Chicken & Noodles, Cold Weather, and Kids

With the snowstorm in progress (8-10"+!!!!!) I decided that the day called for chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and homemade bread :)

It is one of the best go-to meals on a cold, snowy day! What is your favorite go-to meal on cold, snowy days?

Ok, so the rest of this blog post is probably going to step on toes, and I apologize. No, never mind, I don't apologize, because, well, you will understand when you read it....

This is in regards to a certain situation I witnessed.  A mother called her hair dresser to get her 3 year old son in for a haircut on Saturday. Picture this: the wind blowing very hard, near zero temps, with below zero wind chills. Why on earth would you willingly take a 3 year old out in that weather just to get a haircut??? A 3 year old does not NEED to go out in that weather just to get a hair cut! They don't have that much hair to warrant getting them sick just to get a trim! And even if they did have enough hair to warrant a trim, is it really worth the health risk to your child to take them out in that weather just for a trim that could wait another week? 

My boys are 11 and 13, and we won't allow them to go out playing in that weather! I mean, come on, what are you thinking? I understand that there are situations such as weddings, etc, that might prompt the parents to want to get the hair all trimmed up, but again, the child was 3.  Sometimes I really worry about the intelligence of some parents :(

Thoughts? It's ok to debate, just to let you know. As long as we are all adults about it, I think it would make the discussion much more interesting :)


  1. I agree that a child or even adult doesn't actually need to go out for a haircut. No matter the age I wouldn't even go out in this for a haircut. Nobody is going to notice when everyone is at home.

  2. I just wanted to let you know that I stalk your blog regularly :) Also, hand over the recipe for those noodles, woman! They look delicious!

  3. Exactly Bev! I feel that it is ridiculous to take a child out in this for something as petty as a hair cut!

  4. Ok, Deondra, are you ready? The recipe for the noodles is complicated, so listen up!

    1. get your purse. make sure you have your keys and wallet.
    2. got to the grocery.
    3. find the Mrs. Klusky's noodles.
    4. take them to the register and pay for them.
    5. take them home and boil some chicken.
    6. shred the boiled chicken.
    7. add noodles.
    8. cook until noodles are tender.
    9. enjoy!

    HAHA! I was lazy today :P
