Friday Love List

"The great thing about fashion is that it is always looks forward," 
- Oscar de la Renta

We lost such a great talent this week. Oscar De La Renta was always one of my favourite designers to watch. From looking at pictures of his designs on Jackie Kennedy, to eagerly anticipating current red carpets for his work, he always impressed. He will be greatly missed.

In the spirit of the quote above, let's move forward and talk about my fav things this week:

The perfect Fall fashion accessories

Being totally honest here - summer is NOT my favourite fashion season. I'm just not a fan of shorts. Seriously I can count on my hand the number of times I've worn shorts since I was 14. But Fall, now that is a season I can get on board with. The layers, the cozy sweaters the rich colours - sign me up. 

Here are a few of my must haves this season:

Icone Slim Ankle Zip Pant
Tech-Stretch Glove

Easy Orzo Carbonara

Sunday Night - a new week is looming and I can't help but start running to do lists in my mind. Cooking always helps calm me down.

This Sunday I thought I would tackle a new recipe, Orzo Carbonara.

I'm sharing it because it was easy and it's super yummy!

What you need:

6 oz of Bacon - cut into 1/2" pieces*
1/2 cup of Whipping Cream
5 cups of Low Sodium Chicken Stock 
                       - make sure you use low sodium or instead use less stock and more water
1 cup of Grated Parmesan
1 pound of Orzo
2 tablespoons of Butter
2 pinches of Thyme

*I substituted Turkey Bacon it works just fine but you may need to add a bit more butter

How you make it:
  1. Cook the bacon until crispy
  2. Set the cooked bacon aside, reserve one tablespoon of the fat
  3. Cook the butter until just brown, about 2 minutes
  4. Add the orzo and 4 1/2 cups of stock
  5. Cook the orzo until the stock is almost absorbed but don't let the orzo overcook
  6. Add the whipping cream and bring to a simmer
  7. Add Parmesan, Thyme and season with salt and Pepper as desired
  8. You can add the additional of stock as desired.
The Finished Product!
