We woke up to an ice storm on Friday morning. The freezing rain produced icy conditions which prevented us from leaving the house. Schools were closed and with my hill of a driveway, there was no way I could get to work (Yay!!)
Doesn’t the 4Runner look mean with icicles hanging off it?
So we stayed in our pajamas most of the day!! The kids had fun playing with play doh …. (why does that stuff have to make such a MESS!?!)
While I made a crockpot of White Chicken Chili for dinner.
My recipe is adapted from a local restaurant. But I apparently can’t ever leave an original recipe alone. All my recipes look like this … marked up.
And the end result …. YUM!!!
I also took the day off as an opportunity to get in a really good treadmill workout while watching The Biggest Loser.
Hubby made me eggs for breakfast ….
The temperature rose quickly and melted all the ice so we were no longer stuck inside. Which was great since we had plans to go out for my Aunt’s birthday.
We went to Aubrey’s, which is a great local restaurant. In fact, the same people own Aubrey’s that own Sunspot, which is another one of my favorites. So when I saw Salmon BLT on the menu, I sure hoped it was exactly like the one at Sunspot. If you’ll remember, Hubby and I ate there on New Years Eve before our concert.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t the same. While the salmon was tasty, I was disappointed in the bread. If I pay $12 for a sandwich at a restaurant, I expect it to not be on the same bread I can buy at the grocery store.
But the sweet potato fries were really good. (That’s something they don’t have at the Sunspot)!
The kids had fun, and we discovered how much my daughter LOVES honey mustard. She was dipping fries in honey mustard and sucking it off. LOL She may as well have just drank it from the ramekin.
To celebrate my Aunt’s birthday, I made Magic Cookie Bars.
Nothing special about them, really. I just went through a cookbook til I found a recipe with ingredients I had on hand.
Butter, graham crackers, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. That’s all. Nothing healthy about it.
My kids were so good to play together all weekend. Makes for a happy Mommy!!
I’ll leave you with a picture of my lunch on Sunday.
Egg Wrap. Kinda like an egg salad but without the mayo! YUM!!
Sunday was a super lazy day. But that’s how I like them!!
What a wonderful, unexpected 3-day weekend. I could seriously get used to those! Back to the grind on Monday.
