Let It Snow … And Blow!

December 22, 2008

It’s been snowing like crazy today and then the wind started to blow. At this point we are officially snowed in. Or at least until we can get the snowblower going to get us out. Actually I wouldn’t mind being really, really snowed in! I wouldn’t have to go to work and could just hang out at home. Guess we’ll have to see what it’s like in the morning.

Our special dinner on Sunday was really nice. We ate by candlelight and talked about our “presents” to Jesus. It actually ended up being kind of a goal setting session with everything talking about things they’d like to improve or do better at. We decided we’d have another dinner at Easter and check up on where everyone was at. We had some yummy pasta with chicken, pesto-parmesean cream sauce, mushrooms, and garlic. (Did my kid’s eat it…NO… they just had plain noodles with butter and parmesean cheese – someday hopefully they’ll know what wonderful food experiences they are missing). We also had salad and asparagus and some Martinelli’s sparking apple juice.

I also made 12 cake pans full of cinnamon rolls for neighbor gifts. They are so yummy! I’m glad they turned out so good.

Here’s where I got the recipe http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/pws-cinnamon-rolls1.pdf

I didn’t use as much butter to drizzle on the dough. It made it hard to roll up and it squished out all over. I also didn’t use the coffee or maple in the frosting and used vanilla and more milk instead. Definately a keeper recipe and other than waiting for the dough to raise not really very complicated.

Oh boy – I’ve really gotta start eating better! There’s been way too much of the goodies and stuff going on and I’ve gotten back into some really bad habits!

    Hi Taci.

    I’m so sorry about your Grandma. It’s such a hard to thing to see them go, and I know that you’re missing her like crazy. I know what you mean when you say that the older we get, the more loved ones we see move on to the next life, and I agree…it really stinks.

    I hope that you all had a good Christmas! Hang in there. It seems like Christmas ends, and that’s when I get the blahs…. Oh, well.

    I was just thinking about you and hope that you know I appreciate you and your friendship.

    Have a good day!
