another windy, lengthy snowstorm hit us on sunday. not nearly as fierce as nemo, thank goodness, but close enough. some big gusts, but the power prevailed! so in the end, we got our relaxing day of stormy weather. we could open the fridge as much as we wanted to, make whatever we desired and run the water to clean it all up. the oven was on nearly all day. we started with our big sunday breakfast and hot chocolates all around, but whirled up some smoothies later per special request. a certain someone is ready for some warm weather treats to start coming out of the kitchen, and rightly so::
a little dollop of vanilla yogurt on top for good measure. then it was on to some bread making and soup simmering::
yes, those are heart shaped carrots (inspired by a pin). i warned you that the valentines day ideas would be trickling in. this was the most comforting pot of chicken soup i've ever made. perfect for our perfect snow day. power during a storm is a very lovely thing.
