Warm feet, Cold morning

So it was a really freezing morning last Saturday,
but I got up and did some early morning
witnessing. Got to talk to some groovy people.
And check out the awesome sunrise.

In warmer news the brown rice rotini is back!
Covered in Udo's oils and a healthy sprinkle of nutritional yeast.
Oh yum baby!
Perfect dinner on a cold wintry night.

$9? Oh yeah!
Especially when you have some cute new boots to
keep your feet warm and your calves are looking
tight with a healthy sized wedge.
Thanks Forever21!
These have great grip on the bottom.
You know I cannot buy shoes that aren't
practical...At least they can be cute too.
Ending on a random note...
A few weeks ago my family and I went
to the Heinz History Center and yes I took
more pictures, but I thought this one was super cool.
After we had walked through the whole center
mum, bro and I took a seat in the rocking chairs
down in the main area entry area.
When I leaned back in my chair this view greeted me.
The History Center doesn't have complete floors
(that which you stand upon).
So from the first floor you can see all the way up
to the top floor.

Flashback Friday

October Sunset
  How beautiful are the sunsets in the fall?
This beautiful...

September Dinner
 Yummy dinner at Bahama Breeze in Robinson Town Centre.
Delicious Cuban bread sandwich with a tomato balsamic salad on the side.

October Milestone
Did I mention Ive been doing Zumba since April? I didn't? Well, I have.
Once or twice a week. This is the second punch card Ive completed.
High five!

Late summer pizza party
  Yummy veggie filled pizza I made at a friends house.
We were entertaining some youngster and decided
 it would be fun to let them make their own pizzas.

Why do I come up with these brilliant ideas?
Well at least the kids had fun...

Just kidding! It was a ball of fun.
This baby was delicious.
Smothered in diced tomato, red onion, yellow pepper, olive and artichoke.

Late summer Harvest
Remember summer?
And green tomatoes?
I do.
With longing sighs....

Whats been happening?

creamy (thanks to tahini) spinach and sun dried tomato risotto

In November my parents and siblings went away for the weekend
to the Homewood Suites. Nice tradition!
There was a lovely Italian store very near the Hotel.
They had this sun dried tomato risotto for so cheap
I just had to give it a try. I'm not a fan of white rice
but this is really good.
On an unrelated note that is Azure Sula Paint and Peel on my thumb.

the beautiful fall colors..
Just  a few weeks ago it looked like this...
Amazing how fast time is flying by...

I didn't get a chance to take a proper fall drive this year
but the leaves in my area were amazing.
And I was sort of on my way to Ireland on the peak.

A  yummy random lunch..
Random cravings.....
Amy's Tamale Verde Black Bean...
I really like this meal. It is really tasty and flavorful.
I was always hesitant to try Tamale,but I'm a fan of this.

foggy days....
We had a few foggy mornings along the way.
I'm such a fan of the fog.
It's so moody and thick and beautiful.

paging pee wee Herman....
Wearing my grey H&M dress pants and light colored
Hush Puppy Sneakers I feel a bit like pee wee.
But in a good kind of way.

is it raining? no.....

blurry snow flakes..
And we've had a bit of snow.
And then it was 60 degrees.
And now it is back to frigidity and a few flurries
this past Tuesday when I was walking to the
East End Food Co-op.
