Snowed In

I don't know what to tell you, but I love winter. It's my favorite time of year.  And snow!  Well, I am crazy about the fluffy white stuff.  It's not convenient when you live in a major metro area esp. the DMV.  I loved it when I lived in  rural southern VA.  Lots of pristine fields of white.  My mom would pop corn and make hot chocolate for us.  She'd use real milk and we'd have butter for the popcorn.  It was lots of cozy evenings.  So, what do I do when it snows?  Well, I cook and bake.  I've made roast beef, baked potatoes and corn. We used some of the leftover potatoes for home fries w/onions and bacon this morning.  I've made the first batch of cookie dough.  It's a chocolate dough that will get two different fillings. I've got coconut and peanut fillings chilling in the fridge. Our next door neighbors will test them out later. 

You see, I want to have my own cookie business one day.  What better time to start working on such a thing as when you're snowed in?  So, that's what I'm gonna do.  What do you do when you're snowed in?

When I'm snowed in (which doesn't happen often) I like cuddling up with a good book or playing games with the kids (inside or outside). These are great family times. I just like it better if I still have electricity and heat.
