Winter Pics

In my last post I mentioned that I would post some pictures, so here they are!

This picture was taken off of our front porch. Notice the snow on the shrubs and window box. If you look carefully you can see the snow piled high on our neighbors' vehicles.

Here is the snow on our deck. I couldn't open the slider door because I was afraid the snow would fall into our dining area.

Last week I had a shortened schedule because of final exams, so I made cinnamon rolls. If you need a great recipe I strongly suggest making these from Pioneer Woman's website. They are so good!! I did cut back on the amount of butter that was used. A friend was having a bake sale and I was able to get rid of most of them that way. It is hard to have these yummy things around the house.

This is a picture of my Steel Cut Oats! I got hooked on these a couple of years ago. They are very different compared to your traditional oats. I have a Weight Watcher's recipe that you make the steel cut oats in a crock pot overnight. Let me tell you, there is nothing like coming have a warm cooked breakfast ready for you in the morning when it is 0 degrees outside!
