It was just a few degrees above freezing when we all woke up from a harsh night sleep this morning : 3 out of 4 of us seem to have caught our first seasonal bug. Poor super dad, my angel, stayed home to help me manage it all. When we realized that crankiness levels were reaching a certain point of general dissatisfaction, we decided to head outside. I always tell my daughter : bugs don’t like the cold… so let’s go breathe in some cold air!
The sun was shinning, our breath heavy in the air, pushing white clouds above our heads. Colors are not in full spectrum yet, but the intensity is definitely coming. Little peeks of bright neon colors marked our path as we managed a few giggles and smiles through the runny noses and fatigue. It would take more than a cold to keep me inside on a day like this.
Also wanted to share 2 recipes we found that were simply delicious and that we have added to our pantry this year : Roasted tomatillo salsa verde and Asian plum sauce. In both, we omitted the onion and garlic. The flavors were still amazing. Now to make homemade egg rolls and black bean enchiladas… Yummy, it’s gonna be a good winter!
