Friday, it's Friday!


This was the week that winter finally appeared.


Two snow days, pancakes, homemade protein bars, and a few oh-so satisfying nutrition bowls that make me wonder why I don't make them more often.


And while the kids were shoveling, I was pinning recipes for cold weather comfort food, like Beef Barley Soup and Maple Roasted Blueberry Almond Oatmeal.

There was Homemade Hot Chocolate and another batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These No Sew Fleece Blankets would be perfect right now, and so easy!

I made a cake on the weekend, which was a ridiculous amount of work.  I like the look of this one much better.  Throw-It-Together Texas Sheet Cake - I'll be trying it this weekend!

And now that most of the Christmas decorations have come down (OK, except for one tree...and the outdoor lights, but they're buried so they don't count), the house feels bare.  Hello Winter Decor Ideas!

Happy Friday, Happy Weekend!

  5. Healthy food is so deliciously good and good for you. Your spread makes my mouth water and like you, I have snow days now too ... many of them. Not kids home from school because my kids are grown, but my little Mini Aussi is a snow hound. She loves it when it is cold out because her coat is so heavy that any other weather is uncomfortable. Lovely post, Jenn, and glad to appreciate the cold when we are so often complaining about it. Have a wonderful, refreshing weekend ...

  6. Hi Jenn, I love the snow picture. We don't get snow days here, in fact we rarely get snow. Beef and barley soup would go down a treat on a cold winters day in this house.

  9. I'm not a winter person but I like the quote! It makes me think of cozy winter nights cuddled up on the couch or in my bed watching TV and drinking hot chocolate:) #candidcuddles

  12. Your snow is so lovely! I wish we had snow in Ireland. My kids would love a snow day or two. Taking down the Christmas decorations is the worst job. It's great when it's done though! #mg

  19. Never heard of 'nutrition bowls', but yours look very tasty. I have been meaning to make my own protein bars again, they are sooo good, but... maybe this weekend.

    Thanks for linking up at Saturday Art and apologies for being so late!
