan in mind. My day is off to a good start

We love eggplant and cooking it in the air-fryer, is a wonderful way to fix it! Enjoy your dinner:)

@kobesbuddy it does such a great job and saves all those calories on actual frying

@Marilynda1225 We've fried other meats in the air-frier, with good results:)

I don't like your mixed bag of tricks from the weather. I like mine better. Beautiful snow. Though we do have high winds here. Enjoy the new books. I also bought a mystery box of books from Christianbook.com. I have ten new books to read. Now to find time to read them. I'd join you in your dinner suggestion, but I don't have eggplant. Enjoy. It sounds delicious.

Enjoy your snow!! Actually it sounds better than what we have. Did I really just say that I got an eggplant with last week's shopping so after taking about eggplant parmesan I figured that's what I would make on this nasty day. Comfort food. Hope you enjoy your new books. Some days I can read for hours and other days barely find time to open my book.

@Marilynda1225 I started one of them, but if I spent so much time reading, you wouldn't have a new book from me to read. I just need to find time.

Mixed bag of tricks? You're not kidding! It went from a high of 14°C/57°F this morning to -1°C/30°F and the occassional snwflake coming down at 5:30. And the wind is still blowing.

A day like that makes you just want to nest at home. I always have things to do here...just got back from picking up that flatscreen though..The guy carried it to the car for me, which was nice. it isn't that heavy though..I should be able to bring it in by myself.

That was nice that the guy helped with the flat-screen. Hope you can manage to get it in the house by yourself.

We're having a warm, windy sunny day here in the sunshine state. It's sure living up to its name today.

@Marilynda1225 You have to come down here sometime. Though it'd be just your luck that it'd rain and you'd get sun back home.

You meal sounds delicious. I am feeling better and took a very small chicken out of the freezer this morning and roasted it for supper tonight. I am happy that I am well enough to do that. Our weather was wild last night, lightening and thunder and today it shifted to very cold and snow streamers and windy.

I'm so happy to hear that you're feeling better. My dinner was delicious and I was happy that today I had the energy to be so ambitious. We're getting downpours of rain this evening and lots of wind. Tomorrow will be back to winter

Eggplant has been on my mind since we were talking about it the other day. I haven't made it in awhile but today I feel ambitious. Enjoy your no rainy day today

Weather was miserable yesterday. Howling winds, freezing temps and blowing s**w. I'm glad it will warm up today. Have a great day.

I hope your eggplant turns out well, as I am sure it did. Onward and upward to you.
