It's 25 degrees (-4C) and I could barely make it down to the market right outside of my apartment. It was so cold that I was dropping money, bags, keys and vegetables because my fingers were numb. However, after I came home and drank some honey water, I was warm enough to appreciate these winter beauties.
Listen to Pascal Parisot.
I've been eating a lot of egg white omelets lately. Make them with sprouts, slices of purple potatoes, collard greens or all of the above :) Saute the filling in some olive oil in a pan before adding the egg whites; that way the eggs won't stick to the pan and it will be easier to form the omelet.
I love minimalist art, especially pen and ink. When I was home for Thanksgiving I dug out my old ink and tips and started doodling. Here is what I came up with...I'm not so sure what to do with them now. I'm also pressing ginkgo leaves in books; maybe I'll combine the two!
To keep warm over the Thanksgiving break I made plenty of these comforting spiced lattes. Using real chai tea, almond milk and honey, it is the perfect way to stay warm throughout the winter.
1 chai tea bag
1-2c boiling water
1/2-3/4c almond milk
1 tsp honey
Fill a mug halfway with boiling water and let the tea steep for at least 5 minutes (until it is nice and strong). Meanwhile, bring almond milk to a boil. Once the milk begins to boil turn off the heat and froth using a simple frother. Froth the milk until it is very foamy and fluffy. Pour the milk into the mug, add honey, curl up in blanket and sip :)
I haven’t posted in a while because I haven’t cooked anything extravagant in a long time. I want to continue posting, but felt that I couldn’t since I hadn’t created any recipes. I’m going to expand Au Naturel to a blog that is more than just my recipes; I’d like to post photos, recipes and other artistic things that inspire me. I hope you will still come and visit.
