Snow Day Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (7)

Howdie lovers!

NYC got SLAMMED with snow. Winter was tired of our trash talk and decided to show up, give us some snow (okay, lots of snow about 25 plus inches) then bounce, leaving the city in disarray.

So what do you do with a snow day or two (after you play outside because the roads are closed of course)?


And binge watch Avatar the Last Airbender. Yea, super cheesy but Matt and I love this show. It’s perfect and really helps you tune into that inner child 😉 Oh yes.

Braving the storm to go and play…and dig out the cars! 


Beware of the power of these cookies. You will not be able to slow down because they are just so so so delicious. So be sure to hide them in the kitchen, out of reach just so you can savor them a little longer.
