This past weekend our family had so much fun spending time together.
It was a cold weekend full of lots of ice and snow. Church was canceled so we just hunkered down together and enjoyed our time inside.
We also enjoyed a bit of time outside playing in the snow and sledding down a neighbor's drive way. Obviously Annie and I didn't stay outside near as long as Eli and Luke but it was fun to all go out there for a little bit.
On Saturday night Eli, Luke and I stayed up late in the living room, piled up on the couch watching television. It was a rare moment because we are usually in bed early getting ready for church the next day.
Luke and I later recalled how we both had similar thoughts about how Eli is turning into a big boy. For some reason in that simple moment of couches and blankets and tv movies the same thought ocurred to us both.
It was a wonderful weekend. It was nice to slow down and spend time snowed in together.
We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow, then we should head into spring. I absolutely love snowy days and the cooler weather, but it's March now, after this last snow I'll be ready for Spring!
Meals Last week:
Monday: Tomato Basil Soup:
This is a recipe I found on Pinterest several years ago and it has never failed me. It's a favorite around here on a cold night.
Tuesday: Baked Potatoes
I had some baked potatoes in our pantry I wanted to use before they went bad, so I cooked them in the corckpot and then made up some taco meat and we had some taco baked potatoes. Have you ever cooked your potatoes in the crock pot? I recently tried it and won't do it any other way. So easy!
Wednesday: We ended up having a busy night so we just picked around the kitchen and found stuff to eat.
Thursday: Skinny Taste Taco Chili
Another Skinny Taste winner. I really didn't intend to make this on this day, but early on I decided I wanted a crock pot meal so I went online and found this one and we had all the ingredients. It was great!
Friday: Buffalo Mac n Cheese
I love this meal. Really I just love anything buffalo related. This recipe is great because it's not too spicy so everybody enjoys it and then I had all my extra buffalo sauce to my own serving. Mama likes it hot!
Going into this week (well really we are almost midway through it) I am trying to refrain from any chili type recipes. I find I am making A LOT of chili and I'm getting really sick of it. I just think they are so easy to throw together! So here's to maybe something a little different for dinner this week!
