Fun with Food on a Snowy Day
We've had horribly bitter cold along with several inches of snow the past few days.
It is rare to see it pile up near the big arched window...the wind must have really been whipping it around.
You can see we have several inches with more predicted to arrive tomorrow.
I'm tired of it already!
It is the dark, dreary days that get to me the most.
No sun to be able to take decent photos either!
However, there IS one ray of sunshine that continues to brighten our days.....
my granddaughter, Sweet Caroline!
She is so much fun & so full of laughter & energy...
never stops dancing, tumbling, flipping or talking!
She always requests the same thing for breakfast, whenever she sleeps overnight...pancakes & bacon.
We've made bunnies....
we've made teddy bears...or Mickey Mouse, whichever that was supposed to be!
We've decorated waffles in Keyon colors (her brother's college)
We even made Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. I think Rudolf has a cold!! LOL
This Sunday, while she visited us, we made a double layer chocolate cake together, for her to take home to her Dad (an OSU grad) for dessert when Ohio State University wins the National Championship on Monday night!
That chocolate candy heart with the peanut butter & green buckeye tree leaves, is supposed to represent a "buckeye"...popular candy confection here in Ohio
which mimics the nuts from our state tree & also OSU's mascot, Brutus Buckeye, too.
Click the hotlink for a printable RECIPE on how to make the candy.
I will be joining Michael Lee West, at Rattlebridge Farm for her Foodie Friday party this week. Thanks for hosting, ML & thank YOU for dropping by The Gazebo House today.
(I hope you're not dizzy or seasick from seeing all the different photo frames...I was playing with PicMonkey editing)
