‘life is a banquet’ -auntie mame
“…and most poor suckers are starving!” well, that’s what she said! i have to admit after the holidays i’ve done anything but starve but that’s slowly changing thankfully! allo et bon saturday! this has got to be what’s considered ‘the middle of winter’. it’s even bleak here in miami and i’m wearing an irish sweater, cozy socks and a blanket around my shoulders! it’s the kind of day that makes me want to nest and enjoy some down time without the pressure to be out and about.
have you been keeping any of your new year’s resolutions? i’m trying to remember if i made any…oh right, to enjoy life more. my new regime is to stop mult- tasking and focus on one thing at a time. for me that means a little work, a little blogging, a little pinterest, some nap time, some outdoor time and a nosh throughout the day instead of all at once.
it got me thinking of my new obsession: food! they way we as a culture look at it, somehow we’re a little out of touch with it and how it affects us, what to eat, how much…wondering why we are bloated, acidic or even anemic. well i do anyway and this year i’m vowing to really think about what i’m putting in this little temple.
the shots above were reminders that we can eat lavishly or eat sparsely as long as we eat well! just like a the way we set table top, it doesn’t take much to enjoy rich delicious, nourishing food.
personally i switched from coffee to tea with no milk and have seen a big improvement already around my waistline.
i love a hot meal and long for eggs in the morning. i found these recipies that actually answer the questions, what should i eat for breakfast today and
will it help me look better in a bikini?
liz got a bullet and has been making smoothies and soups. i adore all sorts of pureed veggies so i’m definitely putting that on the list next time i head out.
i’ve kind of cut out bread at the moment (can’t last forever)! but love the shot above and the website is great. finally, i’m not really a vegetarian or vegan but am intrigued by the healthy lifestyle. there is a lot to consider besides what meat to have on the plate each night! below are some veggie recipies i’d like to try:
and just for our notes:
well, i’m getting hungry and do have a rendezvous so i better get to stepping. you can find a bunch of delicious pins and ideas here: pinterest.com/parisapartment/delicious
on one final note, it’s such fun to do giveaways and as i mentioned in the last post, i have so many that i haven’t been keeping up with and am making january the official month of the lotto!
i was sent this book to review and it’s just adorable. the author has a great sense of humor and it’s full of her play on words and sweet illustrations. if you’d like to win a copy just leave a comment and we’ll draw on tuesday.
and that’s a wrap. i’ll actually be on time if i leave right now so tout à l’heure and have a great saturday night!
