We are getting a BLIZZARD! This is what it looks like around my house! Winter Wonderland :)
Today, of course, the kids don't have school and we won't be leaving our pajamas! We have plans for movies, crafts and a whole lot of nothin'
But we still have to eat, so here is what we are having!
The hubby and I woke up later than usual 8am. The kiddos got up earlier, but immediately started playing legos and let us sleep! So we did and it felt great, but it did put our first meal quite a bit later than normal.
High Carb Day
Omelet with mushrooms and onions, a little garlic and herb Mrs. Dash and a side of strawberries!
Chocolate protein shake with a banana in it!
Ground Turkey (they were out of ground chicken at the grocery store) peas and carrots with buffalo sauce! This was really good. I have made a bunch of similar recipes, but they always contain rice. This time I used more of the starchy veggies and didn't add rice. I think, I might have liked this combination better! This was technically lunch, but we didn't eat it until 2:30pm.
Chicken Fajitas! Super easy and delicious! We put the filling inside Brown Rice tortillas from Trader Joes. Mike told me 3 times how good these were, they will be making it to our table a lot!
Since we started the day so late, the last meal ended late. We had dinner at meal 4, instead of 5. So that left a snack. I looked in the fridge trying to think of something creative to have as a snack, but I saw the bowls of Buffalo Turkey for the rest of the week and it sounded, really good! So I ate it again! Twice in one day. Not much of a snack, but since I can't have ice cream or popcorn which is what I would have really liked to have had, it had to do!
The kids ate a lot of breakfast items on this snowy day! They had french toast sticks for breakfast, strawberry waffles for a snack and then toast for lunch. I'm not sure what was up with the breakfast kick, but as far as I am concerned anything goes during a blizzard!
They also consumed a bunch of this yumminess after they went outside.

We braved the cold twice, I say "we" but I only braved it once and that was quite enough for me! The kids and Mike went out again later on and they had a great time. They just thought it was the coolest thing ever to have as much snow as we do! I have to admit, I think it is pretty cool too, but only because my whole family could stay home and be safe! If I had to drive it in it, I am sure I would be a little bitter about 28 inches of snow!
Here are a few more pictures from yesterday #blizzard2015
|This is the view from the side of our house! We still had hours of snow after this :)|
I can't wait to get out there today with the camera, when it isn't still snowing and crazy windy, to get some more pictures of just how deep the snow is. This is a memory we won't want to forget!
Hope everyone who was in the blizzards path yesterday stayed safe and warm!
