With all of the sleet and snow we have been getting lately I thought that I would share with you a few of my favorite things to do when stuck inside!
For me no snow day is complete without the perfect old movie marathon. Here are a few of my favorites:
THE PHILADELPHIA STORY:
My all time favorite! Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and jimmy Stewart, what more can you ask for!?
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you will want to be Barbara Streisand!
MY FAIR LADY
This singing and dancing musical will chase away the rainy day blues!
If you have not seen it….What is wrong with you!?
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S
No list would be complete without this classic!
Top this off with the perfect cold weather cocktail. I was recently introduced to this recipe for Swedish mulled wine. Thanks Emily!
1 bottle of dry red wine
1 cup sugar
Peel of 1 orange cut into strips
1 cinnamon stick
6 cardamom seeds, crushed
½ cup Port wine or sweet vermouth (optional)
½ cup Vodka
½ cup slivered almonds
½ cup raisins
Combine first six items in sauce pan and let stand for 4 to 6 hours.
Cook just until heated through; do not boil. Remove from heat. Stir in Port and Vodka. Sprinkle almonds and raisins into cups. Strain warm glogg into prepared cups.
So the next time you are stuck inside, kick back relax and draw inspiration from the classics!
