We got our first winter storm of the season today. You can bet I was glad to be home instead of out in it. Driving in winter conditions doesn’t bother me, it’s the other drivers out there that scare me! You get the people who drive like it’s a bright, dry summer day, then you get the ones that really should’ve stayed home because they’re SO incredibly freaked out. Here’s a few shots from my back deck;
Weather like that warrants a hearty breakfast!
1 cup water
1/2 cup kamut flakes
Enjoy Life mountain mix trail mix
We lost our satellite signal for most of the morning. I even took a broom to the dish to clear the slush to no avail. What are 2 girls to do? Watch Twilight again, of course!!! :D I’m team Edward and DD is team Jacob so we’ve got some pretty fun rivalry going on. Haha!!
We agreed that it was a soup kinda day for lunch so I warmed up the Campbell’s Hearty Garden Vegetable that I received in the mail last week;
We split the box and had some Dr. Kracker cracker on the side.
My thoughts on the soup? I really liked how thick it was and that it was jammed packed with whole pieces of vegetables. Both bonuses. I can’t say that I loved the flavour of the soup, though. I much preferred it when I had a bite of cracker with it. DD, on the other hand, loved everything about it and asked for seconds. I’d give it a 3/5.
Much later in the afternoon I made a fantastic little snack for myself. I combined cottage cheese, crushed pineapple and some Nature’s Path banana almond cereal;
Booya! I love cottage cheese with pineapple!
The meal plan for tonight was a roast done in the crock pot but seeing as I’m home (which I didn’t think I’d be) I decided to roast it in the oven. I surrounded the meat with red onion wedges and a few cloves of garlic and kept the seasonings simple with just some salt and pepper. I roasted it at a lower temp for a bit longer than normal and we were rewarded with a tender piece of meat. I ate mine with onions (LOVE roasted onions) and the last of my butternut squash;
Right after dinner I went down to the school for parent teacher interviews then I came home and picked DS up for swimming lessons. When that was done we went to the store to buy him some new winter boots. Poor kid had none today! I was a little hungry when we got home so I grabbed a few pieces of dried fruit when something nasty happened. I crunched on something and when I spit it out I realized that it was half of one of my molars. WTF??? The damn tooth just broke apart and now I have to call the devil dentist to get it fixed (somehow). You all know how I feel about going to the dentist, right? For the love of God…..
On the bright side, Swimming lessons are now done until January. YIPEE!! Do you have something wrapping up for the year this week?
