Kombusha Squash, Sweet Potato & Turmeric Soup

Kombusha Squash, Sweet Potato & Turmeric Soup

Hello Gorgeous! Oh, how I have missed you. With the November cold in the air I just want to curl up with Ally and eat some yummy soup. Although, NYC seems to have manic weather. It can't decide if it wants to be full blown fall or an indian summer. 


Halloween came and went and Ally and I successfully survived our first NYC Halloween. It's no secret I have never been much of a fan of Halloween. I see it more as the pit stop from summer to Thanksgiving that we all have to suffer through.  Perhaps having a small child will change my mind but so far... nope. 

Ally and I walked up to a row of town houses near Park Avenue where they blocked off the road for the kiddies. The decorations where a hoot but the crowd was astonishing. There were actual lines to get candy and once ally and I got to the front all the candy-hander-outers kept giving him the crap candy because he was such a little guy and wouldn't know the difference. Sheesh! I had to wrestle a man wearing a Ghostbusters costume just to get big A a Jolly Rancher sucker. We literally stole the sucker and headed for the sunset before anyone was the wiser. 



He enjoyed his treat as we walked home...a little bit bruised but happy. 

Excuse the blurring images but it's not the easiest feat to get a toddler to stand still among a crowded NYC halloween extravaganza!
