Let it Snow...Let it Snow...Let it Snow!!!

They say that today could be a record breaker. It hasn't snowed this much, this early, in 60 years! It's put us all in a very festive mood. Much to the dismay of certain family members we have done the unthinkable.....put on Christmas music! LOL We also fixed a special breakfast and had homemade chili and cornbread for lunch. Yum!! The girls are right now as I type, playing outside in the snow. What a wonderful treat! One of my all time FAVORITE meals! The recipe comes from the BEST cookbook called Fix Freeze Feast by Katie Neville and Lindsay Tkacsik. Once a month the girls and I spend time preparing meals and then freezing them. We used to spend a weekend, now we break it up over the course of a week. It's much more fun that way. I highly recommend it as both a time saver as well as a money saver too.
Rosebud is always checking cookbooks out from the library. I think she's the one who found this cute idea. It's just a pancake put into a cupcake tin and baked briefly to hold the shape. Then filled with berries and topped with whipping cream. YUM!!
We were listening to Christmas music while doing school today. And all of a sudden a silly song came on by Alvin and the Chipmunks that made us all laugh! Sorry about the blurry pics lately. I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my camera.

Well, I'm off to enjoy this winter wonderland!!

There's just something about the first snow fall of the year that cries out for a pot of chili simmering on the back burner.

Enjoy the winter wonderland!

Sounds fun! I love Christmas music! But my mom thinks it is way too early... :( I love Christmas music and I could listen to it all year long if I was allowed!!!
