This time, in anticipation of yet more snow (ugh), I’ve stocked the pantry and fridge with all the makings for comfort foods. Tonight, we’re having pot roast, mashed potatoes and rolls. Tomorrow it’s turkey, stuffing, broccoli casserole and cabbage. Also picked up a bottle of Chocovine. Am calling it my emergency ration.
As for keeping the kids entertained: Obviously, I’ll be forced at some point to play in the snow. Again, I’m the fun, summer parent. I like sunshine, hanging out at the pool and hitting our state parks. Snow? Meh. I don’t like being cold AND wet.
But I also bought their Valentine’s Day cards for school. That should keep them busy for awhile. We’ll also be making chocolate-chip cookies and drinking hot chocolate.
So — what are your plans for survival?
