It finally snowed here! We were supposed to get snow starting early this morning, but then it kept getting pushed back and eventually the ETA was 1 pm.
Lo and behold, at 1:10 pm, look what I saw outside:
We’ll come back to the snow. Let’s go back to breakfast. No breakfast sandwich today, but today’s breakfast isn’t very photogenic either.
I had a twist on peanut butter cup oatmeal. Instead of hot cocoa mix, I used some chocolate hazelnut cappuccino mix.
I think this mix would make a great iced drink in the summer-time. Somebody remind me in a few months! 🙂
Ran an errand at lunch and then warmed up some Progresso steak and noodles soup:
Followed by a Morningstar garden veggie burger, pepperjack, and a sandwich thin.
At first the snow was a bit disappointing, but soon it was coming down hard and they let us leave early. Once I finished up some things for a client, I was able to head out into the wintry mess. No way was I taking the highways home — the traffic map was showing all of them as red. I took the streets home and it took me over an hour.
This was the view on the way home:
Don’t worry, the car wasn’t moving when I took this! I don’t have any death wishes!
I got hungry on the way home and broke into my last bag of Weight Watchers cheddar twists.
Luckily, the roads weren’t too bad, mostly slushy. Finally made it home safe and sound.
We decided to heat up some frozen Japanese croquettes, or korokke, as a snack. We buy these when we go to H-Mart. They’re made of potato and vegetables and are usually fried. I used minimal oil to heat these and then zapped them in the microwave in case the inside hadn’t heated through.
These particular croquettes were curry-flavored, so we were calling them Japanese aloo chops. 🙂
For dinner, in honor of the wintry weather, I broke out my bag of holiday-shaped pasta I bought back in December.
Yeah yeah, it has Christmas trees and Santas, but I say it’s still winter-themed.
We heated up some chicken andouille sausages to go with the pasta. Mr. Spice had his with pasta sauce and I went for pesto.
And that’s that. We’re watching the Olympic opening ceremony and then have to turn in early tonight. We’re going to be volunteering at a food pantry tomorrow morning, so I need to get my sleep!
Have a great weekend!
