Tasty Tidbits

Last weekend we went to the cabin. So much snow! I thought we had a lot here, especially after last week's Thursday craziness, but they have so much more there.
We did some cross-country skiing, which was lots of fun. The first time we went out, it snowed the whole time. It was so pretty.

This is the view from inside the cabin, right next to the fireplace. That's the best spot to be!

In the afternoon, we baked cookies. Mom & I made these Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies that we made every Valentine's Day when I was growing up. We turned a few into a linzer version by stuffing them with chocolate glaze. Yum!

Dad & W made pizzelles, which always requires wine. :-)  They made 2 kinds: anise & peach schnapps. Both were delicious.

When we got home on Sunday, we did some shoveling & then took Tink out to explore a bit. She's always right at the door when we come in, trying to sneak out. Apparently she didn't mind the wet, cold snow under her paws, because she was wandering around the patio.

Here's what we've been eating in the last week:


  • Black bean, zucchini, & kale enchiladas
  • Green salad
  • Sweet potato & bean chili with Popcorners dipping chips
  • Green salad

  • Tortilla pizzas - brown rice tortillas topped with bbq sauce, onions, mushrooms, zucchini, & raw milk smoked cheddar cheese
  • Green salad
  • Brown rice fusilli with kale, white beans, onions, & mushrooms

  • Leftovers
  • Green salad
