We had a mountain of broccoli for dinner the other night. Just kidding. It was actually part of a delicious Broccoli CashewTeriyaki Stir Fry from Dreena Burton's Eat, Drink and be Vegan. It's a favorite in our house.
We also had Sunny Pineapple Yogurt Cake with Orange Glaze. It is also from the same cookbook. It is so moist and delicious and citrus-y...my kind of dessert. The best part is it only has three tablespoons of oil in the entire cake. Honestly!
We had a snow day today. Actually I should call it an inclement weather day since they cancelled school because of the freezing rain. My boys were very excited, they weren't expecting a day off. While they were very busy upstairs I threw together some scones. These raspberry chocolate chip scones have become a favorite with most of us. I can't quite convince my middle son to try them. He did ask what kind of "cookies" these were. Once I said "scone" he turned and walked away. If only he'd try them...
I couldn't get a good picture of the snow melting and dripping off of the roof of our house, but in this one you can see the grass is showing in our backyard.
|My husband clears a path for the dog...he's a Lhasa Apso and his belly is probably only 6 inches off of the ground.|
Our high temperature today was a balmy 43. I wonder if that is a record. It really did feel warm compared to our single-digit temperatures we had last week.
Snow started to fall around the dinner hour and it hasn't stopped yet. We shall see if there is school tomorrow.
Good night all.
