In the Peculiar household it seems January 3rd is a day for snowshoeing. We went once last year - on the exact same day. It stands to reason. It's a new year. We're feeling frisky. We're ready to take on the world. And take it on we did. The family hiked 4.1 miles with a very long uphill haul near the end of our journey. Little Sis, who just turned six, hiked the entire distance all on her own. Of course we were treated to a touch of whining and a pinch of moaning but hey - she's six!

Three hours stomping through the snow works up an appetite. Tonight it's breakfast for dinner. For the kids - bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and toast. For the adults - Rosti Casserole with Baked Eggs. Fresh eggs. From our very own chickens. Have I told you lately that I love our chickens?

And now it's time to take the food from the oven. I hope you all had a weekend as wonderful as we did! This has been an excellent start to 2010!
