We’ve set the date for apple picking!  October 6th at Larriland Farms and it can’t get here fast enough. In the meantime, this was a rather uneventful week.  I signed up for my fall detox in a few weeks and although I’m excited for it (and seriously need it), I’m not looking forward to weaning off coffee again.  I managed to quit coffee for about 6 months at the end of last year and while I liked having more energy throughout the day, I just love the damn stuff too much.  Coffee, I just can’t quit you.  You complete me. Etc.

I have some really fun posts coming up this week on the blog!  Two mouth-watering recipes that I’m very excited to share as well as another fun giveaway.

On to the roundup…

My Favorite Instagram Photos:
(I’m beginning to wonder if I should just call this cat photos of the week)

When purchasing weight control food for Sofi, I decided
it was important to pick a package where the cat seemed happy.  

 

 

 Does she look happy?  I feel like she’s trying to tell me something.

 

 

A sneak peek at tomorrow’s recipe! 

 

 

On Savory Simple:

 

Pumpkin Spiced Cocktail Nuts

These nuts are perfect for fall parties or lazy fall evenings on the patio with a glass of wine!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cinnamon Apple Fruit Leather

A healthy snack that’s surprisingly easy to make!  A perfect treat for the kids (and us big kids)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spicy Pappardelle with Sausage and Shiitake Mushrooms

A hearty pasta with heat to warm you up on a crisp autumn day

    I absolutely LOVE apple season! Our weather this year has been so warm and dry that the apple orchards near my house are running a couple of weeks behind schedule, but I’m REALLY looking forward to going soon!
    Your cat is ADORABLE <3

    Have fun apple picking! I bet you were happy this week was uneventful after writing about the stress you faced the previous week. It’s always nice when things calm down.
