Cleaning a ceramic crock potRemoved snow from the patio with our garage sale snow blower (Will feels like a super star when he gets a mention in the blog).

Will using the snow blowerMade butternut squash soup, using our awesome squash and this great recipe.  The combo of roasted butternut squash and maple syrup is divine.

Chicken in the snowAnd the absolute highlight – found a pomegranate in the fridge that I had forgotten about and made lemon pomegranate cookies.  Baked half, rolled the rest of the dough into balls, and froze them to bake later.  Yum-o.
