{This Moment}

...Joining Amanda at SouleMama for {this moment}...
{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. 
A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
Peace, Yasmin

On This Day Of Thanks

My kids stated that we need to say our Thanks today and I replied that I say my thanks on a daily basis, maybe not aloud, but truthfully I do feel thankful for the life that I have every single day, even through the not so perfect times. Today I spent most of the day right where I am the happiest, in the kitchen.

Roasted Beets and the first snow of the season the day before Thanksgiving!

Waffles and Quiche for breakfast.

After Breakfast I took a walk with my sweetie and our pup, while my mom and the kids stayed in the warmth of the house watching the Macy's Day Parade. We had a ridiculously sunny day, but still quite chilly. We still have ice even though most of the snow has melted.
My mimosa in the fanciest glass ever.

Seeded Bread.

Pumpkin Soup.

Mashed Potatoes.
Roasted lemony garlic brussels sprouts.

Vegan mushroom gravy.

Cornbread stuffing.

Dinner is ready. That loaf is the Vegan Field Roast En Croute.


Pumpkin Pie and Apple Pie.

 Leftovers, oh yea.
It was a great day and I am kind of blissfully exhausted now, so time to relax and sleep.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
Peace, Yasmin

Best of Fall Part 2

At this point it feels more like Winter than Fall. Today's highs were only in the 30s, goodness me. I am not quite prepared for this and I definitely don't have enough wooly warmth for this degree of cold. Better get knitting, right? Anyways, I wanted to share some more of the Fall goodness that we have been experiencing.

Breakfast at our favorite local bakery. Hot chocolate for the kiddos and a chai charger for me, with a pretty design in the delicious foam.

Last soccer game of the season.

Hearty cold weather food. Cream of Tomato soup, Spinach mushroom feta quiche, Cheesecake Factory cheesecake (original & pumpkin), a delicious omelet for breakfast.

Lots of Lego play. The second picture was taken by Ashleigh, a child's view of Lego play...love it.

More hearty food, Apple pie, Banana Nut muffins, Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, Toasted pumpkin seeds, and Healing cabbage soup. Well time to get back to Dexter and more knitting.
Peace, Yasmin
