It is 29F degrees with an expected high of 55F. The schools are closed. Unreal. We had a flake or two of snow yesterday, but in our yard and on our streets, nada. The mountains surrounding Chattanooga did get a ground cover and their temps are always lower, but to close schools for that????? I am sure the kiddos are thrilled to have another long weekend, as Monday schools are closed for Martin Luther King Day, but making up these days are not going to be so much fun at the end of the school year.
My 9 year old granddaughter concocted her own recipe for banana puddin' and she had her Mom, my Jenn, to take a picture and send to me. I wrote back and told Caroline she could make that for me any time. She does like to cook but she prefers her own recipes to the ones in a book! It had vanilla yogurt, crushed graham crackers sliced bananas, and topped with whipping cream. Who wouldn't like that?
