Incorporate some tropics into the winter blahs

The holiday season is over.  Football season is over (at least for many of us- boo hoo ..) This is the time of year that many of us have issues with dark, cold and gloomy weather.  This is such a long stretch until the birds start chirping and the trees start to sprout first blooms.  Of course the best solution to this dilemma is to jet off to Hawaii.

OK. Back to reality.

Sometimes it just is not practical to take a big trip to the tropics, so what to do when weeks of cold rain brings gloomy days? You know when your cozy bed in the morning just seems like a more logical place to spend your day rather than being a productive member of society?

I have a solution.

Get yourself a nice beach blanket and spread it on the living room floor.  Get out the blender and mix up a nice tropical drink- with or without the booze- just make sure their is something such as coconut, mango, papaya or anything else that feels like the tropics to you.  Make sure you put it in a nice fancy glass with an umbrella. (If you don’t have a stash of little umbrellas, order some right now! It’s a necessity!)

OK- next step- and this is VERY important.  Contact Garlic Jim’s and order a Gourmet Hawaiian pizza.  This pizza will instantly transport you from gloominess to happiness. Garlic Jim’s signature amazing hand tossed crust is a beautiful vessel for vine ripened tomato sauce, savory Canadian bacon, fruity pineapple, almonds and- wait for it- coconut!  Trust me (and you can always trust Olive) this pizza will have you thinking that you are on a sandy beach somewhere.

Try placing your beach blanket near a heater vent and then close your eyes while you are biting into your pizza.  You will swear you are sitting under a palm tree feeling an ocean breeze.

Bye- Bye Winter Blahs!

Ciao for now!
