It was so cold this morning, I had to wear long underwear when I took Georgie out for her walk. UNACCEPTABLE. I was all frosty when I got back so I made myself a nice breakfast to warm myself up.
When Taylor got back he was equally freezy so I simmered up some cinnamon apple cider for him. I broke up my cinnamon stick and had to strain all the little pieces with the half-teaball I use for sifting small amounts of icing sugar. I do NOT recommend doing this btw- the half-teaball has no handle so I had to pinch it between my fingers, which got thoroughly steamed. You (I) should definitely use a larger sieve for this.
The daycare kids almost always want the same thing for morning snack (which is really easy so I can’t complain): Cheerios and penguins!
The penguins are cheese crackers, like goldfish but not as expensive, and the kids are OBSESSED with them. I use whole wheat crackers & multi grain Cheerios to make this a little more nutritional. I mix them together and keep a jar of them in the kitchen, which usually lasts all week, until Friday afternoons when Sym and her friends eat everything in the house.
This picture is from last night, but here’s another of my two favorite warming items, they are both very fuzzy and warm.
I can’t get over how much fluffier Georgie gets each day. She’s starting to look like a real little pom!
