Maryland has had barely any snow at all this year. In fact, we have had super mild weather all winter and I’ve even been able to do a few outside runs on 70 degree days. So yeah, we are pretty spoiled.
When the weather forecast started calling for snow… I figured I’d just wait and see.
To be honest, I could really use a good snow day. Just a day or two that I HAVE to stay home would be fantastic. It’s the perfect excuse to snuggle up with Jack on a weekday, watch a few movies and bake. Something about a snow day just lights my inner Betty Crocker, because I get all twitchy and need to bake something. Usually it’s some type of dessert, like chocolate chip cookies.
Today, I got my snow day.
Working for a University totally has its perks, because they called it nice and early and announced yesterday that the school would be closed today. So all day I get to stay in my pajamas and snuggle.
And bake. Of course. I started a beef stew in the crock pot about an hour ago and my grandma’s recipe for zucchini bread is in the oven right now. I’m working on my fitness again, so I’m trying not to get too crazy…but chocolate chip cookies might be on the agenda for this afternoon.
Yup, I love a good snow day.
Do you bake on snow days? What is your favorite snow day treat to make?
