We were supposed to go on a field trip today…
This was taken at 8am, after Meeker attempted to dig us out, and it has been snowing like crazy
all day long.
If you didn’t already guess…I had another snow day today! I can’t really believe it. Consecutive snow closures haven’t happened (to me) since I was a senior in high school…and that was in MARCH, this is still fall! I think we’re really in for it this winter…
We had so little food in our house that the only option for breakfast was squash.
I’m not complaining.
This is about ¼ of a butternut squash, chopped and cooked with a little butter in a sauté pan. I also added cinnamon, sage, and nutmeg – then drizzled the whole thing with maple syrup. It was divine.
Next, I did day 4 of the 30-Day-Shred (thank goodness for workout DVDs on days like this!!) and it kicked my butt (again). I may have started crying at one point.
While I was working out – Meeker pulled a chicken out of the refrigerator, and roasted it. It was beautiful.
We picked at the bird for a while, but then decided that we really needed to brave the storm for groceries- especially if this snow doesn’t let up soon. We didn’t want to be buried in our house with nothing to eat. So, we got in the car and…got stuck 5 seconds later. Luckily, I married a very strong boy, and he was able to push my car into movement both times that I thought we were going to have to abandon the car and hoof it the rest of the way.
We did make it to the grocery store and back and I only wanted one thing when we arrived home. Fruit.
In the form of cereal.
That is one gala apple and a couple handfuls of pomegranate seeds with cinnamon and vanilla soy milk. Gah – this is so good. I will never be sick of it. I also had a toasted ww English muffin with butter on the side.
It is still snowing and blowing, and I can’t see an end in sight, so I am going to make something warm to drink, and curl up on the couch with my book.
Have a great Thursday! If it’s sunny where you are…send some rays our way!
