Snow Days!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — susanbright @ 5:34 pm

The Friday Morning Bookclub is based in the Baltimore area and that means we are going to have a snow day tomorrow. The first BIG snow of the year is always exciting, especially if you are prewarned and prepared! Off we go to the grocery store to fill our basket with all of our  favorites. In my household, that means we will be having  a turkey dinner. If I am going to be stuck home all day (which I actually look forward to) I am going to have a turkey cooking in my oven as I sit  by the fire reading this month’s book. The only problem is there are only two of us at home to eat it these days. I might just have to recruit some neighbors with big appetites! How do you like to spend your snow days?



  1. We are fortunate that both children made it home for the weekend before the storm hit. So here we are, celebrating a slightly delayed Chanukah together with candles, latkes and presents. Our plans include having a fire in the fireplace, playing board games and drinking hot cocoa with marshmallows. Later there will be some serious cookie baking. I LOVE it!

  2. Happy snow day!!! I can’t believe it… my husband closed our pharmacy today, it’s the second time in 22 years!!!
    Both our kids our home, Josh flew in last night from AZ. We are enjoying some family time together. We also have a fire burning in the fireplace, I made chocolate chip pancakes this morning. Yesterday I went to Blockbusters and rented 5 movies anticipating the big storm. We just watched The Hangover, very funny!!! We too will be playing games, drinking hot chocolate, eating, watching movies, eating, baking cookies, eating, shoveling, eating, reading, did I mention eating. Anyway, enjoy a day of just sitting around, and make sure you look outside throughout the day… it really is beautiful.

  3. After I got over the disappointment of my daughter and son-in-law not being able to make it in from New Jersey, I settled in and decided to make the most of the snow day. My son came home from College Park last night, so my nest isn’t completely empty. I made a big pot of chili (I went a little crazy, and influenced by all the programs I watch on The Food Network, I added a surprise secret ingredient – anyone want to guess what it is?), baked chocolate cheesecake brownies, and for dinner I will be making filet mignons topped with crabmeat! It’s like a party here! (We were supposed to be going to Tio Pepe’s tonight so I’m trying to make up for missing that) My husband and son have been in front of the fire all day watching TV, and I’ve been cooking, reading and watching my dog playing in the snow. Tonight it will be football on TV. It’s nice sometimes to just be forced to stay in.
