We've had SOME snow lately, which is pretty and fun, but also cold and lots of work to shovel. My kids always want a white Christmas though, and I don't think they will be disappointed this year. Even though I know I should be eating more salads, the freezing weather makes me crave steamy hot comfort foods. How about you? Do you eat as many salads in the winter as in the summer? Even though it sounds wonderful to live in a place that's warm, year a round, I do think I'd miss the changing of the seasons...maybe. 😛
I did some wrapping for Christmas today, but I have as yet, not sent out a single Christmas card. I feel like my list for cards gets shorter every year, and really with social media, I don't feel the need as much to send physical cards out to as many, as I did years ago. Do you feel the same way?
If you’d like some ideas for earlier in the day:
(Any combination of the following)
Egg whites and spinach (hubby’s choice)
Baked eggs and cheese casserole
Toasted peanut butter & banana sandwich
Coconut Quinoa Granola
(We like to add fruit and/or carrots to any of these “entrees”)
Pasta (my kids love it)
Macaroni and cheese
Vegetarian corn dogs
Hot dogs (We like Hebrew National)
Chicken, turkey or ham sandwiches
Graham crackers and milk
Peanut butter and fluff sandwiches
Whole wheat toast
Yogurt or cheese sticks, crackers
