That Time Again


Despite feeling like it was Tuesday (because I went to work yesterday), I had a really nice day. I rode the stationary bike this morning and took a brisk fall walk at lunch. Who doesn’t love this weather? I actually decided it’s officially fall because I wore socks to work for the first time since last spring. My feet were nice and cozy all day long.

October is also my birthday month, which is significant because of all the little reminders that make me feel special:


Anthro never forgets!


And they always send the cutest stuff. Now if I could only afford anything even after the 15% off:(


Dinner was a big bowl of goodness – my favorite. This bowl was made with a base of TJ’s pilaf (which was awesome) with black beans, roasted sweet potatoes, peas, and pineapple salsa. I’m really trying hard to want to cook again, but I’m still coming home from work ravenous and impatient. I’m also cooking for one most nights, so I don’t have the pressure to impress anyone. I’m hoping to tackle a baking project on Thursday though. What’s going on in your kitchen?

Yawn. Goodnight.

    I love fall, but hate being cold 🙁 I love the changing leaves though, so I guess that makes up for it a bit! I’m always starving when I get home from work too. I try to remember to have a snack shortly before I leave at the end of the day so that I don’t go home and eat the fridge. I’m in love with Fiber One bars at the moment…that or some almonds usually help. Yesterday I made a big pot of chili and a big pot of soup, so I’m good for the week! That’s usually the most action my kitchen will see until the next weekend, lol.

    I was more of a summer gal, but now, i’m liking fall more and more!
    Ahhh, the weather is SO good! I hope winter is not coming so soon..
    I had a bowl of soybean stew, brown rice cooked with beans…and a few side dishes!

    I have an absolutely killer chicken satay recipe which takes about 30 minutes all up (including cooking time) which would be really easy to adapt for one if you want it! You could even prep it the night before then just whack it in the oven straight away when you get home?

    I make sure to eat a snack around 4pm so that I don’t come home starving and eat everything in sight! Gives me much more patience for cooking 🙂

      I usually eat almonds or an apple, but it doesn’t help bc I think its more mental. I’d love to try your recipe!!
