Some of you may have heard about our "snow" here in the south this past week.
I said it that way because it is our typical yearly event (2-4") that melts by the end of the day! LOLBut it has been "cold" (said that way b/c it is for us!) here; and besides my mittens keeping me warm lots of yummy teas have
My double brew of white pomegranate and peppermint tea in my new fav mug. I am getting ready to upgrade to some Teavana!

and favorite comfort foods
My good ole winter standby of grilled cheese on whole grain bread (lil crisp haha) and tomato basil soup!

And weekend breakfasts has consisted of
Scramble egg whites with cheese and more whole grain bread with sugar free raspberry jam (so y'all know what I ate this Sunday morning!)

And one of my girlfriends knows how much I lurve lurve LURVE Garrett's popcorn (you can only get in Chicago). So on New Years Day she brought me a bag back from her layover there
That barely made it thru the day!!! Lurve my cheese and caramel mix snack!
It didn't stand a chance and was demolished and devoured within 24 hours! LOL

My lips and fingers could not even lie! ;op

Lawd help me!! :oD My body still has yet to recover from all of my holiday eating....sigh Haha

    Mmmm... grilled cheese... mmmmm...

    LOL at your snow! We had 3 ft. in December and before it had even had a chance to melt, we got another 4" today. Just as I was starting to see green patches in the lawn. My Scottish Granny would have a fit at you making a 'dippy' in a mug, instead of tea in a proper teapot -- 'sacreligious' -- as she would say :)

    Jeanine said...
