Fall Tricks, Treats & News

It’s Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!! Put a smile on your face 🙂 I have two visitors coming up this weekend from Maryland and am VERY excited!

Yesterday marked the first official day of fall so I decided to make myself a treat! Always an excuse to celebrate 😉

Pumpkin French Toast!

So simple and filling – A great way to kick off fall! All you need:

Pumpkin French Toast (dairy-free)

Ingredients

  • 3 slices of Whole Wheat Light Style Bread (45 calories each = 135)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax (30 calories)
  • 2 tbsp water ( 0 calories)
  • 2 tbsp pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) (10 calories)

  • Dip each side of bread into bowl and place in pre-heated skillet

AMAZING and under 200 calories!

Now that I’ve shown you my treat I’d like to share this video of trick’s I saw. 25 ways to wear a scarf! I am queen of scarves ( I own about 40, no lie) and I’m always looking for new ways to wear them. This girl will show you how to do it!

Pretty sweet, eh?

For the last tidbit of information on this Friday I’d like to tell you some big (to me) news.

I’ve signed up to do my FIRST half marathon!!!!!!! Of course I wouldn’t have it any other way than me running 13.1 miles in a tutu and a tiara 🙂

This girl has never ran longer than 5 miles but I have time to train so I’m VERY excited!! If anyone has any tips or a really great training plan please let me know!

Have a good weekend

Just preparing....

Saturday Plans

Whew, I’ve been a big time slacker on the blog front. I’ve been so busy at work I haven’t really been cooking, or making it to the gym to be honest. I think I maybe worked out 3 times last week?? Lame.

Saturday morning Adam and I wanted to go get breakfast in the city… Well we woke up SO early that literally nowhere was open. We headed back to Hoboken (wasting 16 dollars in tolls :/ ) and found ONE place that would seat us (btw, it was 930am).

The Turning Point was located right on the water and had a clean chic cottage atmosphere. Adam and I always order two different meals so we can try both.

I went with the Wilbur Skillet – Filled with crushed bacon, potatoes, avocado and diced tomato. Topped with Monterey jack cheese and 2 eggs your way.

Good choice if I do say so myself. I ate about half  of the egg part and one slice of toast before I passed it on.

Adam ordered the Lobster Eggs Benedict – Succulent lobster meat, crispy smoked bacon, avocado, tomato slices and poached eggs on an english muffin glazed with a cilantro hollandaise sauce

I only had a couple of bites because it was SO rich I knew I couldn’t eat much before getting a bellyache.

I think my dish was the winnnner.

When we got home it hit me that I had signed up to bring something to our block party – Not just one thing but two things. I always do this to myself…I went to the grocery store and made pasta salad AND cookies in 45 minutes. How? No idea. I’ve always worked better under pressure though.

Our block party got kind of ruined because of the rain but since we had no other plans on a Saturday night we grabbed an umbrella and walked to get some dessert.

COLDSTONE! We roll hard on Saturday nights. I haven’t been here in over a year for sure. I got my usual – Cake Batter ice cream with rainbow sprinkles and gummy bears. I’m a kid at heart.

Adam’s choice was different from his usual brownie sundae

Strawberry Shortcake Funnel Cake. Oh.my.goodness. This dessert was literally the length of his torso. Intense. I snuck a couple of bites and it was yummy!

In other non-related food news:

Every public restroom should have these

Adam found my first gray hair. I’m about to be 27 and officially old.

I want this dress to wear when I turn officially old in 3 weeks

and since I found my first gray hair I made a mid-life crisis decision and got a tattoo

Yep, nothing but classiness here.

It’s been raining all day here so we’re ready for dinner and the couch!
