Another Cold One

by Meghann on January 21, 2009

I told myself I was not going to complain about the weather, but its cooolllllddddd outside!


Thankfully its going to be another warm and beautiful weekend, but the fact that it’s 30 degrees out right now is a little unsettling.

I am of course a wimp and did not even have the heart to make the trip to my apartment gym for the treadmill, so instead I did a little cross training with Billy Blank’s Lower Body Boot Camp DVD I received through Netflix the other day.

The work out was ok. Not one of my favorites of his, but it did do the job of warming me up this morning.

Breakfast this morning was a little out of the norm for me.


Yes, that’s a biscuit covered in my Dad’s famous sausage gravy. 🙂

When my parent’s came up on Sunday my Dad surprised me with some of his left overs he had made for breakfast this morning. I am not one to deny any of my Dad’s homemade food (which is why I’m thankful I don’t live at home any more, I would weigh 200 lbs!), so I accepted the food graciously and saved it for a special morning.

I thought the freezing temps outside warranted a hot breakfast so I headed up the left overs and had a bowl on the side to round the meal out.


Strawberries, Blackberries & Grapes.. Oh My!

When I arrived at the office this morning I could not resist a cup of Hot Chocolate a co –worker was offering.


Nothing beats the cold weather chill then a delish Hot Chocolate.

Tonight’s low is 27! Time to break out the flannel pjs! 🙂

WOWZA – that sausage/biscuit/gravy combo looks heavenly!

I think you shoudl task your dad with making a healthy version of that – I’d love to see what he comes up with! 🙂

Mmm, what a great way to warm up! Hahaha, and you’re totally legit complaining about the weather. 30 is freakin’ cold for Florida!!

I love Biscuits and Gravy but hardly ever have it anymore. I love that you can splurge once and a while and still stay so healthy and active! Way to go!

7 Sarah January 21, 2009 at 9:49 am

ohh man, i could use some hot chocolate.

once it gets below freezing, i say everyone has a right to complain!

8 Erica January 21, 2009 at 9:55 am

Its cold in Charleston too! Booooooo! I am hoping it some how warms up this afternoon so I can go for a quick run outside, but its not looking good. The rest of our week looks like it will be much warmer too! Thank goodness!

9 Meg January 21, 2009 at 10:01 am

Stay warm! I agree that hot chocolate is a must in cold weather!

i am in loveeee with biscuits and sausage gravy! my dad is from north carolina, and he used to make it so good from scratch! whenever we visit my grandparents we eat them, and its so good! love that mug of hot chocolate 🙂

11 brandi January 21, 2009 at 10:11 am

It was -3 with the windchill this morning! Brr 🙂

Sometimes, homemade biscuits and gravy are the best thing to warm you up!

12 Melissa January 21, 2009 at 10:15 am

hehe, I know what you mean about living at the ‘rents! It definitely would have it’s perks but I agree, I’d weigh 200 lbs living there!

13 Kristi January 21, 2009 at 10:24 am

That’s about the same temp that it is here too. I am ready for the warm weather of spring to get here already! The biscuits and gravy look yummy…and so does the hot chocolate!

14 Sarah W. January 21, 2009 at 10:27 am

15 Mel January 21, 2009 at 10:31 am

Wow that is freezing for Florida, you definitely can complain!

Your biscuits and gravy looks really good, warming for a cold day.

16 Sara January 21, 2009 at 10:37 am

I didn’t realize that it got that cold in Florida! Oh my, your breakfast looks delicious. Breakfasts like that are great every once in a while. 🙂

17 Kate January 21, 2009 at 10:44 am

Sounds warm to me!;)That breakfast is normalized for you w/ the addition of beautiful berries!

18 elise January 21, 2009 at 11:04 am

I felt like the tips of my ears were going to freeze off this morning! So so so cold! It’s going to be a whopping 20 degrees here in Gainesville tonight. Crrrazzzy Florida weather!

Biscuits and gravy are my absolute favorite breakfast food! My dad always makes them when I’m home 🙂

Melissa – I’m crossing my fingers it cools down before I get to Colorado too!

Kathleen – Yes, I’ll be hitting the slopes in Breckenridge the first week of February. Its mine and my twin bro’s birthday present from our parents.

35 Lindsey (Mrs. LC) January 21, 2009 at 6:21 pm

Brrrr it was 24 with the windchill when I left this AM! And now it’s probably close to freezing and it’s dark and I’m gonna run. haha one of those runs I’m dreading, but hoping the cool air makes me go super fast!

36 redheadyellowdog January 21, 2009 at 6:33 pm

I love hot chocolate! I’ve been drinking it non stop through this cold spell!
