Hey, It's The Weekend!

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.

These Sweet Potato Tacos look really good.  So does this Power Veggie Sandwich.

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 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.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Hooray for the weekend! It is sunny here today and just warm enough to actually go out for a bit and not lose an appendage ;-)

  2. The muffins look tasty! Good luck with the college admissions!

  3. Hallelujah for weekends. And I've never had a problem of getting rid of eggnog - granted, I only allow myself to purchase small containers otherwise I would drink the whole thing.

  4. Those Brownies look amazing! I have to say that I am so pleased we have not seen the snow here in our part of the UK! #PointShoot

  5. I am always so jealous of snow photos, I know you say how cold it is and I guess if it snowed where I live I would probably get sick of it, but it looks so pretty and fresh. I am also in love with the coffee and cake pic I need a coffee right now. #mg

  6. Wow, look at the snow but it is good job you have some yummy comfort food X #pointshoot

  7. Ohh, snow is bad, evil sky vomit!! Im glad youhad some blue sky though, that does make a huge difference to my day. The muffins and the brownies look fabulous.
