I hope everyone has managed to shovel themselves out this morning. I know I had a hell of a time yesterday. Luckily my upstairs neighbor plows our driveway so I'm lucky in that respect, but a plow can only do so much and get so close to my car, so it took a good chunk of time trying to get the very heavy snow away from my tires enough to get the car out.
These were the scenes out my front door yesterday morning when I finally got out of bed at 10am. What good is a snow day if you can't sleep in???
When all was said and done we got about 16-18 inches of snow. After finally getting my car out and taking a nice long hot shower to get the cold out of my bones, it was time for lunch!
Lunch was the lunch of champions. An egg and cheese sandwich on a whole wheat english muffins with a side of sauteed brussel sprouts.
Dinner was pork tenderloin from Trader Joe's. The pork comes preseasoned, all that has to be done is to sear it and bake it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350.
I know I've said this before, but it bears repeating...Trader Joe's is literally the best store on earth. They make a ton of convenience foods that make my life a thousand times easier. On the side of this delicious pork tenderloin, I made smashed red potatoes (with butter and cream because I was feeling a little naughty, wink wink) and steamed up some broccoli and cauliflower for both of us.
A quick simple easy meal. I actually felt a bit guilty because I had all day to whip up a gourmet culinary masterpiece since I was off, but the laziness won out and I spent the day on the couch catching up on my DVR and cuddling with this girl.
How much snow did you get? Did you have a snow day?
