So yeah……….PUMPKIN!!!!!!!! 🙂
I think like 750 of you love, love, love pumpkin the fall and that’s totally awesome. I am just loving reading all your responses for the giveaway! Remember, you have two more hours (or actually, a little less!) so leave me a message on my morning post with your favorite fall/winter veggie and you will be entered to win a copy of Clean Food. I’ll announce the winner in my breakfast post tomorrow!
I hope y’all have had great days. I’ve sort of been up and down…going to my brother’s school was difficult….for me, grief comes in waves and I heard some news I didn’t really want to hear, which was difficult. However, a pumpkin spice latte (and new library book!) was exactly what the doctor ordered! 🙂
This is The Tsarina’s Daughter by Carolly Erickson. Call me crazy, but I have this weird fascination with the Russian Revolution. I wrote a really long term paper on it in college and read about it like its going out of style. Strange, but true. I hold this insane theory that the royal family never really all died and that there’s some mystery still out there to be discovered. I’m a total history nerd like that though. Don’t get me started on the World Wars….I’ll talk your ear off for hours.
Anyways! When I got home from running errands I made some 100 cal kettle corn
I was so excited to break into THIS for dinner!
Yes, I ate potatoes from a bag and totally loved them. The lovely Lia sent me these “Swiss hash browns” straight from the Alps and, as we all know, everything is better in Europe so of course these potatoes rocked my socks off!!!!!! We also had that delish maple blueberry chicken I told you about and a small salad with hummus and hot sauce!
I know y’all want the recipe but unfortunately it’s straight out of The Maple Syrup Cookbook!!!! I can’t reproduce it on the blog because of copyright issues but know that it is awesome and utilizes tons of pure maple syrup, a pint of fresh blueberries and a whole CUP of red wine! So, so, so good….I stuffed myself silly with goodness and washed it all down with MORE red wine!
Dessert was an unphotographed amount of Swiss dark chocolate. Wow, I’ve totally had a Swiss night! Thank you so much, Lia!!
Bubble bath + book + my bed 🙂
