How to Spend a Winter's Day

# 1 - Sleep in late but get up before the kids
#2 - Have ghetto* mochas or lattes with the hubbie
#3 - Make rosemary red potatoes and scrambled eggs
#4 - Wake children and eat breakfast
#5 - Pack five peanut butter sandwiches, two sliced apples, oranges and pretzels
#6 - Fill camelback with water
#7 - Have kids scurry about for their winter clothes
#8 - Load everyone up in the car
#9 - Buy a winter snow pass ($22.00)
#10 - Go snoweshoing!
#11 - Come home and warm up with hot tea/OJ and rum (mmmm!)
#12 - Feed the family homebaked mac and cheese
and finally ....

Confiscate the remote from the sleeping husband and switch from "the game" to HGTV - he'll never know!


I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Ghetto Mochas:
* Heat milk, put it in a french press coffee maker and froth, mix with coffee, add chocolate as desired.

Lovely - and ambitious. My winter days often involve never leaving the house! I never thought of frothing milk with my beloved french press - I'll be trying that later. Stay warm.

your list sounded like a wonderful 24 hours Shalet!

Shalet, I love your way to spend a winter day. It's much more interesting than mine!

i love the ghetto mochas idea. we actually used to have a specific tool for that purpose. it was just like a french press but way smaller. unfortunatly it got dropped and we were never able to find another one.
i never thought of actually doing it in the french press though. great idea.

Mmmmm...ghetto Dad used to make them. He didn't call them that but they were DELICIOUS.

Hmmm, wasn't the colts/chargers game was it? :D
