Whoa it has been quite a few months since I posted a “Favorites List” so here it is, some of my favorite things about Fall and Winter!
I love soups year-round, but even more so during the colder months of Fall and Winter! I’ll make (and eat) everything from chicken garlic to black bean soup. Here is a really useful infographic 10 Easy Homemade Soups from Shape.com
I heart Artichoke Hearts! This yummy vegetable has appeared on many of my favorites list, but I am really in to artichokes right now so here it is again. Besides being absolutely delicious artichokes are low in calories and fat and it’s a rich source of dietary fiber and antioxidants. I am so happy that they are available during the fall and winter. This article from Ocean Mist Farms “All About Artichokes” is super informative! They have tips on selecting and handling to preparing. Really good recipes too! You must check them out!
Holiday Parties and Get-togethers
I love getting together and celebrating with friends and family during this time of the year! I always try to spend quality time with the people in my life throughout the year, but it always feels a little more special during the holidays.
I think the one thing I like most about colder weather is Fall Fashion in particular: boots, scarfs and cozy sweaters! I love boots! All you need are some leggings and long tees and you are good to go!
The weather during the fall and winter makes me feel warm and toasty inside. It brings a different feeling in the air when the leaves start falling and the weather is crisp and cool. Everyone who knows me knows I love warm weather, but there’s nothing like cozy nights by the fire with a good book and a cup of tea or relaxing with my two girls and Coco (chocolate lab)!
