Happy Monday friends! In preparation for the upcoming work week, I have whipped up these Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls for a quick meal in the morning. I am slow moving in the mornings, and even worse now that I’m waking up in complete darkness, so these have been a real life saver. They are also warm and comforting and taste like fall, all good things in my books!
White girls everywhere, rejoice! Fall is upon us again. So put on your favourite boots and your blanket scarf, grab yourself a Pumpkin Spice Latté and go take some photos in a pumpkin patch. But what if there is no Starbucks in your town, or any town nearby for that matter. What’s a white girl to do? Well this white girl is resourceful. I’m not going to let not having a Starbucks nearby ruin my fall. So I came up with my own recipe for a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latté.
This past Sunday marked a very important day for a lot of people, the beginning of a new football season. Now frankly, I do not care for football. I find it confusing. And being a good Canadian, hockey is the one and only sport I will watch. However, though football itself may not hold my interest, football food does. I have never missed a Super Bowl party, solely for the opportunity to eat delicious food. Sometimes I may even be able to tell you who played, but I wouldn’t count on that. Now to me, football food is essentially anything you can eat with your fingers and also contains enough calories to satisfy Michael Phelps. Mozzarella sticks, jalepeno poppers, potato skins, these are all great. But there is no food I associate more with football than Buffalo Chicken Wings.
Fall doesn’t officially begin till the end of September, but for me, Labour Day Weekend marks the end of summer. Even though I’m no longer in school, I can’t help but feel like September is the start of a new year. So with summer coming to a close and the start of this new season upon us, I took off to my family cottage with two of my best friends for a weekend full of sunshine, good wine, great food and a little too much fun.
