The sun is shining! We haven't seen blue skies for weeks it seems - it's nice to have a break from back-to-back snowfalls. It makes me want to go outside!
For exactly one and half minutes.
Because it might be sunny, but damn it's cold.
The dogs have been loving the snow. When they're not running around in it, they're at the back door staring at it.
This week there has been snow shovelling, coffee dates, slow cooker failures, muffin successes, and super smoothies.
And mail that makes my stomach do flip flops at the thought that one of my kids may be going away to school in the fall.
I bought a bag of red lentils, and I have no idea what to do with them. I thought I might try this and this.
We've been trying to eat less meat. It's hard. The kids like their meat, and don't always love their veggies. But I think it's important that we try.
And contrary to some entertaining memes that have been making the rounds on the internet, milk is perfectly safe and wholesome. Phew. We use a lot of milk.
Remember how I was using up leftover egg nog from Christmas? Here's another good recipe to try, it'll clear the egg nog and the cranberries out of your fridge!
These Toasted Sesame & Cranberry Black Rice Bars look amazing.
These bean dips look easy, tasty, and healthy.
And this brought tears to my eyes. A gentle reminder to remember how great our kids really are.
