I spent a few days in NYC in the fall of 2012. I loved seeing the city in the fall. I was able to go explore, take pictures and I even had a little “You’ve Got Mail” moment visiting a bookstore, drinking coffee and taking in the sights of New York in the fall.
We turned the corner of Greenwich Street and saw the most beautiful sight. A Whole Foods adorned with a pumpkin pyramid in the front. I was so excited, we went in and picked up dinner. We had the most amazing soup and I knew I had to remake this Whole Foods inspired soup. I had great success and I think it was one of the best things I found in NYC.
As September 11th just passed, I am reminded of the Stephen Siller Run we ran in honor of all those that died on that tragic day. I never cried so much in a race and it was one of the most emotional moments of my life. Meeting survivors, seeing family of loved ones lost and hearing people cheer for NYC Fire and rescue teams as we ran past them. #NeverForget
I recently began using Primal Palates Apple Pie Spice instead of Cinnamon, Awesome addition!
