Little Bits of Random 3, Winter

I was going to do a Superbowl recipe roundup today but my dentist appointment ran long this morning, then there was the gym and subbing. Before I knew it it was late afternoon and going through all my bookmarked recipes felt like a lot of work.

Adding some photos to a post and coming up with short sentences to describe them sounded a lot more manageable and fun.

Little Bits of Random 3, Winter

juice prep

Trying to keep the winter germs at bay with fresh juices a couple of times a week. Finally nearing the end of my grapefruit stash.

My guilty winter pleasure. Please don’t judge. I love me some Bachelor.

My new haircut and my first attempt to curl my hair with a straightener. I know people have been doing this forever but I’m not very beauty savvy so it’s taken me a while to get with the trends. I’m not nearly as unhappy as I look. ūüôā

A lovely soy chai from Thinking Cup that I had earlier this week while meeting up with a new friend.

Sadly, I don’t have any good pictures of Michael that I haven’t already used in the last few posts.

He works too much! ūüė¶

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Enjoy and Exhale!

Little Bits of Random 3

If you missed past posts from this series see Little Bits of Random 1 and 2. These are a hodge podge of pictures that don’t fit into a specific blog post. It’s also a chance for me to share 100s of photos of my pets without feeling guilty because I warned you first!

Most of these pics are mine but some are courtesy of Will Pine. If you haven’t had a chance to¬†check out¬†his work¬†he’s the wonderful photographer that shot my yoga pictures.

Starting with a Will photo. Michael and me in the Commons.

Sarah walking in Copley Square. Love this shot.

I’m not sure what’s happening here. We had been waiting for a table at the Buttery for a long time and were getting delirious.

Two best friends lounging together.

Brothers lounging

Our living room all spruced up for the holidays.

Christmas 2012

This was a recipe from the sweet potato challenge that never made it but the fruit looks delectable.

Juicy Cutie

I love this grainy photo of our little family. We were trying to take a Christmas card picture but Eli and Guy weren’t having it.

A fountain in the Commons, can someone please tell me what these two children are doing?

This was the first photo we took back in September for my yoga photo shoot. I love that everyone in the background is completely unfazed. Gotta love New Yorkers.

A great pic of Will and Sarah.

Your kitty doesn’t read the Bhagavad Gita? Mine does!

Studious Kitty

While Will and Sarah were visiting Will insisted on a Duck Tour. This pretty much sums up the 90 minutes we spent on the tour.

Michael and Eli hard at work.

Love this face.

Guy

Hope you enjoyed a mostly non-food related glimpse of the past few months.

Happy Wednesday!

Little Bits of Random 3

In celebration of the weekend, I present Little Bits of Random 3.

We’ve been getting outside as much as possible lately to soak up the last of the warm temps and the stunning colors.

Fall colors are in bloom all over the city now.

Dusk on the river.

One very happy puppy after a long ball throwing session.

Guy loving up on Michael.

Family meeting.

Eli on his third run of the week in Jamaica Plains.

Have a lovely weekend.

Little Bits of Random 2 and a Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

This post was just titled Pumpkin Banana Smoothie but then Eli ate half my breakfast and the picture below is so priceless that I decided to do a little bits of random post dedicated to the pets.

I’m sorry I ate your bagel but you left it unattended lady. If I give you this look you’ll forgive me in 3 seconds right?

Me and Eli getting ready for a run.

Kitties need chapstick too.

And puppies need kisses.

Apparently this is what morning looks like in our bed.

And how Guy looks when held against his will.

 

Best friends!

And for those of you who want the pumpkin banana smoothie recipe here it is, super simple.

Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

1 frozen banana

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

3/4 cup almond milk

3-4 ice cubes

1 teaspoon ginger powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

dash of vanilla extract

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

Enjoy!

Little Bits of Random

I’ve never been one to take a ton of photos but since starting this blog I realize that that’s what most people want to look at so I should probably get my butt in gear and start taking more pictures.

This all seems like a great idea, but then you end up with 100s of random pictures that don’t fit into a specific blog post. So everyone once in a while I’m just going to post random photos that have no correlation whatsoever. ¬†Hope you don’t mind.

I present you with Little Bits of Random 1!

There’s a cat that lives at the corner store down the street. ¬†Most of the time he’s by the door to greet you when you come in. ¬†The other day we walked in and didn’t see him until he was spotted curled up in a box of candy on the counter.

Eli on a walk.

Morning wake up call.

Guy reading his Kindle. He was reading Before I Go To Sleep which is a weird but really interesting book.

Rainy day farmers market. So many sunflowers.

More fall foliage on my walk to yoga.

Lunch at Life Alive. I had their warrior bowl with red lentil hummus (must re-create soon), tofu, veggies and miso dressing.

Michael had the quinoa, brown rice, kale, avocado bowl with nutritional yeast and some kind of dressing that I can’t remember.

Carrot, fennel, ginger, lemon juice. If you haven’t tried fennel in your juice you should, it gives it a spicy flavor that goes really well with the ginger.

Last night’s pesto put to good use. Gluten-free pasta with pesto, steamed veggies and chickpeas.

Off for a run in the foggy, drizzly weather. Only 5 days until the Tuft’s 10k.

Have a great Wednesday.
