Five on Friday SNOW day!

It's a SNOW DAY for real today! It's early and we already have a couple inches on the ground. They are calling for over 28" through tomorrow. Needless to say, we are settling in for a long weekend indoors. Which means, puzzles, PJ's, snuggles, and happy hour at 4, or 3. Or Bloody Mary's at 10 - no shame.

I thought I would join the Five on Friday link-up today, since I have lots of time on my hands - which happens, never. YAY! I thought it would be fun to list five things that are going to keep us busy today, and a few good things to fill our tummies.

{one} We started the day with simple French Toast made with leftover french bread from shrimp scampi earlier this week. I love making french toast when I have good bread laying around.

We also had a couple of Wright's Barrel Aged Bourbon Bacon no the side. It was ok. Great for sandwiches, but maybe not breakfast. Not bad with french toast though.

{two} A good bloody mary is a must for a snow day. When I worked at the Oyster Bar in Perdido Key we made our homemade bloody mary mix, and to this day it's still my favorite, however, this one is pretty close.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 48 ounce can of tomato juice, or about 6 cups
  • 3 tablespoons prepared creamy hot horseradish
  • 3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2¼ teaspoons celery salt
  • 3 teaspoons garlic salt
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • Pickle-infused vodka, or regular vodka if you prefer

{three} Apple, Cheddar, and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese. I am grilling up a big batch of these for lunch today. A grown-up grilled cheese. Perfect for a cold day!

{four} I love a good puzzle. It's been years since we did a puzzle, but you better believe I'm going to dig one out this weekend. Something so simple and fun about puzzle time.

{five} A little online shopping anyone?  Old Navy is having a 50% off sale, and get an additional 15% off Clearance with code ENJOY. I love these Boat-Neck Tee's and I already have this Embroidered-Yoke Top. Both are on sale today for $12. I picked up this Funnel-Neck Sweater for $15 - a cute look with leggings and boots.

Have a great snow day friends! I nice break for us after a couple of really busy work weeks.


  1. Hi Tracy, the grilled cheese looks super yummy! Have you ever heard of the Tenyo brand puzzles? They are my favorite! The quality is amazing. I've glued a few down and framed them. Super cute as gifts for kids! Have a wonderful snow day.


  2. Hope y'all are doing alright in the crazy snow!!!
