Tuesday Morning Mish Mash + a Guest Post

Hello everyone! Before I get into all the randomness I have to share with you I want to invite you over to Christina's blog, This Woman Cooks!, where I am guest posting today about one of my favorite Fall desserts! If you want to know what dessert Keith almost always requests head on over and see what I have to share today! I've made it over 20 times, so you know it has to be good!

And now, a few photos from the weekend...

Have you seen these cotton candy grapes? They really do taste like cotton candy. Don't believe me? You'll just have to find them and try them for yourself! 

For the past two weeks our fridge has been so unorganized and I hate that. It ruins my morning when I wake up and can't find what I'm looking for in there as I try to make Owen's breakfast. I finally got it under control this weekend and my sanity has been restored. 

I got out before 7:30am on Sunday morning for my workout and it felt really good. I loved having the whole day ahead of us knowing I'd already done what I "had to" do. 

I made this salad on the fly Friday night for dinner and it was so good. It's just an herb lettuce blend, baked chicken (seasoned with garlic powder, Himalayan salt and pepper), fresh mozarella, chopped tomatoes and basil tossed with balsamic dressing and a balsamic glaze drizzle. Easy +  good = Great in my book. We're having it for dinner this week too.

We went to a friend's house for dinner Sunday night and had a lovely time (as always!). We love hanging with this family, and their daughter is so sweet to Owen. They were such little loves "chatting" and coloring happily in the playroom while the adults talked. Seriously, I walked in and they were having some toddler-speak conversation about babies and horses or something. We're no so secretly hoping that they get married someday!

HUGE N'Sync fan here. I was so happy to wake up Sunday morning, watch this performance and introduce Owen to JT's dance moves. I can't even start on the train wreak that was Miley Cyrus. I kept thinking about how her parents must feel watching their daughter act like that. I ended up fast forwarding it.

Have you seen this? I had to buy one yesterday at the store when I saw it. A "lite" avocado? Someone on Instagram mentioned that it tastes like a watered down version of an avocado, which doesn't sound good to me, but I'll try it and let you know how it turns out. The thing is HUGE by the way, like larger than a softball.

So, 4 out of 7 pictures / topics here today were about food. Are you surprised? You should expect nothing less from me!

Yes, I'm totally dying to know about the avocado. I'm an avocado LOVER so I am intrigued as to how they could change it up.

That salad looks SO good and I was extremely excited to see NSYNC again!! It brought me back to my teeny-bopper days!

Sara said...

Slimcado? So weird. How do you make a vegetable less fatty? Nevermind, I probably don't want to know. :) Anyway, that salad looks amazing.
