Leggings & stockings for this winter

What better way to keep our toes & legs warm and toasty by wearing fun and colorful leggings & stockings.

On walkways in Paris, Milan & NY eye catching leg wear was hard to miss. Colorful tights were worn by short ankle length socks, and there where rhinestones, and fishnets peeking through long flowing winter jackets.

Fall and Pumpkins

This beautiful fruit got its name Pumpkin from the Greek word  “pepino” for “large melon.” and Native Americans called it “Isqoutm squash.” More than 40 varieties Pumpkins can come in many colors, shapes, and sizes. We love Fall not only for the cool temperatures, and beautiful foliage, but because once a year we can feast our eyes on baskets, buckets, and towers of pumpkins every where we go.🍁

Seasonal eating is so much healthier for us. Not only we notice craving for seasonal fruits and vegetables, but we tend to use them more as ingredients for our meals.

Potatoes, parsnips, sweet potatoes,  carrots, broccoli, brussels sprouts, zucchini, onions, bell peppers, cabbage, winter squash, sweet chard, turnips, mushrooms just a small list of vegetables soon in season, and full of flavor if purchased from local vendors.

Visit your local farmer’s markets for the freshes seasonal vegetables

To feed our family we hear less complaines if vegetables are roasted.

We follow these steps:

1- cut the veggies

2- preheat the oven 425°

3- olive oil

4- salt & pepper

5- don’t crowd them

to get evetything crisp and kid friendly roast these veggies together:

zucchini, summer squash, bell peppers, 10 to 20 minutes

asparagus, green beans, 10 to 20 minutes

broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, 15 to 25 minutes

beets, potatoes, carrots together for , 30 to 45 minutes.

butternut squash, acorn squash, 20 to 60 minutes.

Now just hoping for, cooler more fallish weather 🍁

Accessory  trends: bold was better with oversized jewelry, dangling earrings, and strappy leather belts.
