and lots of r
Then out of the blue I wake up this morning to a couple inches of snow and a 1 inch sheet of ice on the windshield of our cars. I was cold and not prepared with my hat and gloves to be scraping ice off a window. So needless to say, my Tuesday started off even gloomier than my Monday.

HURRAY! HURRAY! It's sunny today!
Don't get me wrong. I think snow is super pretty, and it's makes up for any bad qualities it has by helping to cleanse the earth. Washing away dirt and muck, watering the plants and grass as it melts, sparkling like diamonds on the trees as the sun makes it's first appearance. Snowscapes are breathtaking. Truly. But I can be a fairly nervous driver when temperatures drop to freezing or below. Especially because it's so so wet up here in the Pacific Northwest.
Icy roads + Kara driving = car in a ditch on the side of the freeway. Yes it really has happened. With DD in the car no less, but everyone was okay that night. It just makes me extra super cautious when the weather turns cold.
Enough of my rambles and onto some plates!

For a day that started off so dreary, in my opinion anyway, it turned pretty cheery by lunch time. I was very surprised at how bright a plate of orange and yellow food could be, and even more surprised to be blessed with the real sun making an appearance at his tribute party. Now if he could just stick around for the next few months I'd be a very very happy girl. Time to go read some yummy slices. Happy blogging everyone!
