Pom Pom / November 22, 2012

Pomegranates have been everywhere for the last couple years – in martinis, in a sauce, you name it — but especially around this time of year. I’ve been a fan of the juice for a long time (I’m not gonna lie, it might have a little something to do with the fact that I think the bottle looks fun, not as much the health benefits) – but it wasn’t until this week that I ate one all on its own. I always thought they might be a little boring to eat, but they are so good, and it was endlessly entertaining to sit there and try and get every last bit. I think I’m a little late to the party on this one, but better late than never I guess! Word to the wise, use a big bowl – the pomegranate hued spots on my couch look like they might be sticking around a while…along with those on my lampshade, needless to say there was a bit of an incident…

A Chill In The Air / November 9, 2012

I don’t know about you, but for me there’s definitely a feeling in the air this week that fall is coming to an end. I’m a little sad to see it go — mostly the pretty leaves — but excited for winter to arrive. Skiing, snowshoeing and lots of relaxing around the fireplace (not to mention the holidays and with it lots of desserts – yippee!!) are all just around the bend. Happy end of fall early winter weekend, hope it’s a good one!
