Life takes me

I know I said that I would post 3 times a day during cfw but sometimes life takes me away and I have no time to blog πŸ˜‰ You understand. Yes? Hope so.. well, let’s rewind to yesterday afternoon when I had an overripe banana as a snack.


I had a fun dinner in store for last night. I looked up several recipes for stuffed acorn squash. This was my favorite that I took inspiration from but I still put my own spin on it. I baked the acorn squash in the oven face down for 30 minutes at 400 all the while preparing the stuffing. I used 1/2 cup uncooked kashi pilaf, 1/2 an onion, 1 apple, handful of slivered almonds, cranberries, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and some extra squash from the middle. I scooped the stuffing into the acorn squash and baked for 30 more minutes. I let them cool off then sprinkled some more cinnamon and cranberries on top.


This was my first time making acorn squash and I think it turned out pretty well and I have a lot of extra stuffing as leftovers πŸ™‚

Hans and I are keeping it pretty low key this weekend. Trying to save up the $$$ for when I go to nyc and he goes for job training abroad. Not a problem.. just a bit boring now but I will thank us later. Breakfast this morning was the usual crap free brekkie. I seriously can’t go more than one day without plain banana oatmeal. It’s perfect with just a pinch of cinnamon. I actually used tea water this time but I couldn’t really taste a difference.


Then we were off to the farmer’s market! Yay, I love farmer’s market Saturdays!! Too bad this was probably the last one.


After the farmer’s market, it was time for TJ’s and now I am happy to say that our fridge and pantry have been restocked!! which means a lot more interesting meals!

Hope you enjoy your Saturday!!
