Share with thy neighbors

Pomegranates have invaded my life and I’m loving it.

When you are fortunate enough to be showered with pomegranates, then you shall share the wealth and share with thy neighbors.  These pomegranates have been and will be shared with friends and family.  I’m going to be baking a lot this holiday season and sending my healthy treats and goodies everywhere. Spreading the love.

DSC_1053a I am the master of opening pomegranates now. Unlike the first time I opened my very first one,  my kitchen looked like a crime scene. After the 10th and then the 20th pomegranate, I finally got the hang of it.

Look ma, no mess 🙂

My breakfast this morning was quinoa cooked in coconut milk. Topped with coconut flakes + pomegranate arils.

Then topped with a  little crunch from granola.

I made my own sweetened toasted coconut by mixing flaked coconuts with maple syrup. Toasting it until it lightly browned, about 6 minutes.

It’s good to change up breakfast once in awhile, especially with seasonal fruits.

I have been searching for my Ugly Christmas Sweater the last few days. The party is tonight. I went to different stores (Goodwill stores, Kohl’s and Walmart) and I was very disappointed in the selection. The grey wool sweater made me itchy just looking at it but I still tried it on for fun.

Thank you for those of you who commented and sent me online links to ugly sweater stores. We should do a virtual ugly sweater party where readers can submit the ugliest sweater they can find or own. Doesn’t that sound fun? Anyone interested?

When I was at Kohl’s, someone wrote a message for me 🙂

If I’m going to another ugly sweater party, I will consider ordering online and I will definitely have more time to buy supplies and make my own. But alas, here’s a sneak peak of my ugly sweater for tonight.

IMG_0207a I really didn’t think it was going to be hard, because when you don’t need an ugly sweater, they seem to be readily available.

Have a good weekend. As for me, I have fun plans this weekend with friends. My weekend plans will also include something very exciting and special that is wedding related.

  1. Haha.. I can’t wait to see the pictures! Have fun 🙂

  2. Oh my gosh- I can’t wait to see the ugly sweater pics!!

  3. I love our shared love for pomegranates right now!

  4. Ha that hilarious. I wish someone would leave me a message. Our supermarkets have not been stocking pomegranate (or extremely bruised and not tasty looking ones…) and it is really ruining my cooking jive.

    Awww that sweater isn’t ugly it has a kitty on it. 😦 lol I’m an animal lover hence part of the reason why I decided to go Vegan. Take that comment back! lol

    Well have so much fun tonight and Quinoa and even Couscous for Breakfast is a great alternative to oatmeal I think it’s even double healthier.

    Enjoy and take pictures I can’t wait to see them. LOL I’m laughing already.

  6. Im VERY jealous of your ugly sweater party, as lame as that may sound.

    Dude, I think you should just be the POM spokesperson because you might turn into a pomegranate soon! Have a fun weekend and I too look forward to some funny ass pics!

  7. Have fun at your ugly sweater party! Remember to at least wear cute shoes/boots =)

    Can’t wait to hear about the wedding stuff ..yippee!

  8. Wow! Those are a lot of pomegranates! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
