Blizzard of 2016 - "Jonas"

A few weeks ago we had our first snow event of 2016 and it was a doozy.  Winter Storm Jonas aka The Blizzard of 2016 was coming in hard. The good things were that we had plenty of time to prepare for it and it was going to hit us over the weekend.
We stocked up on food and other necessities, like fire wood, flashlights, movies and WINE!
I don't know what it is about snow days that makes us want to bake but Miss High School went right to it on Saturday morning with these Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins.
This was about halfway through the storm (18 inches).  I was off of shoveling duty because of this and Mr. Click and Miss High School went out twice to shovel. I didn't take many snow photos either because I just wasn't out in it, I didn't want to slip and hurt my wrist more.
I did make soup for the cold and hungry shovelers (this one is no-chicken orzo with chickpeas).
We made sushi one night because we happened to have all of the ingredients on hand. Tutorial is coming soon.
The icicles were crazy the day after the storm.
I made more soup (Potato-Cauliflower Chowder) and MHS made coconut oil biscuits.
We ended up having two snow days and by the second snow day's afternoon cabin fever was setting in so we went to yoga and then to lunch at Zoe's Kitchen. I had the hummus salad and she had the veggie kabobs. Both are so good.   It was a pretty perfect snowstorm, as snowstorms go!

Let's keep in touch!

We have had one day of flurry's. Would be nice to see a good snow, course I can say that I don't have to get out in it. Sounds like you ate well while all the snowing was going on. lol

You guys were slammed! I did give you time to eat some delicious food! I need to grab those vegan butter chocolate chip muffins!

Looks like you guys had the perfect recipe for some cozy, indoor family time! Your daughter baked some really tasty-looking muffins. :) And your soup looks so good too! I love to eat soup when it's cold or snowing. It's good you didn't risk hurting your wrist more by shoveling snow!

Fun! A perfect way to celebrate Jonas. ;-) My son Sam's best friend is named Jonas, so we got a kick out of that for the big storm.

That was a doozy wasn't it!? We had 31" total. Thankful for three young men/teenagers who helped Bill with shoveling duty. Sounds like you made good use of your time inside!
