Seasonal Inspiration

This week had seasonal queues all over the place. First, we noticed the site-specific Tree Huts by Tadashi Kawamata. These interesting explorations in canopy space are probably one of the last outdoor art pieces in the city before the temperature drops too low.

Second, Sophie is now asking for her coat — it’s much too cold for her to go outside with only her thin layer of hair.

Third, there was an Apple Day in the Lower East Side today. It was an eco-conscious street fair with green-themed propaganda being handed out and apples sold in every other booth. Since the weather was blustery, we didn’t stay for the festival very long.

Lastly, we had several great meals with seasonal ingredients! First up was a hearty corn bread with chocolate chips. A slice went perfectly with the butternut squash and sausage over penne Sharon whipped up.

To keep us warm with desert, we also had some cinnamon cupcakes with chile-chocolate buttercream. The subtle heat from the chile powder mixed into the sweet topping is a perfect pairing.

    Each delicious bite
    I think I need a cigarette
    And more cupcakes for tonight.”
