January usually brings a plethora of fluffy snowflakes to the north country in the form of “lake effect” snow. Lake effect snow occurs when cold, dry winds blow warmer lake water, picking up moisture and heat along the way, and dumping snow in it’s path. We live for the excess snow up here because with it comes the opportunity to go sledding, snow shoeing, skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating outdoors, and all of the other activities that make winter up north so lovely. Even if you don’t care to frolic in the snow, it’s easy to appreciate the glittering white blanketing everything anew due to the near daily snowfall.
My foot is healing post surgery slower than I’d like, so skiing, snow shoeing, and ice skating are still out of the question. The mere thought of trying to strap on the required footwear makes me break out into a cold sweat! Bacon Slayer and Son #1 were able to skate at friends’ outdoor hockey rink last weekend. As in, they have a full size rink with boards, a warming hut, and a real Zamboni to clear the ice–right in their yard! Amazing. Of course, being guys, they didn’t think to take a single photo for me to share with you! If they have the opportunity to skate there again, I’ll be sure to tag along to take snaps.
We were also able to get out and sled for a few hours last weekend. Well, the boys sled while I took photos until my fingers were too cold to function properly. Sounds odd, I know, but I’m going nutty being cooped up in the house, so I’ll take whatever activity that I can get!
This week has been rainy with higher than normal temperatures, causing what snow we do have to morph into slush and ice. Not so bueno for outdoor activities. Cue the sad trombone and Stir Crazy x 100.
In the absence of outdoor fun, the cruddy weather practically forces me to pay attention to football playoffs. Sadly (read: predictably), the Detroit Lions were bumped in the first week. As a soccer fan, I have to work to mustering enthusiasm for football once my team is ousted from contention. Which for a Lions fan? Is every year. Heck, we’re happy when the Lions even make the playoffs. Although I must say that watching bits of Atlanta trouncing the Packers yesterday was satisfying. Because obviously I have ridiculous loyalties to teams that play rivals of the Lions.
Confession: watching football is really just an excuse for me to make a bunch of appetizers to nosh on instead of a proper dinner. There. I said it. I don’t care about football until the Super Bowl. Even then, I’m waiting to be entertained by the commercials and preparing my snark for the halftime show. #truthbomb
Consider this my meandering way to get to the good stuff. This. THIS is the good stuff.
Football is all about yelling at the official’s calls over teams that I don’t care about, while munching on savory bites of deliciousness, such as these easy, breezy, Cheesy Italian Herb Pinwheels.
Who’s with me?
Cheesy Italian Herb Pinwheels are made with a quick biscuit dough, slathered with butter, then rolled “pinwheel style” with Italian seasoning and plenty of cheese. Served with marinara sauce for dipping, Cheesy Italian Herb Pinwheels are a savory three-bite appetizer that everyone will enjoy; whether they’re into the game or, like me, are just there for the food.
Cheesy Italian Herb Pinwheels are the perfect nibbles for munching!
