Ahhhh-ktober!

Hey guys!

Be sure to head on over to Peas & Crayons, give Jenn a little comment love, and check out all the delicious link ups!

So I’ve been enjoying my share of fall flavors over the last month or so, but the other day, I started to notice a trend…let’s see if you can spot it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had high hopes for this breakfast…Willie and I had a little chat…I was feeling good about another PUMPKIN SPICE creation…

Unfortunately, it ended in yet ANOTHER waffle-in-a-bowl!

Ba-ut, as of today, I have a can of propellant-free cooking spray that I hope is going to put an end to all future waffle bowls…either that, or Willie’s gonna be swimming with the fishes! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lunch on the other hand, required no thought, no dish changes, no scraping, and no cursing kitchen appliances.ย 

Baked sweet potato stuffed with this black bean burger and drizzled in my latest mustard find (always surprised when I find a gem at Walmart!) served with a side of fresh from the market green beans…which also ended up drizzled with mustard after the pic was taken! ๐Ÿ™‚

Snackage for the day included Amanda’s DELICIOUS pumpkin bread (with pecans instead of chocolate chips), healthified apple “nachos”, roasted seaweed and sunbutter bar, and multiple fistfuls of carrots.

I also downed PLENTY of water…some plain, a little with True Orange (first time trying it…NOT a fan), and a lot with my latest tea obsessions:
Nutcracker Sweet and Pumpkin Spice.

And then…then there was dinner:

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been too tired after my shift to whip up anything elaborate just before face planting into my pillow, but with a little prep on Sunday night, I was able to have a DELICIOUS meal in a matter of minutes!
