Happy Halloween!

This is always a fun time of year, the weather starts to get cooler, the leaves change color and you get to break out the candy and cool decorations. I know some people who go all out on this particular holiday. They put out their best scary decorations and even build a life-like haunted cemetery or house.

This year I’m keeping it low key, with all of the suffering and chaos on the East coast because of Hurricane Sandy, I can’t see celebrating to the nines when some people don’t even have power or food. It also seemed like October came and went, we’re almost to the end and I haven’t had anything ready.
Well I do have one thing….

GLITTER PUMPKINS!!!

These are so easy to do, all you need is craft glue and glitter. Paint the pumpkins with glue, sprinkle the glitter on, shake off the excess and leave to dry overnight.

Halloween doesn’t have to be expensive either. Make a home made ghost costume out of an old bed sheet or black paper bat decorations like these.

Or throw some face masks, Michael’s has tons of them on sale right now, on pumpkins if you don’t feel like carving.

Happy Halloween everybody and I hope you have a spooktacular time whatever you may we doing on the 31st. Please stay safe and watch out for those small, candy eating goblins!

AL&T (Avocado, Lettuce and Tomato) My New Obession

Ahhh tomatoes, as Summer officially comes to a close this is the thing I will miss most: Heirloom tomatoes. I found a big, ripe, yellow one at my local farmer’s market a couple weeks ago. It was sitting there among other not so pretty ones that were either bruised, broken or scared. This particular tomato did not end up on my sandwich but another red, juicy one did. I made this recipe up while trying to find a way to incorporate some of my favorite things into a sandwich (I’m kind of big on those). Anyway, here is a totally healthy, totally delicious sandwich that I am sure you will love, just remember it is big so if you can’t finish it all….send it to me ;) jk, enjoy!

Recipe below

Tunes To Cook By

"Holocene" by Bon Iver
"Skinny Love" Bon Iver
"Dimming of The Day" Alison Krauss and Union Station

AL&T SANDWICH

- Two slices of wheat bread, toasted
- One Tablespoon Vegenaise
- One Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
- One big slice of an Heirloom Tomato (if you don’t have a big one you can use two small slices)
- 1/4 cup mixed greens
- 1/4 Avocado sliced
- Sea salt & pepper

First, toast the slices of bread. Then mix the vegenaise and Dijon mustard together until smooth. Spread the mixture evenly over the two slices of bread. Take your pre-washed greens and spread them over one side of the bread. Cut one, big slice of the Heirloom tomato, enough to cover the whole piece of bread and lay it on top of the greens. Give it a pinch of sea salt and pepper if you wish. Then cut the 1/4 avocado into slices, you should have about 4 or 5 slices when your done. Lay the avocado slices over the tomato and salt and pepper again. Lay the other piece of bread over the avocado and cut in half. Most importantly, enjoy!

Every Little Thing…

Hi all!

I am starting this blog to give you an inside look on everything that I am currently obsessed with. I have been traveling, exploring, living, performing and recently became a foodie (well vegan foodie that is) and now I want to share it with you!

Here you will find my ramblings on food, fashion, love of animals (especially Beagles), music and traveling. Think of it as Amy’s Pinterest. Btw if you aren’t on Pinterest you seriously need to be or not, it’s very addicting. Anyway, I hope you love this blog as much as I do, thanks for stopping by!

Let’s get things rolling…

So I just spent the weekend in Half Moon Bay, CA. Well only a day but it still felt like a weekend to me! Himself and I took a drive to Pescadero which is just down the way from Half Moon Bay, if you have never been you must go. Not only are the beaches beautiful but there is the cutest, little town I’ve ever seen and it’s going to be featured in this very first blog.

Half Moon Bay…..Isn’t she pretty?

Welcome to Pescadero…

This is a picture I took is the beginning of downtown. I’ve heard one of the best restaurants is Duarte’s which is the big, red building to the right of the picture. Also, I’ve heard they have amazing pies. I have to admit I picked one up for my family while I was here. Also, stop by the Pescadero Country Store for tasty sandwiches or Arcangeli’s Grocery Co. for really good Artichoke bread. That is what we did and had a picnic right across the street and the beautiful beach.

It’s not a very big town and at all, to be realistic everything you need to see is in one block. There are two really pretty, old churches I saw but only took a picture of one. If you’re ever in the area stop by and gaze at it in real time. It’s worth it!

 

So there you go, this was my view of Pescadero last weekend. I hope it inspires you to take a trip out to see it. It really is a lovely town. Hang around for the next chapter!

June Happenings Part 1

Summer is kicking off in a BIG way for Amy Gass! Just last week Amy was one of the main acts for the Summer Kickoff 2012, which was an all day event sponsoring the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. Amy and her band kicked off the festivities at noon and pumped up the crowd for the CaliFeugos and Whiskey Dawn. The setting was the Office Bar and Grill of San Carlos and boy did they throw an amazing event. From noon til almost 9pm there were everything from Margarita, Arnold Palmer and Beer booths to a fabulous BBQ and tons of free give a ways. There was even a raffle which sent some very lucky participants home with unbelievable loot! But this event just wasn’t for small town celebrities, Hank Baskett of the Minnesota Vikings showed up to share his emotional story about his father who is suffering from Lung Cancer. Over all it was an awesome event that raised a lot of money and awareness for this disease that is the #1 leading killer of women today, even surpassing breast cancer. Amy told our team “I was grateful they asked me to perform at this event. I have lost three members of my family to Lung Cancer so it hits home for me. They were taken from us way too soon and we miss them every single day. I’m glad there is a foundation like Bonnie J. Addario’s so that we can keep this disease in the forefront.”
