January So Far

I love January.  It's such an inspiring time of year and has the absolute best weather.  It's a shame I'm now spending some of the most beautiful days in an office, but there's still plenty you can do before 9am and after 5pm - you just have to do it, instead of talk about it.

How is your January going?

I am feeling very healthy these past couple of weeks, and the healthier I feel, the healthier I cook.

Last night's dinner was stif fried tofu, greens and rice noodles in a honey & black pepper marinade.  It was tasty.

M had an extra week of leave over me and made me this gorgeous salad with a piece of salmon one night.  Super tasty.
He also got me that gorgeous blue baking dish for Christmas.

Minestrone cravings hit when I returned from my beach trip.  A giant, giant pot followed and was consumed over the next 5 days.

Why can I cook?  Because my Mum can cook.
All hail Mum's AMAZING BEYOND WORDS Cassata.
I really can't tell you how good this is.

 I never shared my Christmas Kitties with you...

Munro did not want the Santa hat.

... nor did Buckley.

I love my kitties.

So far I have cleaned out my room and it's such a blank canvas I am overwhelmed, but it's exciting.  On the subject of blank canvases, I bought a few and some paint.  I am excited about that, too.

So really, tell me how your January's going?
Do you have great plans for 2013?
Remember, it's going to be a great year!  & my healthiest year yet...

Stay well,

  1. your two little munchkins are just gorgeous, I adore cats!

    I have been a big fan of your blog for awhile, so glad you are back posting again! your healthy food posts inspire me to think creatively about eating well!

  2. It is so much easier to eat healthily in the summer time. My body just loves eating vegies! But i'm not sure how i account for the excess ice cream consumption... your mum's cassata looks divine!
