We got hit with Winter Storm Kayla on Tuesday morning and ended up with about a foot of snow and two snow days.

With the Super Bowl right around the corner, I’ve got football food on my mind. You know, wings, pizza, nachos, pretzels….all the things that don’t jive well with New Years resolutions. But you can’t really eat salad for the Super Bowl. That would be sad and wrong. Instead you should eat calzones made of soft
