First up, the Photography Challenge! I’m having a problem finding time to take pictures during daylight hours. I might have to start taking my photos on the weekend when I have more natural light to work with. That’s photography 101, right?
DAY 4 – Something Green
I was looking all over for a green subject to take pictures of. And then I realized what the perfect item would be. My sprouting chives!! I definitely don’t have a green thumb, but I’m told chives are easy to maintain, so I’m giving it a shot. New chutes are coming up and I’m so excited!
My herbs may be a sign of spring, but it actually poured in Los Angeles today. I was so sad I couldn’t ditch work in favor of some puddle jumping. The first rain of fall is always an exciting moment here in California. I was giddy when I heard it on my window when I woke up.
And now that fall has officially decided to join us here, I’m hoping it will stick around for a while. I love fall. The rain, Halloween, sweaters and cozy weekends. It’s also football season. Sometimes I put the games on just to hear the commentators. Football reminds me of home when Sunday Football was the thing to do on the weekends. I’m from Boston. Sports are a religion.
We need a team in LA, don’t you think?
Being the official sport of America… Football = FOOD. (Tell me I’m not the only one who gets excited for Superbowl purely for the buffalo dip and nachos that go with it!) But football doesn’t have to equal calories. There are smart ways of indulging without resorting to carrot sticks and water.
Here are a few snack ideas for your next big game:

Oh, it’s pretty hard to top RoTel cheese dip! Bad, bad, but so good!
Pizza and Beer…
I’m boring, but I like chips and pizza. =P
And good job with the herbs… I can’t grow anything to save my life. =(
