Comfort food on a snowy day

Morning bloggies!

I for one am very sad that it's Monday and the weekend is over. Don't they always fly by way too fast?

This weekend D.C. got hit with a bit of a snowstorm. The weathermen were all saying we were only supposed to get a dusting to an inch. Surprise, surprise, we got about six.

After being cooped up inside all day on Saturday, the BF and I were more than a little stir crazy come dinnertime. We decided to venture out to get some delicious Panera soup for dinner. We bundled up and walked the half mile or so to Panera. Despite my boots I was still sliding all over the place. (I should have taken pictures so you could see just how bundled I was.)

But the baked potato soup was so worth it. I highly recommend it if you're in the mood for some warm comfort food.

The bread bowl is a must!

After dinner we walked over to Border's, scored some sweet $2 books in the sale boxes and then go some coffee and tea. Coffee for the BF, tea for me.

And on the way home, we stopped at Cake Love for some delicious cupcakes.

So despite the fact that it was freezing cold and slippery outside, good food somehow managed to make it all better and getting out of the house was so worth it.

(All photos are randomly grabbed from Google because it was far too cold for me to have my camera with me.)
