When it's Cold outside

Since it's been cold outside here and outdoor activities have not been on the list of things to do, I thought I'd let you all in on what we do here when it's cold outside.

What do I like to do when it's cold outside? Curl up with a good book or movie, or bake like a mad woman.  Something about cold weather makes me crave carbs.  Not good for my waist line, but oh so tasty!
Favorite winter recipes. We love to make Pumpkin Pie Bread.  Chocolate Chip cookies are a big hit too.  I also enjoy making Spent Grain bread and buttery dinner rolls.  There's a recipe for cheddar biscuits that I add a touch of garlic to and they taste almost like Red Lobster biscuits.  Soups and stews and Chili also come into rotation when it's cold outside.
When I think of cold this is what I see:

What do I wear when it's cold?  Layers.  T shirt under a sweater or sweatshirt, a hoodie over a shirt, layers are my friend when it's cold out.
If you had the option of snow or no snow which would you choose?  Snow definitely.  When it's white it's way easier to deal with the cold.
What is your favorite winter activity? I like cross country skiing.  Sledding with the boys is fun too.  See we need snow to properly enjoy winter.

So what do you do when it's cold out side?

I'm with you! If it's too cold outside I'm all about the books and baking!

Oh, how I wish we had more snow! I totally agree that the cold is only worth it when everything's pretty & white! I love hunkering down, having movie days (with popcorn and hot chocolate) - if it's not TOO cold, I'm all for walks in the snow, building snowmen, and sliding!!

I love putting on a nice pair of sweats and just cuddling up with a fire. I'd love the baking thing, but...still can't do that :-)
