It’s been a short school week with a snow day on Friday and it continues over the weekend. We’re getting quite a snow in Asheville, North Carolina. Some areas are receiving 12-16 inches, while my area is less than a foot, but we’re still snowed in playing games, sledding, napping and of course, eating well.
Since we had no school on Friday, I made a big pan of our healthier biscuits. Three of us love summer blackberries that my husband cans himself. He grew up on them and I am hooked.
It doesn’t get better than this on a snowy day.
The other three ate farm fresh brown eggs from a colleague at school. I’ve been blessed throughout this school year to purchase eggs for only $2 a dozen even when they were much higher at the grocery store. My seven-year-old made the eggs all by himself.
I started a huge crock pot full of potato soup while we went out to play. Soup and homemade bread hit the spot for dinner. My kids went crazy for this since I had chopped cooked bacon on the table.
This is a fantastic 1-hour bread recipe I’ve been making from the Frugal Girl. Stay tuned I’ll post the recipe tomorrow.
My oldest son built his own ramp to jump. He’s into craziness.
My daughter is enjoying her dad’s $1 yard sale purchase from the summer.
After some more snow on Saturday and leftover soup for lunch we enjoyed chicken fajitas for dinner.
It was a nice fresh change from soup and we are exercising while eating all of this delish food. I’ve been running three miles a day on my treadmill and this year my husband is joining me. He’s been exercising more than me by shoveling, bringing in wood for the fire and running. I’m not planning to catch up :0
What comforting foods are you eating over snow break?
