Pink Saturday Scooter
When my husband and I were driving home from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade last week (which you can read about by clicking on the highlighted words) we saw this wonderful pink Vespa scooter parked on a street in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan! If you have ever visited Italy you'll know that this is the vehicle of choice in many cities, especially Florence and Rome, but it is a rare sight to see in New york City!
Of course when I saw it I yelled out "Pull over! Pink Saturday!" almost as a reflex, and then jumped out of the car to take these photos.
Wouldn't you love to tool around NYC on this pretty pink number? I would -- but I'd make sure to stay on the quiet side streets!
Beverly asked that we share a favorite holiday recipe today so please click on this link if you'd like to see a post I did two years ago about my favorite Christmas cookies. I make them every year!

I'm also having a give away for a 2.2 pound Jacques Torres dark chocolate "Big Daddy" bar on this post.
