I started the week off with a bang, and I’m ending it on one too!
The weather was fantastically Fall-like last night, so I threw open all the windows and doors, and slept to the sounds of the cicadas.
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know that I frequently give shout outs to my beloved cicadas. True, they’re disgusting insects that most people loathe, but to me, they’re the sounds of summer and actually lull me to sleep!
This morning’s Mom walk was perfectly crisp as well and afterwards I got down on an insane breakfast combo - Tropical Greek Yogurt Parfait.
How about a Pineapple Chobani Greek Yogurt topped with a juicy mango and crunchy Nature’s Path Pumkin Flax Plus Granola?!
Ding, ding, ding!!!
omg I can’t even… Ok. This was amazing. Tropical, creamy and I adore that crunchy granola. If you haven’t given mangoes a try because you’re unsure as to how to cut them – check out my How To Cut a Mango tutorial. It’s so easy – I promise!
More food in bowls – Sweet Corn Soup and Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels for lunch!
Gosh this soup is good. It’s one of those soups that you could add anything to, and it’d make it even better. Have some zucchini or squash? Add those puppies right in. Sun-dried tomatoes? Sure, why not? The more, the merrier!
I like to season simple soups like this with a TON of pepper. It totally pops.
The stash of peanut butter filled pretzels that my in-laws sent me is dwindling quickly. Probably becuase, cough, a certain husband of mine, cough, can’t keep his paws out of the bag. Cough!
Is it noon yet?
I think we’re supposed to get some storms later today, which I feel is only fair since it’s been so wonderfully wonderful here lately. I wouldn’t hate it – as long as it stops before 5:00pm. I forsee a nice run and perhaps a cold beverage enjoyed on a patio in my future this evening?!
Do you keep a stash of “just for me” foods at your house? Items that others are “encouraged” not to touch?
Mine includes chocolate. You never touch a woman’s chocolate stash without expecting to face consequences!
