December 1st came and so did the snow. I knew that there was a possibility of snow today but I did not expect to look out the window this morning and see my van covered in the white stuff. The chill in the air and the beautiful snowflakes falling are just another reminder of the Christmas season that is upon us. This is my kind of winter. Just enough snow to cover everything in a beautiful shimmer of white but still warm enough that you can stand outside and not freeze completely. I did not care for "snowmageddon" last year with several feet of snow. I'll take a little more so that we can make a snowman and that will do it for me.
Our veggie side is sugar snap peas. We are giving the salads a break for the day. Molly really enjoys these sweet and crispy veggies.
Our fruit side is apple slices. These will be a nice accompaniment to the banana bread sandwiches.
We also added a string cheese to add some protein and calcium.
Finally, we have Aldi Pfeffernusse Cookies for Molly's dessert. These cookies are like gingerbread but lighter in texture and flavor. They are chewy and yet have that little crunch from the white icing. YUM!
