Today is cold.
-2 degrees without windchill cold. I was originally writing 0 degrees, by the way, until my father walked through the door and said it was actually 2 degrees colder than 0. I had made a promise to get out and hit the slopes this morning, my last day in the mountains, but I’m starting to regret my word.
We’ve decided to wait it out a bit and let the sun warm up the valley, so hopefully we will make it out and not freeze. Luckily my sister Kendra and I are heading to Atlanta first thing tomorrow morning, so we’ll have a chance to defrost down there if all else fails.
You remember Baby Ryleigh? Well, it’s her very first birthday on Saturday, and Kendra and I are going down to see how much that little munchkin has grown in the last 6 months. Kendra and Ryleigh will actually be meeting for the first time, so I’m excited to see them interact.
She can be sassy, you know.
I can’t wait to see how that sass translates into a just-learning-to-walk baby.
But, since we’re not there yet and still surviving -2 degree weather, here’s a little insight to a really wholesome and warming recipe that I’ve been testing for an upcoming class I’m teaching.
Individual baked oatmeal with fruit
These portioned baked oatmeal bites are easy to make, and a fun healthy muffin alternative for kids and adults alike. One batch makes close to 30 “muffins”, they are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts, and freeze so well.
I’m teaching this recipe, along with a few others, later this month at the 14th St. Y down on the Lower East Side. It’s a children/parent cooking class, so keep an eye out for kid-friendly recipes on the blog soon!
Okay off I go, wish me luck out there this morning! I hope I don’t freeze!!
