Wednesday Woo Hoo~ The Day of The Blizzard That Never Happened *PLUS RECIPES*

I am ready for Winter to be over with, however I did love Sunday.  We were under a Blizzard Warning, so we prepared to have a warm day inside.  WOO HOO!  We were going to have Taj all day too.  We have not seen him for one week and one day, but who is counting?!

Our day started with a big hot breakfast.

 Pancakes and Ship Wreck (to others it is also known as Skillet Breakfast.)
Add a small amount of Olive Oil to the pan.  
Add Potato O'Brien and cooked sausage to the pan.  
Cook until potatoes are brown (about 7 minutes)
Push the sausage and potatoes to one side of the skillet and add the scrabbled eggs to the other side.
(TIP:  When scrambling several eggs, scramble one egg prior to adding the next egg.
This will whisk the eggs more thoroughly.)

Once the egg is cooked (scrambled) mix the egg and potato and sausage together.
Most of the time I add cheese as well, but did not this day. 
 Of course we had to have coffee as well.
What a great day to start a blustery day.
 I top my Ship Wreck with some of our canned salsa.  Yumo!
 After our breakfast we played upstairs (the main floor) for awhile.  We played with Sully
 I just love him peeking at me in this picture!
 He played with his Uncles.  Playing with the trucks is one of his favorite things at our house.

For lunch we had left overs.  The children had left over Taco Bake.  You can find the recipe by clicking here.  Todd and I had left over  Mexican Crock Pot Chicken.  This is one of our favorites.  You can eat it on a bed of Romaine Lettuce or a fajita shell, or a tortilla shell.  I used low carb tortilla shell this time.  
 Mexican Crock Pot Chicken

  • 3 chicken skinless and boneless chicken breast
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies (drain the juice)
  • 1 can of black beans (do not drain)
  • 1 can of chili beans (do not drain)
  • 1 package of Taco Seasoning
  • 1 can of black olives (drain the juice)
  • 1 can of chopped green chilies
  1.  Place the chicken at the bottom of the crock pot.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order listed and do not mix.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. Once cooked, shred the chicken with two forks. (The chicken is tender and moist.)
  5. Stir well.
You can also serve this with chips if you wish as well.

The boys had a snack cake for dessert.  Taj thought it would be fun to wear his frosting.  This kid cracks me up.

After lunch we went downstairs to our main living room and built a fire.  We bought four bundles of wood to be prepared for our day of indoors.
We watched videos and took a nap.  Papa was the first to fall asleep.
 Then Taj snuggled into his Papa. 
 After our nap, we watched more videos and played with the trucks near the fire.  Until I had to go upstairs to cook dinner.  Matthew and Hannah stopped by.  It was snowing a little and the winds were picking up.  They stayed for dinner.  Kielbasa Sausage, onions, and potatoes.  I was going to try a new recipe but I forgot to add the different spices because I was enjoying my conversation with Hannah.  I really like this girl.
 After dinner the two left and Kera arrived.  She ate dinner and shared how her class is going.  She completed her first week.  She has decided to go back to school to get her massage therapy license to add to her clientele and get more appointments at the spa where she works. 

Our Blizzard thankfully did not produce a lot of snow.  Hardly any, but the wind did howl and the temperatures did drop.  What a wonderful day Todd and I had!  Woo Hoo!
