Snap Shot Sunday ~ Record Breaking Snow Fall in Washington DC!

Can you believe it!

I finally make the move further south (where Keith has been working for the past 5 years) truly thinking I won't be seeing anymore major snow storms...

Boy - was I ever so wrong!

It started late Friday night and hasn't stopped! There are still snow flakes flying around here.

Here are a few photos taken on Saturday just to prove how much snow we got...

(this photo was taken from our front porch - just seeing those trees all covered in snow makes this season all that more special)

028
(oh our Annabelle - she just loved playing in the snow)

025
(and there they are - our two most precious gifts!)

026
(and while the kiddos were playing - poor Keith had all that shoveling to do...)

And I bet you are all wondering what I was doing (while everyone else was outside)...

Why I cooking!

Making one of the family's favorite dishes - Sausage & Peppers!

And having all this snow truly made it a day worth staying inside, enjoying a few good movies with some amazing cocktails & some home cooked Italian food!

(my sausage & peppers cooking in the crock pot)

and...

Seeing how the peppers at the market on Friday we just so big-ripe-and-beautiful, I just couldn't resist purchasing a few too many. So what's a girl to do with all those extra peppers...

why make some Home Made Sauce which not only included those so big-ripe-and-beautiful peppers but also some chopped onions, minced garlic, and a few dashes of salt & pepper...

(yummo!)

I guess you can say we have been eating very well since yesterday and I am just loving it! I am exactly where I want to be...in my beautiful home ~ with my blessing of a family ~ and some wonderful home cooked Italian food!



Ni Hao Y'all

I wished we lived closer, I would have come over to help shovel snow and then eat your food!

We had our first big snow yesterday(not as much as yours) and it really put me in the spirit. Looking at the sausage and peppers has made my mouth water. Yummy!

Looks like we live in the same neck of the woods! We ended up with 22 inches, sore backs from shoveling and full bellies from soup. Stay warm!

I hope you guys enjoy a very MERRY Christmas this year, Shelly :)
