Happy Wednesday! Last weekend, for us was very busy, with Halloween and my sis in law's Birthday! It was full of fun, family and food! My sis in law's best friend, from California came with her family, and her husband who loves to cook, made the most amazing Fresh Habenero salsa for us. Let me just say it was Hot, super Hot, but it was so good that it made you think you were eating in a authentic Mexican restaurant. Once I get the recipe, I will be sure and share it with all of you.
One New Years resolution I have, that I have pretty well stuck to this year, is cutting drastically down the amount of sugar I use. Here is a good article for 5 Sugar Alternatives to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth. I will be using these inspirations to help me through this Holiday season, as well into next year!
This Holiday Season, I have a feeling that I am going to need more energy this year, as I am going to have visiting relatives, several times over the course of the next couple of months.
Yesterday, was the first really cold morning we've had. Cold enough where I could open all my windows and let the fresh air in! It is definitely sweater weather here in Arizona now! I feel it's time to pick up a white turtleneck sweater and I have my eye on this one, and just for looks (because it really isn't that cold here) a plaid scarf!
"Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink." —Lilly Pulitzer
After yesterday, when the sun took it's sweet time coming out of hiding from the clouds, that I like the cooler temperatures, I just missed the warmth of sunshine, and even though the colors of Fall are in full force with oranges, red and yellows, I do like to see a little peek of pink. Last night, I started browsing for Hyacinth or Amaryllis bulbs to force for Christmas, White Hyacinth 'Carneige' and my go to Amaryllis 'Red Lion' that I seem to get every year, led me to peruse the Tulips, when my this Pink Tulip caught my eye.
