Friday Five [1.15.16]

Happy Friday, Y'all!!  I can't believe that we're already half-way through January!  We had been blessed with an unseasonably warm winter (as in the warmest in 120 years!!!) up until this week.  Now it's frigid and snowy, which has influenced this week's Friday Five (or in this case six)....

I had to pick all the kale from the garden before the snow arrived.  We've been enjoying pan-fried kale....

....and kale chicken Caesar salad with Parmesan crisps all week.  Seriously delicious.  Think Panera, but better.  The Parmesan crisps are a breeze with the Silpat liners and are so much yummier than croutons.

In anticipation of the snow, we hung our DIY snowflake wreath on the front door.


We whipped up some Snow Ice Cream......

....some slow cooked sticky chicken.....


...and chicken tortellini soup.  The perfect solution to the cold.


Since I tend to hibernate when it's cold and snowy that leaves lots of time for crafts and such.  These needlepoint Valentine coasters fit the bill perfectly.

As you can tell, this little ole blog got a little update, too!  It was time for a change and I must confess I love the new look :).  It's much more me than the old one!

Wishing y'all terrific weekends!! Today I'm linking up with:
