Kiss The Cook

It's so cold outside, I'm "forced" to cook dinner at home.  :)

So I am excited for dinner tonight!  I made Portuguese Chicken Soup.  I'm not a GREAT cook, but I'm determined.  It was so much fun.  It smells AMAZING!!!  Here is me documenting the event.

Prep Area

Saute onions, celery and garlic 

Add the rest of the ingredients 

Bring to a boil

Now, I heat up the rolls to serve with it and enjoy the rewards of my hard work.  :)

Winter Storm Q

Thank you, Storm Q!  Today became a "snow day" for everyone in the Arnett house.  The kids had no school, Jen's clinic was closed, Jake was post night call and Nick seems to ALWAYS be here.  :)

So we just HAD to get out in it!  Jake went for a run at 8:00 am, we went to the backyard for some fun.

 The view from our front door.

Yep, Jen is up to her knee in snow.  And it's still falling!!! 

Owen burying himself in snow. 

Face plant, in the softest snow EVER! 

Having fun! 

Not quite snowballs, but still cold. 

Nick is even eating the snow.  Possibly to get through it.

We came inside to warm up, bake cookies, start chili in the crockpot and drink hot chocolate.  Thank you, Storm Q!

I'm BACK!!!!

That's right!  I've been motivated, and now I'm going to try to post more frequently.  We've had a wild few months.  (No move to Nashville, new laptop, new camera, trying to figure out the new get the idea!)  But to move on to the post from today.

We got SNOW!!!  And we are suppose to get more tonight.  In fact, it's 5:00 and they've already canceled school for tomorrow.  :)  So after school today we decided to bundle up "Boston Style" and have some fun.

Owen making snowballs.

Abbey came over to play too. 

I had an eager helper. 

She did more than I thought she would.  But I did finish the driveway. 

Warming up in front of the fire.
