2021 New Rochelle Turkey Trot Race !

I was a sponsor in 2019, and once again this year and I have to say, I truly enjoyed being there and participating (by taking photos) at this wonderful event. It was the only race on Thanksgiving Day in the area, and people attended fofrm the Island far and wide since they were visiting their family members. GREAT T-Shirts!

From Michael Conlon – the founder and Director : “The New Rochelle Turkey Trot is back. After missing last year’s race due to COVID-19 we are extremely optimistic that this year’s race will be bigger, better and of course, safer than ever. The past year and a half has been very difficult for all of us but we are very excited to host the 2021 New Rochelle Turkey trot so we can once again support our local community. As you may recall, Giving You More Miles Inc, is a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to raise money for local charities in New Rochelle and Westchester County. 

The New Rochelle Turkey Trot has become a family and community focused event. In 2019, over 1800 participants (90% local) toed the start line in the beautiful historic district of New Rochelle allowing us to donate over $25,000 to our charity partners. Our hope is that our race becomes an annual tradition where families and friends gather to inspire our kids and young adults in order to help those who are less fortunate, but we need your help. 

We are now just two weeks away from the 2021 New Ro Turkey Trot and we want to make this year’s race our most successful one yet. As of this moment, we have 776 athletes registered (for the record, on this date in 2019, we only had 682 registered so we are officially “winning”).


Join us in starting the Holiday Season off right with a family fun 5K Run & Walk, Kid’s Mile Race and Tot Trot. All levels of competition are welcome! All proceeds from the New Rochelle Turkey Trot will be donated to local charities. Register today at www.newroturkeytrot.org.

“It’s Okay To Walk in the Rain” A Children’s Book about Helping with small Anxieties by Gay Rosen

Perfect for the Holiday stocking! Pre-order now in time for the Holidays!

My pooch, BINKY, is a rescue dog, and like us all, has his foibles. Binky hated walking the rain. Perhaps it was because he was found starved and near death on the streets but whatever the reason, this was his nemesis! I decided one day to write a children’s book about him, and it is currently being published! It is about facing your anxieties, and hopefully this will help a child somewhere with their small trepidations.

The book is available four pre-order on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Its-Okay-Walk-Rain-Rosen/, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones (England) , IPG Reimaging Book Distribution, BookBaby.com, BookDepository.com, BAM, William DAM Boghandel (Danish), , and so many stores around the globe!

The Illustrator! Milan Samadder

Or, you can reach out to me for your autographed copy ! Binky autographs the book too!

Playing with Your Food

Does anyone else play with their food or is it just me? When I was very young, I would make rivers through my mashed potatoes with the gravy (made from Bisto) , pile the greens around the mashed potatoes and eat a little of that mountain range, then some potatoes and gravy and slowly eat my dinner. I guess I was trying to make it interesting. My mom (mum) would make a variety of vegetables. She always did that, and the meat portion would never be large, but we would have a variety of greens with dinner, and only now do I appreciate how healthy that all was. My mom would also place our dessert dish in front of our dinner plate, and tell us that we could only eat our ‘afters’ until we ate our ‘befores’. as she would call it. I think also that I would play with my food as it wasn’t so tasty? English food has vastly changed now, but when I grew up, English food had a much and well deserved reputation for being bland. I don’t think any longer since we have so many great chefs in England. Although I was rather surprised when I was viewing an older episode of “The Great British Bake Off” and the contestants didn’t know how to make a pizza sauce and topping.

A meat stew would be the meat, water, vegetables. My sister and I would add A1 sauce, and try to change the taste . We would save the dumpling to have as a dessert with jam. I would love to watch my father eat when he came home, He would add the salt and pepper in such a way that it always looked so appetizing. I loved how my older sister would fry potatoes with onions. So tasty. I loved it when my father made roast chicken as it was tastier with that salt and pepper.

If I really liked something- say a certain jam. My mom would give me a spoon and the jar. I soon tired of that jam. Never to eat again. Not sure why she did that but it worked for that food choice. Not sure if that was nice but there you have it. I was always so skinny too (a distant memory!). My mom would give my older sister cod liver oil (yuk), and she would give me malt extract which was delicious. Of course I now take cod liver oil capsules as it is good for lowering blood pressure. So funny how we come full circle.

When my children were younger, I would make food faces . I always thought that if the food looked fun and interesting then they will want to eat it! Perhaps a result of my childhood!

So, from playing with food, evolved into the love of cooking and I would like to think being creative.

Bottom line, it is okay to play with your food! Now that I sell real estate, I try to bring some creativity into marketing my listings!

Westchester is great!
