Snowstorm & Comfort Food

In case you've been living under a rock, we had a kind of enormous snowstorm, and then another, smaller, storm. We have been sort of "snowed in" - we only got one car dug out Saturday, mine is actually rescuable from it's space, but there is about 6 feet of snow between the car and the street right now.
Wednesday we went to the grocery store, only to find it had just closed, so we went up to CVS and got some pop tarts and juice. Since we go grocery shopping once a week, we didn't get caught up in the madness of buying milk and bread... Of course, a gallon of milk and loaf of bread only lasts so long, and after a while we decided we were a little hungry.
On Thursday, after hearing rumors that Trader Joe's was stocked, we still tried to go to Safeway, but upon discovering that they still didn't have vegetables or milk we walked two miles to Trader Joe's and got some real groceries. Milk! Half and half! Bread! Cheese! Yum.
So I made this for dinner:

And this is after we devoured it (hungry from that 2 mile walk):

Sooooooo best mac & cheese recipe EVER.

We've also been being a little crazy and doing a lot of running. On Thursday, SB and I went for a five mile run on our usual loop. This involves crossing the Key Bridge and running along the Potomac and then passing Arlington Cemetery. Can you guess how much of that was plowed? Yeah, about half of it. Let me tell you, running through three feet of snow is an amazing workout.
