Life as I know it.

Dessert in a Glass

This just happened in my blender

  • 1 banana
  • almond milk
  • chia seeds
  • 1 spoonful peanut butter
  • 1 heaping spoonful of raw cacao
  • ice

 

This, my friends, is dessert in a glass.

4 mile run on the docket this morning, followed by yoga workshop this afternoon.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to like this day.

Pretty

I took this on my way out of school yesterday.  They line the driveway and I always admire how the sun shines through the puffballs on top of these tall grassy like plants.  I have no idea what they are, but they are certainly pretty.

My Contributions to Thanksgiving Dinner

For the past few years, my mom and sister, Amanda, have come up to Vermont to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.  I love this newly created tradition as I’m often traveling during other school vacations to spend time with my very spread out, but close-knit family.  My grandma was supposed to come this year as well, but she is stuck in Florida with pneumonia. We missed you, Grandma!  Usually, we all help out in getting dinner together.  My mom made the turkey breast.  It’s the one time of the year that I allow meat to be cooked in my kitchen.  Amanda made the stuffing and whipped cream that we ate with raspberries for dessert.  Sit me down with a bowl of real deal whipped cream and a spoon and I’d be one happy camper.  I made the following:

Whole Wheat Bread

Whole Wheat Bread

I’m not sure there is anything better than freshly baked homemade bread….unless we’re talking whipped cream.

Roasted Pears with Brie and Pistachios

These pears were amazing.  They were actually my favorite part of the meal. They were so easy to make and simply delicious.  If you need to bring a quick, easy, and amazing appetizer somewhere you should try these out.

Stuffed Acorn Squash

I’ve made a similar version of  stuffed acorn squash before.  This time I used kale instead of spinach and I left out the tomatoes because I tend not to eat them when they are not in season.  They were just as delicious!

We had a lovely meal together. Lucky me, I have a ton to be so very thankful for in my life.  I think about that fact often, not just on Thanksgiving.
