It has been a hard winter, hasn't it? And yes, it's still with us, but - we've all seen those small, umistakable signs that the cold is receding, and warmer, gentler times are ahead.
That's when I turn to those lovely signs of Spring's arrival to cheer me up. I'll grab a pastel or bright color from the closet (anything but grey and black!), make a salad chock full of vibrant veggies, or read about a tropical get-away. My body may still be here in Winter, but no reason my mind can't escape to a balmier locale.
Are you alone right now? I mean, can we talk? Great; if that's the case, I'm going to give you the ONLY how-to tip you're gonna find here. I'm going to advise you to stop ALL of your holiday must-do's, pour yourself a nice, steamy mug of whatever you're craving, pop open a bag of biscotti that (spoiler alert!) someone else made - commercial or otherwise, and just set for awhile.
When the weather turns chilly, something warm and savory is called for, right? That's why I scoop my fall pumpkins off the porch (or heck, just open that can), and into the sauce pan...with a few essential ingredients, of course. Buen provecho!
The power of one, the help of many.
