A Perfect Day
First on the agenda, was breakfast in front of the fireplace. I love having a fire in the morning. Most people usually do a fire in the evening, which somehow makes a morning fire that much more cozy. If you haven't tried it, you really should.
After breakfast, we dragged all our quilts into the living room so we could watch Howl's Moving Castle. It was a fantastic movie that I can't recommend enough. We all LOVED it. Of course, all that movie watching and snuggling under the quilts made us hungry. So I whipped up a batch of the Barefoot Contessa's Sticky Buns. So easy and so delicious. While I baked the buns, my husband made some Mexican hot cocoa. (Hey, I didn't say it was a day for dieting. It was cold out, we needed to build a layer of fat to keep us warm...)
