Friday night we went out to a different restaurant for dinner as a family and we had the best fries ever.  Now keep in mind they were the worst fries for health because I believe they were fried twice-so crispy! It was nice to be out and about with our son since he returned to his campus today.

Lots of laundry was done by the laundry fairy so our son could pack as many clean clothes as possible. Starting Monday I am back to two to three loads a week.  I am not complaining since the fairy and I are one person.  We also went through the cupboards and stocked up on some snacks for the dorm.  Nothing like shopping at home.

Saturday brought a beautiful fantastic snow storm.  It was perfect-five inches of snow came tumbling down and we did not lose power.  What could possibly be better?  Because of the snow I decided to make apple raisin muffins from my Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook. Check out their website, they have quite a bit of recipes that look yummy.

Today after church I made sure nothing was left behind from our traveler.  It's so quiet now.  I love when the kids are home and I love when it is just the two of us......oh and Frodo :)

  1. I think you got more snow than we did!

    It's always fun to try new restaurants. Those muffins look delicious.

    Only a couple of months until Spring Break, right? :)

  2. 2-3 loads a week. Wow, just wow!

    Sometimes you need the best fries ever. It makes the other food taste better.

    Thanks for the cookbook recommendation. In exchange, I will tell you that these cookies were a big hit http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/lemon-sugar-cookies/print/

  3. I am always amazed at the amount of towels I suddenly seem to have once elder son returns to university. Twice fried chips are wonderful - as are family meals out. Enjoy your empty nest for a while. xxx

  4. Snow and french fries....you are truly blessed! :)
    Thanks for the web link, I haven't heard of this site and I have a feeling I'm going to love it!

  5. You had me chuckling with the laundry fairy and shopping at home...reminds me of my college days (that was a while ago). Your muffins look delicious!

  6. those muffins looks sooooooooo good!! and i bet you had a fire in the fireplace....so cozy!

    I'm sure the quiet is somewhat bittersweet. You were so lucky to have the "company" for as long as you did!!!

  7. Yum to the muffins! I'm looking forward to less laundry...one of these days :-)

  8. we just got a bunch of ice. blech!

    there is something about these kind of days that make you want to head into the kitchen.

    over the last two days I've made banana bread, roasted a chicken and made two kinds of soup.

    that's what an ice storm and a sick girlie gets you!

  9. Those muffins look divine! Glad you got some snow!

  10. everything sounds so so great karen, except for the leaving part. but it is nice, even if quiet, to have less. just less of everything.
    enjoy the snow and thank you for the link!

  11. those muffins look good! and french fries are so bad but so good...you have to indulge on occasion ;-)

  12. Oh those muffins look YUM!! And the laundry, yes 2-3 loads a week sounds about right--too bad I never keep up with it during the week!!! I end up having to do 2-3 loads in a day. Oh well, as long as we aren't walking around stinky or clothes-less.


  13. It sounds like you had a very nice weekend. I enjoyed watching the snow fall on Saturday, too.

    Those muffins sure look yummy!
