What to do when you have to hunker down! And you know you won't be leaving your home for at least two days.
Shop! Go out as early as you can after you are sure they are actually pretty certain you are going to get over 1/8 of an inch of snow and get milk, eggs, fruit, veggies, and any ingredients you'll need to make yummy food and treats, cold weather supplies, etc. before they sell out... by noon the day before it's supposed to start snowing!
Cook comfort food: Chili! It's never the same every time, but it always contains ground beef (or turkey), red or pink or both kidney beans, canned diced tomatos, a little tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and most of the time a little crushed or ground red pepper. [This is what I cooked for our first (little) snow a couple weeks ago]
Served with: sour cream, grated cheddar cheese, diced onions, and lots of butter for the corn bread!
Pumpkin Pie (w/ homemade crust): made the next day because I was too tired that night=) Our cute little BooBoo was a little handful that night and tuckered us out=)
Get bundled up [from this morning]
ETA: And when the little ones are in bed make homemade hot chocolate with Peppermint Schnapps! =)We were supposed to have a really fun last day of Hanukkah party today but we had to cancel it due to the feet of snow. We had almost 30 people coming! We're hoping to reschedule the partay for the end of January. So that means we will be eating tons of sugar cookies topped with buttercream frosting. I will definitely be sharing the recipe! I hadn't baked all the cakes yet, just in case! Good thing! I'll do a what you missed at the party post soon=). But I cut it down and just made one batch of Spinach and Artichoke Dip, love love. So yummy. I'll share that one too.
I hope you're having a great weekend so far! What's the weather like where you live??
