What a week....

It has been a busy week around here.  This past week we got the Blizzard that pretty much the rest of the US got too.  We had about 18 inches of snow.  That is more than I ever remember having in my lifetime.  I was off of work Tuesday and Wednesday.  I took Tuesday off because I wasn't going to chance not getting home from work.  But on my days off I did a lot of cooking and tried out some new recipes that were pretty yummy.

THe Hubby and Kuba ready to start scooping

Jeff dug a path to the front door- through the 3 foot drift
Kuba loved playing in the snow until he got cold and then he was ready to go back inside.

We made a call to our friend Nate, who came and dug us out!  THANK YOU NATE!
While Jeff was working outside, I made a cheery pie.  I also made a roast to make enchiladas, which were soooo good!  I also made a venison roll with some bread and it was also very good.  I'm making it  a goal to try new recipes that I have not tried before.  We have tried about 5-7 new recipes in the last week, and luckily they have all been good.  I just found a recipe for beef and broccoli stir fry and I cannot wait to try it out.  I love to go to Chinese places and order that.  Hopefully we'll be trying that in the next week or so.

This weekend marks the SuperBowl, I mean Good Commerical's on TV!  The Chicago Bears should be playing, but since they aren't we are going to root against the Green Bay Packers.  Funny story- I take Interstate 39 to/from work- the last few days I have seen lots of Packer vehicles traveling south.  Last night I saw a bright yellow van with a slice of cheese on top of it.  Really?  Are they that crazy about the Packers?  I assumed they were headed to the SuperBowl, but if it were me, I would not be caught in a van like that!  SOOO GOO STEELERS!

Hopefully this coming week I'll be a little more on top of posting- Next weekend is a big weekend- My Aunt & Uncle are coming home from New Hampshire and my big brother turns 30!
