Uh Oh.

The snow is coming.

I have an entire pan of gooey butter cake sitting in my kitchen.

[Let’s be honest here. We all know I’ve eaten half the pan already.]


I’m all out of greens.

[Secretly this thrills me, since I don’t have any to eat.]


I foresee a lot of this being done.

[And not nearly enough of this.]


And surely way too much of this.

[In fact, I think I’ll get started on this a little early. Like… right now.]


What would be your perfect snowed-in day?

    Perfect snowed-in day:
    pancakes.
    coffee.
    cuddling on the couch with big blankets and movies or bad tv show marathons.

    Baking is exercise. Strength training and cardio. It’s true.

    Seeing posts like this make me wish it would start dumping snow in San Diego. A few years ago we had a “fire week” where everyone got to stay home because of the smoke…but no snowed-in days yet!

    My perfect snowed in day would be sitting in my comfy clothes with my husband and baby. We would be playing games, eating gooey chocolate chip cookies and sipping on hot chocolate

    We’ve had plenty of snow, they just won’t give us the snow day!

    I think you have the formula for a perfect snow day all planned out.

    Mine would be very similar, with a big helping of Eat Live Run’s vanilla cupcakes. Perfection.

    Mine would be where the kids are at a friend’s house or actually go to school instead of being snowed in with me, hehe…..with an endless supply of hot chocolate and homemade pizza that I didn’t have to make myself. Yum.

    We are snowed in here too, but it is not a good day. Still dealing with sick children! Ugh. A PERFECT snowed in day, would be breakfast in bed (that I don’t have to cook or clean up after), coffee (lots of it; with fun flavored creamers), PJ’s, and eating treats that I baked the day before (because a perfect day would mean nothing to do but eat, drink coffee and watch movies).

    Can’t wait to see what the chocolate batter is for!!!

(by which I mean, send some of that snow to state central PA!!)

    I’m in the middle of the city so I live in a 4 block radius of a multitude of friends and a wine store (this was not a coincidence) so it’s always a festival of well spent time off from work. BUT…I have to say, my most favorite feeling is spending the entire day at a friends house, playing in the snow, drinking lots of wine, and then coming back home to a pot of beef stew that I had the motivation to put on 3 hours before I left. This doesn’t happen too often (the food prep coming before the wine) but when it does it’s AMAZEBALLS.

    I’m one of the few that lives in eternal sunny-land and misses the four seasons! Vegas and like climates are for the retired. Snow shoveling is God’s way of changing up your workout routine. Enjoy the miracle of the white: the snow and the pinot grigio grape.

    I agree with Lauren! I live in Ireland and haven’t seen proper seasons in a good few years (since leaving Canada, anyway!). We did manage to have a pretty respectable snowstorm here this winter and I enjoyed every minute of it with cognac and baked goods (…I needed the extra calories to stay warm).

    I’m having a snow day today too! I just made egg-white-oats for breakfast, plan on making lemon pudding cake later on and probably will eat a few leftover Reese’s Christmas trees too.

    My electric blanket is on, covering my legs, I’m on the couch and have my laptop with me. Ahh…the comforts of a snow day! Plus some educational reality tv, LOL!
