The word that has been heard most often this winter is SNOW.
Our first snow of the season came in early December.
There was plenty for the kids to sled in and enjoy.
Before Christmas, we got a doozy.
At least, what we once defined as a doozy.. now we define it differently!
But, there was LOTS of snow and the kids enjoyed new games like
building snow forts from the snow hills that the plows leave behind.
Since then, we have had a couple of more snowfalls,
culminating in the Be-all-and-end-all of snowfalls that occurred this past weekend.
It had many monikers:
Snowmageddon was the most often heard.
There were also Snowpocalypse and my personal favorite, SnOMG!
Yes, we had approximately 3 feet of snow dumped on us in a less-than two day period.
It was something to see!
I also got to see Snowthunder and lightning during the Blizzard (at 4 AM)
for the first time ever.
The next day we emerged from the garage to witness a winter wonderland like we had never seen.
(We exited the garage because we didn't dare (and still don't dare!) open the front door or the back slider!)
And now, in 48 hours, we are prepared to do it all again. Snow is forecasted Tuesday evening through Wednesday for anywhere from 6 inches to over a foot, on top of the three feet we have, since the temperature won't rise over freezing.
INSANITY, I say!!
I am not sure when my kids will ever go to school again.
Well, I guess I do know...
They'll be going all summer long!
Menu Plan Monday will consist of using some of what we have and being inventive during this very snowy season.
Pulling from the freezer and pantry,
we will have:
Spaghetti with 50/50 ground beef and turkey
Manwiches with 50/50 ground beef and turkey
Salsa chicken roll ups with fresh veggies
Grilled cheese and vegetable soup (vegetarian meal)
