I also roasted up a bunch of vegetables from my CSA share for lunch. Aren’t they so pretty and colorful! The mix includes beets, carrots, potatoes, and acorn squash.
Then it was off to dinner (I’ll keep the location undisclosed) and a show where I munched on a small salad and a bit of fried rice:
Such a good way to start off the morning, overnight pumpkin oats in a jar. 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup of soy milk, 1/4 cup pumpkin, cinnamon, and the leftover PB in the jar. So so good!
The band also went back to basics by playing back through their catalogue of music with several of my favorites including Miles Away, Pin, Phenomena, and ended the set by serenading the crowd with Maps before rocking back out with Y Control.
Bonfire night 2:
Funny story, at dinner on night 2 a classmate spotted the guy from the “Man on Wire.” Well most of us got up to look and I’m pretty sure he saw us, but apparently didn’t mind because he ended up joining us around the bonfire.
Last week was pretty uneventful. Only 2 half days of work leaves me very bored. When I have nothing to do, I usually bake or read, so I did a lot of both last week.
I made banana blueberry bread one day:
Then transformed it into nutella/blueberry preserves-stuffed french toast a few days later. Yum!
I knew I was going on a mini-vacation to the Poconos (mountains) this weekend, so I contributed brownies. I used a box mix, but added cherry-flavored morsels and frosting on top, and they were a big hit!
And yesterday was one of the best food experiences of my life! I LOVE sushi, and I went to a sushi buffet yesterday. They had so many different selections to choose from, and I didn’t want to stop eating! I will be going there many times in the future!
Finally, canned pumpkin is back on the shelves! I’ve been looking forward to making some healthy dog treats, and some pumpkin pancakes too! And maybe some other pumpkin dessert. Pumpkin mousse or custard, maybe? Something out of the ordinary would be fun to try.
And this is the week that new episodes of TV shows come back! My faves are probably Glee, Bones, and The Big Bang Theory. Can’t wait for Glee tonight!
Quick post before I dash to the store, meet class and zoom off to Montauk for a couple of days for my school retreat.
