Fave Fall Foods

Gosh, you guys really liked my pink shoes! In case you didn’t see the comments from yesterday’s post, the hot pink mary jane pumps are from J Crew. I actually got them on sale, too!

Oh and I was glad that some of you said your prime was your 30’s! That gives me something to look forward to…besides motherhood (which actually both excites and terrifies me).

Aaaand…we found out bad news on the birthday front. The space we wanted to use is taken. 🙁 I’m thinking we can either find somewhere new or…bombard the location anyways with all my friends. 😉 Yikes either way. Guess I need to make a decision and finally get an evite out!


Anywho, I pulled out some old favorites for breakfast today: PB toast with chia seeds on Whole Grain Goodness with steamed broccoli and a bit of real butter. We’ve discussed veggies for breakfast before and I still think it’s a great idea. 🙂


I couldn’t find a tupperware large enough that I could eat from.


So, I packed my salad with the toppings on the bottom.




So when I turned the container upside-down the toppings ended up on the top!

I did feel bad wasting the paper plate, but the salad was still less wasteful than if I had purchased it out.


And I had a sweet potato packed with me to micro-bake, but I decided that would be a lot easier to make from home. So, I went out for a little chicken noodle soup to combat the cold weather we’ve been having lately.

I wore a sweater, scarf and boots today! Whoa! Where did fall go? Please can we have some cool but not too-cold fall days first??


Hubby brought me a fave I haven’t had in awhile to work – local DONUTS! Gosh I just love these things.


And post work, I ended up meeting some bloggie friends for a late dinner at Blue Basil Cafe.


I kind of was craving fettucini alfredo, but decided to get the butternut squash since it was more festive and the waitress highly recommended it.

The pasta was really nice, with a sweet inside and warm buttery sauce. I really loved the bites of sage. The serving size was quite large, too, and I ended up taking some pasta home for hubby.


Plus Katie let me sample her spinach mushroom pizza.

And what bloggie outing wouldn’t be complete without a trip for frozen yogurt:

  • taro and plain froyo
  • pineapple
  • kiwi
  • strawberry
  • mochi cakes (which I made the girls try…lol)
  • coconut



I even brought some home for hubby: chocolate froyos, chocolate chips, oreos and berries.


Bailey was just excited I was home.

I’ve been loving all the fall-ish eats I’ve been enjoying lately: pumpkin spice lattes, butternut squash ravioli, pumpkin oatmeal, etc.

What’s your favorite fall food?

  1. Pumpkin outshines any single fall food in my book!

    What a great day! Dinner with the girls sounds wonderful, of course always following this with ice cream is a must! 🙂

    Have a wonderful day today!

  2. Right now, my favorite fall food is, hands down, butternut squash. Usually, I’m all for pumpkin, though.

    And, um, I *need* to know where that donut came from…. because it needs to be a part of my breakfast today. 😉

    • Sometimes I think my splurges make me the outcast of the healthy living community, but…I won’t let it stop me from indulging once in awhile. 🙂

  3. I have a kazillion different random comments on this post.

    1. Being 30 and a mom (of 2 myself) I’m still scared, in awe, but it’s the best thing I’ve ever done….if you ever need pregnancy advice… 😉

    2. Just thought you should know Red Mango is coming to Huntersville, hooray!!!

    3. I met with Jessie for lunch the other day, perhaps someday we’ll meet too, ahhhh bloggy friends!! 🙂

    Hope all is well.

  4. 40’s are better than 30’s. 30’s were fun and crazy with 4 small children. 40’s you are really confident with yourself and know yourself even better than before. 40’s ROCK! I have heard that 50’s get even better. Look at all you have to look forward to!
