I had to close the school for the day...we ended up getting over 1 foot of snow. It is extremely rare when I close, so I felt like a fish out of water! We were in the "wild card" section according to the news team. We didn't know if it was going to rain or snow.
It was a real heavy snow. I was worried about the weight of the snow on my house's upper deck. It looked like a good work out, so I went for it! It was really heavy but I enjoyed it. I had country music blasting out of the outdoor speakers.
I should have worn these:
I then prepared Goya's 16 dried beans and cooked them the rest of the day with chicken broth, diced fire roasted tomatoes, sweet peppers, celery, carrots, onions, chili powder, cayenne pepper, ground chicken and red pepper. It made for an awesome dinner!
...What to do next? My husband read an article the other day about how Roxy's favorite biscuits (milkbone) can cause cancer. I decided to try a recipe I found on-line.
Yes, they are snowman shaped! And Roxy loved them!
Here is the recipe:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk (I used skim)
Preheat oven to 375
Mix it all together then roll it out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut it into desired shape with cookie cutter.
Bake for 20 mins or until golden brown.
My husband and I also used the day to research SUVs. We have been looking and visited several car dealers for three months now. Our Saab (Wasaabi) is on it's last wheel.
She made it to 130,000 miles yesterday and the heater died!! Then Wasaabi stalled out at a light on the way home. We have been putting a quart of oil in every 1,000 miles. Our mechanic advised not putting any more money into the car.
We decided we really like the 2011 Saab SUV. We were hesitant because Saab is no longer in business, but have been assured that we can get parts. We saw two on-line with low miles that we like in Illinois, so we may fly out early next week to check them out. We found a real cheap airfare, and think the road trip back will be fun.
So, I got a lot done during my snow day!
I hope you did too!!
