I woke up yesterday to a winter wonderland outside of my apartment. I loved it! Snow Snow Snow! The streets in DC were empty, peaceful and white. I decided to spend my day locked up in my apartment enjoying some much needed rest. After cleaning my apartment from top to bottom, reading my piles of magazines and catching up on much needed DVR, I ventured outside to the store.
I grew up with a lot of snow days off from school. WV had a lot of snow in the mountains. I had the desire to run and jump through the snow on the way to the grocery store...and I did. There is something about the snowy weather that made me feel like a kid again.
What else is better then having some champagne, Christmas Tree lit and inviting a good girlfriend over for dinner and a movie. I made Cerys and I Christmas cocktails (St. Germaine, Cranberry Juice and Prosecco). We dined on yummy comforting Chicken Noodle Soup and watched UP (what a cute movie!).
Chicken Noodle Soup, so easy. I created my own recipe by sauteing garlic, onions, carrots, tomatoes, celery, fresh thyme, salt and pepper and olive oil. I went the easier route and used boxed vegetable broth and sliced chicken breasts. My apartment smelled delightful and it was warming and perfect for a nice winter day.
It was a wonderful snow day! Today the sun is out, the snow looks like a white snowy delight. I love it! Snow, winter, the holidays! Happy Winter!
