    My Book Tie-Ins of the Week:      
    Snow by Cynthia Rylant describes snow this way  it comes softly in the night like a quiet friend” or falls so “heavy [it buries] cars up to their noses. The story describes all types of snow and  shares a grandmother and her granddaugther enjoying the snow by sledding, making snow angels and more.

    I love the illustrations by Lauren Stringer are filled with joy and paint beautiful images that fit perfect with Cynthia Rylant’s words.

    JDaniel used his chopsticks to give snowballs a haircut.

     He went on to shovel the snow.
    Outdoor Cleaning

     JDaniel and the next door neighbor Nathan dusted off all the lawn furniture and railings on the deck.

    Snowflake Quesadilla

    After all the time outside, I made snowflake quesadilla for us to share. It was so easy to cut out a tortilla and warm it on the stove along with a second one in a frying pan with olive oil. Once both tortillas were browned I placed turkey and cheese between the tortillas. 

    I am also linking this to Feed Me Books Friday.

    I LOVED that book!!! Except it made me a little teary when Rylant mentioned the fading snow leaving only memories and a picture with Grandma on the same page. Am I crazy or did anyone else well up? :) Love the quesadilla, too.
