Snow Day, The Belvedere Way

In: At Home

Those who have complained about our no-snow winter thus far might finally get their wish. It seems that everyone is talking about the potential snowpocalyptic blizzard hitting the Baltimore/DC area this weekend. At Belvedere & Co., we have a couple northerners (NY & PA) that are self-proclaimed snow day experts and since we have a feeling that most are going to be trapped indoors for a while, we are here to help you make the best of it.

A snow day at home gives you the perfect opportunity to never, and I mean never, get out of your PJs and relax all day. Let’s prep and stockpile some essentials now, so you can get the absolute MOST of your snowed-in situation.


 

FOOD

Stocking up your pantry is key, and not just for emergency situations. If you are anything like us at Belvedere & Co., a snow day is an excuse to eat, sleep and repeat. This is why a hearty, bone-warming crockpot recipe is a snow day must. A crock pot recipe allows for minimum effort but maximum flavor. We all have our favorite go-to recipes so check them out!crock pot snow day food

STREAMING

Food ✓ Drinks ✓… Now to the best part…. Netflix and chill (or nap). And, I don’t know about you but we are constantly asking one another about what to stream next on our days off. So, again, to make your snow day that much easier, here are our streaming suggestions for hours of couch-time under the snuggliest blanket.
