Taco Soup Night...

Well, I checked our school district website and they've closed schools for tomorrow as well, due to the anticipated snow (even though there is none predicted) and the subzero temperatures. It's currently 1 degree outside with some sunshine. The breezes though are keeping the windchill pretty cold (-27 at the moment). So, the girls had one day of school this week and are now off for the remainder of the week as Thursday and Friday were already scheduled off for teacher in-service days. Today, they were fine staying indoors, but I suspect tomorrow they'll get antsy to do something. I may get antsy, too.

In the meantime, they requested Taco Soup for dinner.
I made it for the first time a couple of weeks ago, following the recipe linked above, and it was a big hit. So, it's simmering on the stove as we speak. I like chili just fine, but this stuff, omg, tastes way better than chili to me.

We played some games, Bonkers, Toss Up and the Wii (Race-o-rama {the Cars game}) and the girls played Barbies for a good chunk of the day. I also worked on a new puzzle. Nice and quiet and warm.

Yum - that looks cold on such a cold day! It was -15 when I took the girls to school this morning (and darn, there was still school!) and I think we got to a high of -2! Our wind chill temps are supposed to be between -30 and -40 BRRRRR! I hope you all stay warm! Enjoy the time with your girls!
