An "after holiday" family dinner at our home sweet home
My parents playing with yo yo's after dinner.
A peek-a-boo out our bedroom window
Our home adorned for the season
Winter is the perfect time to bring life inside!
And what is life without good food? I am a five -senses girl! I take it all in, especially the gift of taste.
Here is a sample of some of our wintery meals, from left to right: candied bacon brussel sprouts, creamy mushroom soup, one pot Mexican bake, black bean quinoa, roasted pears, veggie quesadillas.
Girls' late night party snacks...
This mushroom garlic quinoa is SO GOOD, one of my favorites!
This winter salad sends ALL of the cozy winter scents into the air! Cinnamon, oranges, cranberries. Perfection. In saucepan cook a bag of cranberries over med heat. Stir in a 1/3 cup orange juice, a zip or two of mountain dew if desired, and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Add orange zest, cinnamon stick, and some tangerines. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until flavors are combined. Enjoy!
My favorite chicken noodle soup
with homemade honey wheat bread.
For all of your sick days.
And another Feel Better Remedy: Dissolve a white peppermint into boiling water. Stir in honey and fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Stuffed butternut squash for a wintery dinner!
All things fresh.
White chicken chili soup
mine is a variation of this one
I prepare my chicken differently and change some seasonings...
Oh yes, we have a puppy! Three boys need a dog and we finally found a solution for allergies. Basil is the star of our home now.
Our winter pup
We store his giant bone in the BBQ grill.
I think he figured it out.
Weekend truck rides!
Many cozy moments...
baths of course
blankets, boys, board games
His and hers hot drinks
I hope you had a lot of
moments this winter!
Seasons are my favorite.
This is know.
