Fortunately it waited until after we had made the curried vegetables and the spicy channa dhal with rice. We thought about posting a photo of the curried veggies, but food photos are notoriously difficult and curried veggies tend to look yellow and mushy after cooking for an hour. But it was so tasty.
Ruth had the Zabaco Zinfandel with the Indian dishes and Tim had a Silver Peak Pinot Noir (grapes from Carneros, bottled in Lodi).
And after shoveling snow all day in a storm for the ages, we deserved a treat, right? Chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
All in all, a great way to end a stormy day. Then the lights went out.
