Greenery - Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year found in my closet!
In keeping with the spirit of my fashion blogging, I'm hope to stay current by adopting fashionable colors;
and by utilizing items I already own.
Sometimes the newest styles dont suit my body type.
Hence, accessorizing with the palette becomes not just a way to organize but also a way to prioritize.
This Franklin Covey satchel has served me well over the past several years by keeping office documents organized.
Today I may empty it and use it in place of my everyday handbag.
How are you incorporating *Greenery* into your style?
PS That's Madame Golovin painted by my mother, who was copying Elizabeth Vigee-LeBrun's work.

Grease and flour a large tube pan.
In it arrange 24 1-oz frozen Parker House rolls.
Mix together the following dry ingredients and sprinkle over the rolls:
1 3-3/4 oz butterscotch pudding mix (NON INSTANT)
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Evenly distribute 1/2 cups chopped pecan over rolls.
Pour 1/2 cup melted butter over everything.
Allow bread to rise overnight (or 8 hrs). No need to cover pan.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes.
Let pan rest for 5 minutes before turning out onto a large dish with a lip, so the sauce wont run over the edges.
There are never any leftovers of this holiday breakfast item.

After roasting and pureeing, here are the top ten ways I've enjoyed pumpkin and its flavoring ~ links, if available
really easy to fix, and I generally leave out the milk/cream
2) roasted seeds
freeze well, and a treat to add to salads
DD#4 prepared a noteworthy version this year
bought some cookie bars at the grocery store this year
bought one from my favorite bakery this year
received some as a gift this year
too easy to buy the Cheesecake Factory version at BJs
8) frappe (pictured)
low-calorie, nutritious meal replacement
coffee, vanilla protein powder, and Torani pumpkin syrup
10) ice cream
Turkey Hill brand tastes delicious alone or a la mode
PS I use Libby's canned pumpkin mostly, but insist on freshly roasted, pureed for my soup.
PPS Bonus link to DD#2's recipe for pumpkin bread ;-)

hews the hue from pith and peel
to sublimate the color wheel
refracted in sun-speckle drops
like lemon macaroons. It sops
up the palate's palette cake
and engineers a prism break
above entablatures of trees
to slip into the backdrop frieze
and coalescent with the light
cleave itself from human sight.
