Snow-ish Saturday

It's not a waffle!
But rather a toasted everything bagel with Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese, and a snowscape in the background.  You might have heard - another big storm landed today (expectations between 8 - 14 inches). Remy's groomer cancelled his appointment, many stores closed, and people cleared shelves at the market like it was Armageddon.  Ridiculous.  
Coffee in a super cute mug (thanks, Sarah!) with more snowscape.
It was supposed to snow until 11pm tonight, but stopped by 5pm.  The ground is so warm that the seven inches we did receive have melted down to three and a half.  At least my house is clean, and Remy enjoyed the fact that we hung out all day. (P.S.  My apologies as this storm now barrels out of Colorado and pummels the Central Time Zone next.)

Something new for lunch:


Served with grits.

Inspired by Miss Rachel, I made spinach with shallots cooked in veggie broth and sprinkled with nooch.  Small potato wedges.

Look what arrived in the post:
My first issue from the lovely Maud!  You are so talented, and I absolutely love it!

See you tomorrow!

  1. Maud's zines are awesome! I can imagine that you enjoyed it.

    That's a lot of snow to melt right away. Does it usually stick around for a while or melt within a few days? I always found it ridiculous that people go crazy at the stores before storms. I mean, we live in areas that get storms, so shouldn't everyone be used to it? Besides, who doesn't have at least some food in their house? It's not like we've ever been snowed in for more than a day.....

    Great looking eats. The greens & grits sound like a great combo. :)

    1. It usually melts pretty quickly, unless it is in the shade or in a north facing area - then it sticks around until the ground is warmer.

      People are ridiculous! Must be a hibernation inclination thing. I wonder if people who live in Alaska are constantly clearing shelves, or have they calmed down?

  2. Yikes, that's a lot of snow!! I know all too well that it looks pretty but is indeed a giant pain in the ass. I think you appreciate this more than most, especially since you have seen how ridiculous people get when there is a possibility of snow. Check out this video when you get a chance!

    Yay for the mug!! It photographed really nicely :) The snow looks pretty in the background too. You know I'm digging that bagel too. Yum! The kale salad looks great and your roasted potatoes look perfect! Love all of the green you had yesterday!

    I received that issue as well! All of the ones I've read so far have been great (4 so far) and I really enjoyed this latest issue! She's so talented!

    1. I will definitely check out the video as soon as I finish replying to the comments!

      It makes one think - do people not ever go grocery shopping? Is it more popular to do small trips more frequently? We should conduct a science experiment!

      The mug is fantastic! So pretty! It had been a while since I enjoyed a bagel. The salad was pretty good, too many sesame seeds but it has inspired me in the make-your-own-dressing department!

    2. Ha ha! "I gotta get the bread and milk!" That is exactly the type of panic I imagine most pre-storm shoppers experience. ;)

  3. Aw, yr sweet Ingrid. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
    That mug is gorgeous! It's nice to have a fun mug to brighten up a snowy day. Snow definitely makes for a hassle but at least it was a weekend and you didn't need to get to work. That's the worst when people freak out.
    The meals all look great but it's especially commendable that WF is making prepared cashew dressing! That's so cool. It looks great and I'm thinking maybe I should start preparing grits too...
    Oh and the potato wedges! They look perfect.

    1. I just might need to order a few back issues, to continue the enjoyment! :)

      I actually would have preferred a snow day! Ha ha! Now I just had a short weekend. Oh well!

      I was quite surprised about the salad, and how cheap it was ($2). Pretty good, and now I'll make my own dressing to see if it is just as good.

  4. That's pretty interesting that they put Orange Juice in the Kale Salad. Too bad they skimped on the Sesame Seeds. Give Remy some tummy scratches from me.

    1. Ha ha! Too many sesame seeds would be my only complaint. I will definitely give Remy a few tummy scratches for you!

  5. Glad you tried spinach with shallots (isn't it good?!). Thanks for the shout-out.
