I woke up this morning and looked outside to discover that the 5cm of snow we were supposed to get turned into a blizzard, it's still snowing. I admit I am being lazy today, so far I have done nothing more ambitious than google crockpot chicken recipes and throw all the ingredients in the crock pot.
In a bit I am going to clean the kitchen, tackle the mess in the kids bedroom, and then go outside with the family and shovel... Maybe. I still have frostbite on my hands so if it actually does reach -45 with the windchill I can't go outside and risk freezing my hands again.
My food choices yesterday were better than normal but still not as good as they should be. I have come to the conclusion that I need to plan my meals better, and do more prep work so that there is always fruit or containers of cut vegetables in the fridge that I can just grab on the go if needed. On that note, I need to buy some more Tupperware too, I don't know how I have so many containers but no lids.
I also want to say thank you to everyone who commented on my last post, the encouragement means a lot to me.
Now, I need to stop procrastinating because the temptation to curl up under a fuzzy blanket with a cup of tea and a book is starting to win out over the actual need to clean the house.
But before I go a question for everyone, I got the crockpot for Christmas, have never used one before, does anyone have any recipe or cook book recommendations? It seems like the majority of crock pot recipes have canned soups, cream, lots of butter or creak cheese in them, all things I want to avoid.
