Spooky Weekend


I had a very busy weekend and a very long Monday at work…hence the Tuesday post.  This weekend, we went to the village of Sleepy Hollow for “Legend Weekend.”  It’s a festival centered around Washington Irving’s book “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”  It’s a spooky and fun little festival complete with headless horseman.  I am so upset I forgot to bring my camera!

I baked these pumpkin cupcakes, which by the end of the night became known as simply “pumpcakes” to bring to Hubbers’s coworker’s house (the host).


They are FAR from healthy, but they were super tasty.  You can find the recipe here.  I highly recommend you do.

And now for some eats…


P1020855My previous favorite oats (see next bowl), cranberry apple butter oats. You should know the mix by now…but in case you don't:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 mashed banana
  • handful craisins
  • 1 spoonful cranberry apple butter
  • cinnamon
  • 1 scoop almond butter
  • 1 scoop plain Chobani

And now…my newest favorite oats:P1020858

Apple Pie OATS!!!  In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • lots of cinnamon
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • splash of maple syrup
  • 1/2 chopped honeycrisp apple
  • topped with cinnamon raisin swirl pb (crust??) and plain Chobani (ala mode)

Heaven.ly.  I am in love with this bowl!

I then went to a baby shower (again), had some brunch-y foods and came home for a food shop.

Feast your eyes on these goodies: P1020859Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, organic baby spinach, basil, organic carrots, Starbies coffee

P1020860Bananas, lemons, garlic, oats, seltzer, pasta, beans and tomatoes (someone’s making chili this week!)

P1020861Amy’s soups, Kashi cookies, Vitatops, Amy’s burrito (cannot wait to try), Zbars, coconut water, buttload of Chobani (they were 10 for $10…score!)

P1020862Large plain Chobani, soynut butter, Annie’s dressing, organic milk and Starburst (Hubs of course), chicken sausage, ground turkey

P1020863I’m most excited to try this little jar!

And now a peek inside my fridge (since I cleaned it)

P1020873 P1020874 P1020875 P1020876 P1020877 P1020878



P1020879 Chocolate-covered strawberry oats:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 mashed banana
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • maple syrup
  • topped with sliced strawberries and chocolate soynut butter

The soynut butter is a little gritty.  I was deciding between that and PB&Co Dark Chocolate Dreams.  Next time I’ll go with DCD.

AM Snack:  CLIF Zbar



Amy’s Lentil Vegetable soup, whole wheat pita, apple

PM Snack:


TJ’s organic vanilla Greek yogurt with Panda Puffs


P1020880 Penne pesto with broccoli and asparagus – YUM!

I was totally vegetarian on Monday…three cheers for me!



P1020881   Apple pie oats again.  Seriously…make this.  NOW!


Monday was hot yoga.  Not as rigorous as my practices have been (it was a different teacher), but more focused on form…which is good.

Make it a good Tuesday everyone!
