Today was definitely a Fall day! I tried my first Apple Pie Lara Bar- I like Lara Bars when I eat them, but I am not huge on bars in general. This cinnamon-spicy-goodness held me over through our errands.
When we got home, I worked on those dreadful thank you cards and worked on some meal prep. I am going out of town starting Wednesday morning and I wanted to make enough healthy meals to last through the week. If left to his own devices, hubby would do just fine, but I like to leave him prepared. Here was the final result:
I came up with a couple of recipes tonight and I'll post them over the next couple of days- the suspense must be killing you, huh? Throughout the afternoon, I also snacked on some home grown tomatoes- I guess the weather is still mild enough, huh?
I was able to enjoy the Fall today when I purchased this enormous squash at Trader Joe's for $.99. Does anybody know what kid of a squash this is? I think it's an acorn squash, but I forgot to look on the sticker.
I decided to roast it with cumin, chili powder, and salt for 45 minutes at 400 degrees. I hope it's good for lunch tomorrow!
I had big plans to go to the gym today, but I wasn't feeling it and I know better than to force myself to workout when I don't wanna. It will happen when I'm in the mood- most likely tomorrow.
For now, I am planning on walking all the way to my kitchen to get this:
Isn't it cute? I got this one for myself and a coffee one for the husband. I think it's one cup of ice cream and a perfect amount to enjoy while watching Amazing Race!
