Good morning! Today finds our little lake home nestled in a winter wonderland. I took the above pictures Saturday afternoon before the impending storm arrived. And the following I took this morning after the storm moved through and left behind a beautiful, silent scene for us to enjoy.
I am sure many of you saw wintery weather too. I hope you are safe and sound and cozy as well. Our Steelers began their game last night with a valiant effort against a superior team who deserved a win. Next year begins a new chapter in the Steeler franchise, and we are waiting to see who our new quarterback will be.
Last night before the game, all my people were here together for the first time in a few weeks, and it was wonderful! I made some homemade pizza, we played some cards, and we had some laughs. Have you ever made homemade pizza sauce? It is easy and so much better than store-bought. Just add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil to a pot with freshly minced garlic cloves. Let that simmer on low for a few minutes, then add a big can of crushed tomatoes and a tiny can of tomato paste. Then throw in some sugar to taste, and a teaspoon of dried oregano, basil, some fresh parsley, and some fresh ground pepper. I let that simmer while I prepare the dough for about a half-hour. That's it!
Today will be quiet. Flynn and I will do school, and I have some laundry to finish. I am making tilapia and rice for dinner. The Bachelor isn't on tonight because of football, so I will have to find something else to watch before bed. Any suggestions?
Have a relaxing day, my friends.
Thanks for visiting.
