Everyday Life and Menu Plan (2.13.17)

Since we moved to Seattle over a decade ago, I have never found myself perturbed by the rain. In fact, as a bookish person that tends toward being an introvert, I kinda like it! But, when we have a sunny day after a spell of rain, I'm more aware of how it affects my mood and enjoy it more. Today was one of those random beautiful midwinter days and we took advantage of it, strolling around a favorite park.

It's kind of crazy to think that just a week ago we were treated to a SECOND snow day this winter! The first one came before Christmas and was on a Friday. This one arrived on a Monday, and it was another lovely extension of the weekend.
It was followed up by a not so fun day off of school because of icy roads, and the snow was mostly gone, so the kids were feeling a little pent up. And this week we have midwinter break, and ANOTHER three day week. Serenity now...

Update on the Gimme Some Oven Moo Shu Chicken we tried last week: it was GOOOOOD. 
Looking forward to trying The Garlic Diaries recipes this week!
As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie, and now Beth Fish Reads weekend cooking - be sure to check out all the great weekly food inspiration!


  1. Oh that Moo Shu Chicken looks good. I can't believe how much snow you guys got this year! It's been a long time since I lived in the Pacific Northwest, but the rain never bothered me either.
