...it did snow! All day yesterday we listened to the predictions of a storm that was headed our way. Destined to bring us approximately 5-7 inches of snow. But when 9:30 rolled around and not a flake had fallen, I called it a loss and went to bed.
Turns out they were right! We got about 6 inches, the most I have ever seen here.
I bundled up tight and headed out doors.
I went to check on the animals~
That's strange... looking in the chicken run... something is missing? Oh yeah, shouldn't there be chickens out here!
Ms. Honey ~ "Who are you kidding, we're not going out in this stuff. I'll be able up to my NECK!"
Me ~ "Good grief! Bunch of babies."
So, I cleared the area of the offending snow, threw out a little scratch and finally coaxed the ladies and gentlemen into wandering beyond the coop door. By the way, it's amazing how heavy those fluffy white flakes get after the 50th shovel full.
Only one thing left to do... take a crazy fast ride down the hill on the sleds. But first we need a hot hearty breakfast. Something that will warm you from the inside...
Cheddar & Cracked Pepper Grits
2 cups boiling salted water
1/2 cup yellow corn grits
1/2 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese
As many cranks of the pepper mill as you please
Slowly add grits to boiling water. Reduce heat to medium. Stir constantly until grits begin to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Texture should be smooth and creamy, not runny or clumpy. Season with fresh cracked pepper. ~ Enjoy
