snow day! sloppy joes and chocolate milk March 2, 2009

Filed under: carrots,food,sloppy joe — insomnisnack @ 3:17 pm

No groceries, so I had to trek to the store (yes, uphill, and in the snow).  There were some nice things about having 6-12 inches of snow today.  When I finally did leave the house I found kids playing, folks shoveling, and almost a constant fall of snow.  You would think that people doing chores, like shoveling, would be short tempered or at the very least – focused.  But no.  They all (at least 4 strangers) took a moment to speak with me and share their stories.  I love that.  Another nice thing was that today I prepared a nostalgic kid’s lunch!  Veggie sloppy joes, chips, chocolate milk, and carrot sticks.  Can you ask for anything better?  Certainly not on such a perfect snow day.

    the next perfect snow day will 1) occur in san francisco/bay area when you and i have no grad school obligations, 2) involve some kind of sledding or snowsport, and 3) conclude with this meal or similar. maybe i needed to grab a shovel and help those strangers out!

    I love a good sloppy joe! I enjoyed making them for Mom and Sandy while you were visiting. They are messy and have lots of lip (and finger) smacking deliciousness!
