My sister and I planned a trip to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania this past weekend–nerdy mini road trip to watch the prognostication of the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil. I was all ready to write an article about the hailed groundhog’s living conditions and how the associated hullabaloo impedes on his natural existence… while partaking in the sociological phenomenon and small-town lore of the holiday, which had a dawn to dusk schedule of events. But several snow travel advisories, both in Punxsutawney and in New York, had thwarted our plans.

So lunch for the work week wouldn’t be peanut butter and jelly sandwiches after all. It was time to make lemonade out of lemons. Starting with soaking some cashews.IMG_4487

I picked up these gorgeous blue yams from Haymaker’s Corner Store. They’d be part of a very colorful lunch.  IMG_4489

With Valentine’s day looming, I made heart-shaped mini omelets (from Isa Does It) with roasted asparagus “cupid’s arrows.” IMG_4494

Then I took a triple selfie because–heck, who knows. IMG_4444
