Nemo Had Me Baking

For everyone out here in New England, you all know about Nemo. Nemo ended up leaving us with 30 inches of snow between Friday and yesterday. Yes…we measured 🙂

After playing out in the snow with the puppies for a while, I whipped up some breakfast for the fam with Maggie. There are 7 of us, so it’s never a simple task. I don’t know how Mama C ever did it for this many years.

For breakfast, Maggie and I made some Whole Wheat Cranberry Pancakes with an Apple Topping.

Apple Topping

You all know by now that I’m a big fan of the fruit toppings on pancakes. This, was delicious. I ended up making two different kinds, an Apple Cinnamon and an Apple Cocoa Cinnamon.

Ingredients: Apple Cinnamon

3 Apples, peeled and chopped 1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon 1/3 Cup Water

Ingredients: Apple Cocoa Cinnamon

3 Apples, peeled and chopped 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon 1/3 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder

Directions:

1. Heat all ingredients in a small pot until apples are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Stir to keep it from burning.

Easy Peasy!

We made some Cranberry Gluten Free Pancakes for my sister, which I got much better at making this time! Whole Wheat Cranberry Pancakes for everyone else, and some whole wheat waffles! We all topped it with either the Cocoa or the Cinnamon Topping. Yummmm.

After Breakfast, we headed to tackle some of the snow that was still building up. This is just a view from inside the garage:

Brent helped clean off the roof because our heat wasn’t working yet and they were trying to get at the vent.

Brent is 6 foot 5…just to give you an idea…

It took a solid 2 hours for us to just clear the driveway and we had 6 people working on it. Slightly ridiculous. After shoveling for so long, we headed in and grabbed some lunch. We also sipped on some hot chocolate that Brent’s family had sent us for christmas. Candy Cane Hot Chocolate. YUM.

Can’t beat that when you need to warm up.

What is your favorite drink after shoveling snow??
