Snow Day 2011

In what will become the Epic Blizzard of 2011, we were snowed in like the rest of the Chicago area. We have four foot snow drifts outside of the front and kitchen doors. Our house is covered with snow.

We started the morning with cinnamon rolls, an impulse buy from Whole Foods a few weeks ago. Turned out to be the best impulse buy ever. They're The Immaculate Bakery and they're amazing. See, happy face?

The little guy was dying to play in the snow, so we hit the road...

Played barista in his little house. The kiddo is quick to offer a grande skim latte.

And then we just kicked back and enjoyed the snow. W loved, loved, loved it.

The rest of the day was spent working and cooking. There's something about snowy days that makes me feel like we should eat well... Spinach salad for lunch, crock pot rotisserie chicken and butternut squash for dinner, and rice pudding for dessert.

Being snowed in can be kind of fun. And delicious.
