mosaic monday

hello, hello! how was your weekend? ours was fairly relaxing-- staying in from the cold as much as possible. today has proven to be similar, as i only ventured out for a hot yoga class this morning. (nothing feels better on a shivery day.) am munching on hot-from-the-oven granola and browsing through photos as i type.


this weekend the amaryllis began to bloom. i had forgotten what color it was-- the cheery red (pink?) and white stripe are just what i need for the last week in january. i modified a couple of recipes for a chocolate orange marble loaf cake, just enough for a small dinner party. french press coffee and a broccoli cheddar frittata were the perfect start to saturday.

ps. it is standard that this time of year that i begin to crave a tropical trip. do chime in if you're wearing flipflops and sundresses, i would love to live vicariously!
