Raining On Snow

February 2, 2010

It’s raining on the snow. I hate that!

But we may get more this weekend! Gah!

I worked through the morning and then zipped over to Y2Yoga for a lunchtime power vinyasa class. Yoga + rainy days are pure bliss. Especially when it’s also freezing cold. Class was awesome. I tried a flying crow! (At least I think that’s what it was!?) Tanner demonstrated about 5 arm balances in a row all flowing into one another. He is crazy strong and didn’t waver once. I could barely get my legs on my elbow! I got the pose for all of a thousandth of a second. I need to try it when my arms are not gumbies!

I came home to this and a starving belly:

I almost ate the whole loaf, but I restrained myself to two slices :)

Along with a cup of leftover Easy Blended Lentil Soup (<— a new recipe page) Topped with a crumble of cornbread that Karen left here last night!

And a chopped apple with cinnamon – heated up!

Andrea at POM left this comment re. the crazy twisted bottles. Glad it was a fluke!

Apologies to everyone for the cap difficulties, our plant had a miscalculation on the torque and clearly got it a bit tight.  Issue is resolved now.  For anyone who received Juice that they couldn’t open, shoot me a note and we’ll send a replacement. :)  [email protected]

Back at it!

I hate the raining on snow, too!!


2 Ameena February 2, 2010 at 2:25 pm

Lunch looks great!

How nice of the POM people to get back to you so quickly. I really want to try their stuff!


3 Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries February 2, 2010 at 2:25 pm

Cornbread in soup is the best comfort food ever. And entirely necessary on rain + snow days. Blech.


4 Karla February 2, 2010 at 2:27 pm

Oh no!! Sludginess :(
That loaf of bread looks AMAZING! I’m a wee bit jealous


5 Chelsea February 2, 2010 at 2:32 pm

That bread looks so good. I don’t think I’ve mentioned lately how jealous I am that Matt cooks. You are one lucky lady!!! Shaun has his own strengths but cooking IS NOT one of them. :)

Rain on snow is so depressing :-(


7 Morgan @ Life After Bagels February 2, 2010 at 2:40 pm

8 weekly bite February 2, 2010 at 2:41 pm

Raining onsnow is the worst! Its suppose to do that later on today in DC… Ugh!

9 Lauren @ Eater not a runner February 2, 2010 at 2:45 pm

That bread looks amazing!


10 Biz February 2, 2010 at 2:48 pm

Cannot stand February weather – sunny and close to 40’s some days, then bitter cold other days. We got an inch of snow last night – yuck!


11 Biz February 2, 2010 at 2:50 pm

I was going through my blog posts to catch some recipes that aren’t on my recipe page – there are dozens, but I made this acorn squash soup that made me think you might like it – its super easy too!

Acorn squash bisque.

I love that POM took the time to fix the issue — three cheers! 😀

It’s due to start raining or snowing any minute snow — I hate when the rain creates slush everywhere.


13 Jenn (www. j3nn.net ) February 2, 2010 at 2:54 pm

Love your lunch!! It looks so comforting on a cold, rainy day. Yummy! :)

I think I have the same mini white dish, from Pier 1?



14 Cynthia (It All Changes) February 2, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Rain on snow is depressing. All the prettiness goes away.

WIth all the crazy names of yoga poses I can get so confused. But I love trying new ones.


15 Katie@ Two Lives, One Lifestyle February 2, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Rain on the snow is not pretty at all, yoga and warm comfort food sounds like a good way to make the day a little brighter


16 Ashley February 2, 2010 at 3:09 pm

BREAD me pleeeease!!!! I’ve cut back on GH loaves for awhile…can’t wait til I have some cashflow!!


17 zestycook February 2, 2010 at 3:17 pm

That Bread….. GAWD


18 Kristen @ Change of Pace February 2, 2010 at 3:19 pm

I hope it doesn’t snow this weekend! I’m supposed to head towards Raleigh on Friday :)


19 Heather February 2, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Rain + Snow = one yucky mess…

Glad you had a great yoga workout – and that lentil soup looks amazing!

enjoy the rest of your day!


20 Emily Eats and Exercises February 2, 2010 at 3:21 pm

Sounds like crummy weather. I hope it doesn’t go back to being cold and have all the rain turn to ice. :( That bread looks so good. My boyfriend used to work at Great Harvest – I miss that bread!


21 Freya @ foodfitnessandfreya.wordpress.com February 2, 2010 at 3:37 pm

OOhhh every single part of your lunch looks/sounds delish!
Rain on snow is the worst, then it’s just mush – no-one likes mush :(
I’m going to check out the new recipe now 😀


22 Cole February 2, 2010 at 3:39 pm

That bread look amazing. Yum. The rain on top of snow? Yeah, not so much. Slush is no fun.


23 kate February 2, 2010 at 3:51 pm

that bread looks so amazing! i need to try some lentil recipes. enjoy the snow :)


24 Kelly@ khakalackin.blogspot.com February 2, 2010 at 3:51 pm

The apples and cinnamon look perfect for this gloomy weather! I might try this. How long did you heat the apples for?


25 Kath February 2, 2010 at 3:52 pm

30 seconds


26 Kelly@ khakalackin.blogspot.com February 2, 2010 at 3:52 pm

Wow, you are fast! Thanks!


27 Kath February 2, 2010 at 3:54 pm

I like being a stay at home blogger :)


28 K February 2, 2010 at 4:07 pm

What a yummy lunch for the dreary weather! It’s been snowing all day in MI and it’s giving me the blahs!


29 Mama Pea February 2, 2010 at 4:08 pm

Leftover soup mush on a mushy day! That sounds about right!


30 Lisa @bakebikeblog February 2, 2010 at 4:09 pm

I know what you mean about yoga on a rainy cold day = perfect :) Loving that lunch too!


31 Jil February 2, 2010 at 4:09 pm

That bread looks absolutely phenomenalll!


32 Kristilyn (My 29th Year) February 2, 2010 at 4:30 pm

Kath, if you come up to Canada you can have LOTS of snow! I think if it rained right now I would cry because the roads would be insanely slippery. Not a lot of fun to drive on, that’s for sure!

That loaf of bread looks amazing! I’m with you – I could definitely have eaten the whole loaf!



33 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope February 2, 2010 at 4:46 pm

OMG, that bread looks amazing!!! What a gorgeous loaf! And cinnamon is definitely the perfecting pairing to apples. :)


34 Heather (Heather's Dish) February 2, 2010 at 5:09 pm

yoga on rainy days is definitely a great thing…i love that whole cozy feeling you get from rain!


35 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) February 2, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Looks like today turned out pretty nice after all. I think it is so funny how some people think yoga is too easy. It is amazing how strong you have to be to do most of it. Such a great strength trainer!


36 Tara @ Geek Baker February 2, 2010 at 5:20 pm

Gawh…there are so few things better than warm apples…..nummmmm………..
I’ve substantially souped up my oatmeal lately and believe I have you to thank for it! Bananas, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, flax seeds, almonds……


37 Naomi(onefitfoodie) February 2, 2010 at 5:33 pm

LOL I am so glad you got the POM top thing figured out! that was hilrious the way you opened it :)

delicious looking loaf ya got there!


38 Shannon February 2, 2010 at 5:37 pm

I lose all control with fresh baked bread! That looks so good!

I think I would like winter in North Carolina….just enough snow!


39 Rachel D February 2, 2010 at 6:02 pm

This weather is disgusting, and we still have tons of snow on the ground in Greensboro! North Carolina is not giving you a good February to remember it by that is for sure. I wanted to ask you what other things you think would be good on a hot apple (I don’t eat cinnamon)?


40 christi February 2, 2010 at 6:40 pm

that bread looks delicious!


41 Jamie February 2, 2010 at 6:55 pm

ugh i hate rain on snow too; im sure it will freeze tonight and make for some terrible conditions tomorrow! that loaf of bread looks awesome; im surprised you didn’t top with preserves!


42 Hannah February 2, 2010 at 7:06 pm

Haha, I was about to ask how long to heat the apple too! I tried it a few weeks ago but did something like 2 minutes, and ended up with teh saddest little bits of mush attached to chewy skin (oh yeah I ate it! :P)


43 Jessica @ The Process of Healing February 2, 2010 at 7:10 pm

I agree. Raining on snow does not make for good things. I almost busted by behind because that very thing today. Fun times :)
And warm apples are sooooo good!


44 Heather February 2, 2010 at 7:23 pm

I never thought to put cinnimon on apples and heat it up, thanks for the idea!


45 Alyssa February 2, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Congrats on the crow! That was my first arm balance! It feels great to know you can do it. My yoga teacher always says – don’t be too proud of your self if you can do it and don’t be too hard on your self if you can’t. Keep practicing and you’ll be able to do the arm flows soon enough!


46 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg February 2, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Mmmm….that bread is SO pretty! You definitely restrained yourself by only having a little! :-)


47 Sara February 2, 2010 at 7:55 pm

What a simply delightful meal! I’d want to inhale that entire loaf too by the looks of it 😉


48 Colleen February 2, 2010 at 7:59 pm

keep it up with the crow! i was having a lot of trouble with it until one instructor said it’s really about your core, not necessarily your arms, and it all came together. i tried to do it last night at hot yoga though and my legs kept slipping off my sweaty arms :)


49 Jenna February 2, 2010 at 11:15 pm

Bread looks delish!!


50 Lindsay February 2, 2010 at 11:50 pm

Just realized that I have the same glass, square plate, and tiny fork/spoon as you. At least I think they’re the same. They all came from World Market, yes?!


51 Kath February 3, 2010 at 5:58 am

Plate + fork are Crate + Barrel, glass is Linens and Things and spoon is indeed World Market!


52 [email protected] February 3, 2010 at 6:40 am

In that picture…there is snow on the ground!? It looks like more of a frost lol… I guess thats what living in Canada does to ya!

That is nice of pom to get back to you so quick and make up for it!
