Hello my friends! TGIF! I’m so excited that friday is (finally) here! Oh dear. This week zoomed by too quick, seems like this whole month zoomed by too quick too ~ and of course, hello let’s just face the fact : did the entire year go by too quick?! I mean, it’s the last day of November today….
This is the time of a true transition from Fall into Winter ~ the last leaves are falling off the already bare trees, days are grey and short. We seem to naturally fall into a hibernation mode… bring out lush warm blankets, warm slippers and if you’re lucky to have one ~ light the fireplace. Getting more comfy and cozy at home just comes naturally this time of the year… and what better way to enjoy that comfort and joy than with a great warming meal steaming hot on our table. Gathered around with our family and enjoying good food, togetherness and a good story and laugh in between mouthfuls.
Yes, this transitional time is a great time just before the rush of the holidays come on by… So my dear friends, I do hope you’re taking this time as a great peaceful and happy time in your life. It’s also a season of doctor’s visits with the cold or the flu. That’s when food becomes so important. It’s not just *food* it’s nourishment for your entire body and mind to stay healthy and happy throughout the Holiday season ahead and the winter months.
Do not forget about great nutrition and good satisfying vitamin-rich foods that should be on your plate. Organic produce is more expensive this time of the year, but I still encourage everyone to invest in some organic foods as often as possible and avoid processed and artificial food additives etc. (especially foods that you eat a lot of and you can’t peel).
So back to the party…
