Baby, IT'S Cold Outside

When I woke up this morning the temperature outside was -35 degrees Celsius which is bloody cold!

Today is a plug-your-car-in, wear-every-piece of warm-clothes-you-own, turn-up-the-heat, better-yet-just-stay-inside kind of day!!!

Jack Frost is not just nipping at your nose - he full-on took a big hunk out of it!!!

This is what it looks like out our front door today - Brrrrrrrrr!

We decided to make our favourite breakfast - Bagels and eggs with turkey bacon

Bagels and Eggs

2 bagels
4 eggs
handful shredded cheese
spices of choice - we use Epicure Herb 'n Garlic

-Cut bagels in half and lightly toast and butter (it is good to toast the bagels first so they don't get soggy)
-Spray frying pan with Pam
-Place bagels in pan and widen holes if necessary.
-Crack 1 egg in each bagel hole carefully (sometimes you need to lift the bagel up to let the egg fall thru slightly.
-Cook on medium heat
-Add water to help steam cook eggs (like basting)
-Cover and let cook.

When eggs are close to your desired consistency - sprinkle with cheese and spices
When cheese is melted you are done

Voila Bagels and eggs! Yum.

Now, I am going to spend the day reading the book my Sis-in-law, Danielle, gave me. Whilst curled up on the couch with a blanket and a cup of Bengal Spiced tea.

And because I have been told this book is a tear-jerker - I will make sure this stays handy.

Oh and yesterday we hit 13 months!!! UGH! That dull, thudding sound you heard was just me banging my head against a brick wall!


Julie said...

Yum! Toad in the hole! And, uhm, are going to need that Kleenex.

Chad, Laura and Sara said...

You are not alone with the cold - We were at -41C with the wind chill yesterday - It is going to be a long winter (in more ways then one).


Natalie and Chris said...

Mmmm that looks good. I think I may just try that.
One month down, one month closer.

Rhonda and Kristin said...

Oh dude, my cat won't even go outside to pee....that's how cold it is! That book looks so good, reminds me of my pooch.

And as for 13 months, boo, I mean horray that you've got that many under your belt. January I'm thinking, January.

CinnamonOpus said...

Yummmm... eggs for brekkie! We'll definitely have to try that one!

And here's hoping this month is lucky number 13 for you.

The Warren Family said...

Plugging in your car...that is nuts!! That is not something we have ever had to do here. Wow, sounds cold!!

4 Little Birdies said...

Oh you will use that whole box of Kleenex. I cried so hard when I read that book!

And -35???? That IS bloody cold! Yikes!

Danielle and Nick said...

Wow -35!! I can't imagine! Oh, but those Bagels look yummy enough to make me forget all about the cold outside!

Ricki said...

Here's hoping for lucky #13 girl!!!!
ANd those bagels look SOOO good!!!!

Kendra said...

Come on to the dark side! It's 10 degrees and raining in Ontario!

Mind you I would rather it cool off just a bit so we could have a white Christmas, but -35 - no thanks.

D Dae said...

Here's hoping it happens in January for you... we don't want that head getting too bashed up from banging against a brick wall. :)

Good for you taking care of yourself!

Curvy Runner said...

Hooray for 13 months! One less nasty ole month in your way.

Darrell and Jess said...

brr is right... My dog comes in crying after going out to do his business! I've been drinking a lot of tea lately as well... but I need a good book - not sure I want a book to make me cry though... any other suggestions?!

Gaunt Family said...

That sounds like a yummy yummy breakfast. I am going to make it this weekend for my family. I'll let you know how it goes. :-) How was the book? I also wanted to tell you that Bengal Spice is my favourite tea. Kenya and I drink it together more month down. Hopefully before your ticker can change the 3 to a 4 you'll know who your babe is!

Janice said...

Sounds a like a great way to spend the day when it's too cold out to do anything outside. I'm jealous that you got to spend the day with a good book and a cup of tea. Sounds heavenly.

This better be your month!!

Littleone said...

Great book for anyone with a dog! You will need lots of Kleenex and I can't wait for the show that comes out Christmas day.

Hang in there and stay warm!

It is cold on the prairies- and the next door province is just as cold and windy... I was told that it's so cold people need to pick condoms with an R value...uhuh...
Month 13. How'd we get to be the "old waiters"? I so don't want to set a new record for the longest wait. Wish I knew what the next batch of referrals held already... One more month closer....
