Photos from the ‘rents

by Meghann on October 15, 2010

When I came home last night I had approximately 8 things in my fridge.

  • Vanilla Yogurt
  • Cantaloupe <— Breakfast
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Blue Cheese
  • Almond Milk
  • Eggs
  • One Apple

Luckily I was able to take 4 of those things and pack a lunch for work today. 🙂


I massaged the kale with some balsamic vinegar and olive oil then topped it with blue cheese, carrots, and chopped dates.


A simple, easy salad that was surprisingly filling. My body thanked me for all the lovely nutrients it was getting from the kale. 🙂

With the salad I packed some Sweet Potato Chips (forget the brand, but it was BOGO at Publix last week).


And an Apple that I didn’t end up eating.



Earlier I had some mixed nuts as a snack.


What the ‘Rents have been up to…

While I was in Chicago – and then in Myrtle Beach – my parents were vacationing with my Aunt & Uncle in Tennessee. My Mom has been updating Facebook regularly with a gazillion photos of their trip (Love you Mom!), so I thought it would be fun to share a few with you. Just looking at these photos screams FALL to me and immediately makes me want to go put on some flannel and go out and carve a pumpkin… or at least make pumpkin pie. 😉


Happy Fall!

LOL – the Corn Tub. Your parents remind me of mine, now that they are empty nesters they keep hanging out with friends and relatives more, and doing really fun stuff (without inviting me!). Haha!

I love the ‘bottom of the fridge’ meals! It reminds me of some kind of Masterchef challenge!
The pics are cool, love the one of the guys drinking coffee on the deck – what an absolutely stunning view!

Yea, Corn Tub is a new notion for me. It’s like a ball pit, for farm folk? I like it! Can’t get enough of the fall love.
