hello fall

September 17th, 2010

Well it’s not everyday that a tornado comes sweeping through New York City, but yesterday that was exactly the case. Aside from some branches down, our neighborhood seemed to fair much better than others close by, so for that I’m grateful. While I’m not thrilled about that kind of weather, I am pretty pumped to welcome fall back into my life. With it’s crisp temperatures and falling leaves, it’s my favorite season. In honor of the plethora of pears and other fall fruits that are making their to the market, I came up with this little number I call hello fall.

Cheers! To a great weekend ahead!

    Wow, that looks delicious. Definitely going to try it this weekend – perfect as we have a rosemary bush outside my house. Curious to find out how much you can taste the herb.
