My Week in Pictures

Mixed green salad with avocado, eggs and sweet onion vinaigrette 

Chicken pot pie 

Baked eggs with kale and pepperoni

A backyard visit from finches on a cold, but sunny winter day

Love, love, love my plain oatmeal with sliced bananas, sprinkled with cinnamon

Yesterday evening...the snow storm begins...

Nothing like chili on a cold, stormy night (topped with cheddar, sour cream, green onion and cilantro)

...and a cozy, bright fire to warm up the night.

A peek out the front door this morning...

and a view of our backyard from our upstairs window

It continues to snow as I write this post.  It's a snow day for us and that means NO SCHOOL!  The girls are still sleeping.  I don't know how they can sleep through the noise of the snow-blowers in our neighborhood.  

Is it snowing where you are?  I know many parts of Canada and the USA are experiencing or expecting winter storms today and tomorrow.  I hope that no matter where you are you are, you are warm and cozy.  Happy Friday...have a safe and happy weekend!


  1. How beautiful it is to look at all your pictures. That chilli is making me hungry:)
    Thanks for sharing!
    Love you!

  2. brrrrr..stay warm! All of the comfort foods on your weekly menu look delicious! Our kitty loves to sit hearth-side when a fire is going, also...xo

  3. Hi :) You made Chicken Pot Pie. I made it last year and it turned out, but I lost the recipe lol and that oatmeal in a mug looks so cute. Never tried it with bananas.

    Everything looks so yummy! Have a cozy evening <3

    Denise, where the storm had forgotten to give us as much snow as I wanted! lol

  4. I haven't seen the fireplace yet---how cozy wonderful it is!!! I especially love the salad with the chopped eggs....there is something about a hard-boiled egg that is so filling to me....

    Chickens rock!!! Speaking is Henrietta???

    Love you!!

  5. I think I must not read your blog when I'm hungry! LOL! My stomach is growling at the sight of these yummy dishes! xoxo...Karen
