Spring, ehh…

Mother Nature says, not so fast! Today was coldest day of Winter…. single digit temps in NY and expected to last through the week.  Not ideal walking weather… even with my insulated coat but we had a few tasks to complete.  Here are a few views we tend to take for granted. The street food vendors are always around, pretty much 365 days a year.

The M&M store is like a museum, fun for M&M lovers… from the crowds and all of the M&M filled shopping bags they appear to be thriving. I was tempted by the super cute M&M pillows myself but really…

And, Broadway, while the streets were busy, some areas are strategically closed/blocked off  and few people appear in my photos.

 

 

 

 

Tumeric…

I’ve stocked up on my spices for the Winter. Purchased them on Amazon but it can easily be found in your local supermarket shelves. I prefer Organic/good quality spice.

Tumeric is great for combating inflammation in the body too. I add 1t of Tumeric and add a few dashes of Black Pepper (it helps to boost the absorption of curcumin), Cinnamon & Ginger and steep it all for 7 minutes with my tea bag.

There are a number of ways to sneak Tumeric into homecooked meals like. I cook Latin foods which already use a lot of spice so adding Tumeric to: brown rice dishes, beans, stews, roasted chicken, meatloaf/balls, soups, eggs, potatoes, tomato sauce… – just about everything is easy.

Just remember…

in the Winter far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed
That with the sun’s love
In the Spring
Becomes the rose…

Crocheted colorful flower
