Well we’re having a snow day here in Washington, DC.  As some of you may know, it takes approximately one snowflake to shut DC down!!! Works for me.  We’re expecting approximately 8-12″!  We’ll see.

So to amuse myself, these are the things I’ll be doing today: Drinking tea, watching TV, crocheting and reading The Secret {all of this in bed}, while intermittently snacking on goodies.  I’m going to throughly enjoy my day.

If you’re looking for some comfort food, here’s a great recipe “Baked Ziti with Spinach, Artichokes and Pesto” I found on Pinterest via “Inspired Taste” , one of my favourite food blogs ~ I’m definitely going to try this one.  Here’s the recipe


For an easy snack, here are some easy to make Mini Chocolate-Chip Breakfast Cookies, taken from another of my favourite food blogs “Chocolate Covered Katie“.  Recipe here


If your snowed in, have a lovely and snuggly snow day; and if you’re not, have yourself the most Amazing day!



My Latest Addiction…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on June 14, 2012 at 11:52 am


OMG… who created these things?  My latest addiction is Newton’s Fruit Thins, created by Nabisco, those wonderful people who brought us Fig Newtons.  Now I know some people hate Fig Newtons, but I love them.  Newtons Fruit Thins are these crispy biscuits (cookies in the U.S) that have just the right amount of sweet and a satisfying crunch to them.  I’m loving the Fig and Honey flavour.  You really and truly can’t eat just one.

I came across these goodies at my local supermarket this past weekend, and decided to give them a try. Well… I started out with 2, then had 2 more, then had…. I’ll never tell.  Give them a try, if you like whole wheat biscuits you’ll love these.  I haven’t yet tried the other flavors; which are Blueberry/ Brown Sugar or Cranberry Citrus Oat.  I’m not sure how many variations there are, but they are certainly delicious.

 Happy Thursday, we’re nearly there!
