Sunday Morning Reads

Seems the air quality in the Bay Area is slowly getting back to normal – and the sun is out – which has me wondering if I should step outdoors and do a bit of walking along the coast. Which is my normal routine on Sundays except the past three weeks or so – due to the poor air quality as a result of the Napa/Sonoma fires. But it is a slow start – meaning to say, I naturally got online with my cup of mint green tea and found these to share – with those intending to have a lazy Sunday:

Monday Recipe: Pasta with Yogurt and Caramelized Onion

First glimpse of misty mornings, possible long overdue rain in the city, and I decided on Pasta for dinner tonight while commuting to work this early morning. I do love the time change though, because it makes my favorite part of the day, dawn, much more visible from the train-ride to downtown. Anyway, back to the recipe. With my family’s meditterean roots, we often use yogurt  for cooking. Yes even in the winter months. So  when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it, not once second-guessing how good the combination of ingredients would taste. So for dinner tonight we will have pasta with yogurt and caramelized onions, paired with a wonderful red of course. Happy Monday! {Source}
