An Early Taste of Fall

by Meghann on September 9, 2010

Totally burnt the popcorn at work this afternoon

Yep, I was one of those people.

That’s what I get for popping an expired bag of popcorn that still looked deflated when it was done. FYI: a deflated bag is still a fully popped bag. Oh well.

I was mentally preparing my meals for the rest of the week when it dawned on me that this week only has one day left in it. I keep forgetting that today is Thursday and tomorrow is Friday. This short week has really flown by!

Tonight’s dinner was simple, delicious, and took advantage of the plethora of veggies I have in my fridge.

I roasted a parsnip, carrot, 1/2 a beet, mushrooms, and okra for 15 minutes at 420 degree in the oven with a little salt and pepper.

While those were roasting I had a pan of chickpeas doing the same thing in a pan right above them. Only the chickpeas had been coated with a little evoo, chili pepper, and salt.

A side of microwavable wild rice.

I brought everything together with some north carolina bbq sauce, pumpkin seeds, and raisins.

I should have took a photo of everything all mixed up because that’s how I really ate it and enjoyed every bite. This meal reminded me of fall and had me really excited about it! 🙂

Dessert this evening came in the form of an Attune Chocolate Bar and a YumUniverse Fruit Leather from the HLS swag bag.

The fruit leather tasted just like a fruit roll-up. It was fruity, sticky and apparently can be easily made at home. I’ll have to follow the instructions on the packaging and check out YumUniverse.com to find out how. 😉

Daydreamer

September 9, 2010

I was dreaming of my lunch all morning. The Apple, Brie, and Honey Pizza I made last night was easily one of the best things I have ever made and I had high hopes for the left overs of it waiting for me in the fridge. The crust was still chewy, the toppings we still more »

One Determined Wedding Guest

September 9, 2010

Get ready for it…   I guess I was more determined then I had originally thought in catching that bouquet. 😉 I think what’s even better is realizing how no one else is even trying for the bouquet. All the ladies seem to be just looking on with shock and aww. They’re probably thinking “Who more »
