Its snowing, its snowing. Hey, this is very exciting for New Jersey these days. I can remember as a kid having tons of snow. Actually, I took snow man building very seriously. I used to create snow sculptures, not your every day 3 balls stacked on top of each other. Anybody could do that. Jeez.
So, when my two boys asked me to come outside and “help” them make a snow man, you know I had to oblige. (especially after I saw their meager first attempt. Yikes. It looked more like a snow slug than man.)
So, out we trudged and I proceeded to teach them how to make a respectable snow man. Actually, snow soldier as you can see. He is now keeping a watchful eye on us through my kitchen window. I have to say, I think what I love most about a snowy day, aside from the sheer glee in my boys, is the way it makes the whole house take on this peaceful light. My kitchen has windows on three sides and the whole room just glows.
So, consequently, on the rare occasion that we get a day like this, after my chilly visit to the outside world, I enjoy hanging in the kitchen, putting something in the crock pot or on the stove, and maybe even baking something. I know I am not alone with this one either. A good cook loves a snowy day.
On today’s menu is the Turkey, Butternut Squash Crockpot Chili I posted a while ago. Yum. And, very healthy. Give it a try. And thank you for indulging me with your attention to this post. Now, get out there and build a snow man.. Here’s one last picture to get you motivated. Hey, and if you dare, send me a picture and we’ll just see who builds the best snowman. Bring it on! Oh, I mean it. See, I get a little scary when it comes to snowmen, oh, and Christmas trees. Just wait ’til Christmas and you’ll see.
Oh, the humanity!!!
