Fruits, Vegetables, Miracles

First of all – I totally forgot to post the winner this morning.

So..thanks to that random number generator, we have…


p.s. my favorite thing about fall is taking a walk on those cool, brisk days then coming home to a warm cup of apple cider or hot chocolate


Congrats to Holly! Email me so I can get your address and send some fun things your way :)

And thanks to everyone who entered – I loved reading all of YOUR favorite things about fall. I wish this season would last for 6 months instead of just 2, but oh well.


Breakfast this morning did NOT include pumpkin! Surprised?


I had fruit this morning instead of a veggie.


I really wanted some apple oats this morning, and it goes so well with almond butter that I decided to go without pumpkin today.

Good decision :)

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • 1 local apple, diced and microwaved for 1 minute with cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter


This bowl of oats, along with about 3 cups of our Honduras coffee has kept me working, working, working this morning.

And then I had a lunch errand failure. I need to send back a new quilt we bought, so I swung by the UPS dropbox in town (after looking for it for a good 10 minutes) and the box was too big for the dropbox! Fail.

Wasted half of my lunch break for nothing. Now I get to take it to a regular store tomorrow and finally get it mailed back. Don’t you hate that?

But Maggie had fun on her short car ride with me, and it got us both out of the house for a few minutes, so it wasn’t a totally wasted trip.

And lunch was just waiting for me when I got back!


A huge, mixing bowl salad, full of veggies!


Today’s mix:

  • romaine
  • spinach
  • scallion
  • carrot
  • tomato from our garden! Probably one of the last
  • 1/2 local Asian pear
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • homemade balsamic-dijon dressing


I’m trying so hard to savor our tomatoes. We have a few more on the plants that are green so we might get a couple more this season, but I’m so sad that tomato season is coming to an end! I do love fall, but you can’t beat summer tomatoes.


Mags is at my feet – time to get back to work!

PS: Football is on tonight :) Happy Thursday!!!

Come on, 5 pm…

  6. The oatmeal looks delicious! As well as the salad- very fruity and fresh :)

  7. I loved your dog’s expression in that last pic!
    We just ate through our last tomatoes too, though apparently a canning party happened before I got back – I guess I can still enjoy summer sun, albeit in mason glass form!

  8. Love the sounds of apples in your oats–I have a hard time choosing a fall favorite…apples or pumpkins? Hmm..
