Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

Jennifer Avventura My Sardinian Life (2)

The Weekly Photo Challenge asks for “The Hue of You,” and instead of using a photo of stunning Sardinia, I decided to Andy Warhol myself. My hue is on the top-right, I love greens and purples.

I just may print this and give it to Hub for Christmas. 😉

What is your hue?

10 things you didn’t know about me

  1. I studied Thai kick boxing, Jiu-Jitsu, karate, Jeet Kune Do and have a white belt in all four, watch out!

  3. I studied lyrical jazz for 15 years and loved it, till I broke my ankle (see #2.)
  4. My first job was delivering Sears catalogs; Christmastime sucked. My second job, I was a chambermaid, where everyday pretty much sucked. My third job was a waitress at a local sports bar which didn’t suck at all!

  6. I can do the splits, both ways (see #1).

  8. I have super-sonic hearing and can watch a program in Italian, listen to my friends rattle on in Gallurese and hear the kitten mew down the street and, understand everything.
  9. After 18 years I can see my natural blonde locks, and I don’t like it.

From the Sardinian recipe box: Gigantic Zucchini … Bread

Zucchini Bread by Jennifer Avventura 2013 (1)A friend who lives 3km down the curvy mountain road cultivates her own vegetables: eggplant, tomatoes, every herb known to man and gigantic zucchini. Each and every year her surplus is big and beautiful and this year I’m able to taste the fruits of her labor.
