How Many Days til Fall Begins?

It’s 24 to be exact. Or I guess I should say, how many days until it feels like Fall? It has been a scorcher (highs in the mid-90s) all week, and this chick is just about done with it. I just want it to be cool for a few hours in the morning and evenings! That’s all I ask.. Oh, Missouri, how I loathe you sometimes.

What’s made it even worse is that my beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte has already returned to Starbucks (I found out this morning), and I just can’t bring myself to go get one when it’s 92 degrees outside.

Made with soymilk, of course!

Maybe this weekend when it’s only 89 degrees outside, I’ll be more in the mood to give the Pumpkin Spice a go (*sigh*)… Although, if I can hold off, I can guarantee it will be 10x more amazing and delicious on a cool morning while wearing a sweater and boots! But ya know, this is Missouri. It could happen sooner than I’m thinking. Fingers crossed!


Lunch today was a good one! I was super hungry before I left my office and cravin’ eggs! Breakfast for lunch sounded amazing, so I grabbed the carton of eggs out of the fridge right as I walked in the door and got a hot skillet sizzling.

I’m a big fan of the Pam Olive Oil spray for scrambling eggs, so a quick coating of that was all I used to cook my lunch today. Then I whipped 2 eggs with a splash of soymilk and some salt & pepper. While these started cooking, I found a can of mixed veggies in the pantry and decided to toss them into the mix. It was comprised of diced potatoes, carrots, celery, corn, and peas. I let these stay on the heat long enough to heat through and then topped the scramble mix with a touch more pepper.

IMG_8076Mmmm APPPPPLE BUTTTER. Yes, I love the stuff! If it was socially acceptable, I would eat the stuff with a spoon out of the jar. Ok, I maybe snuck one spoonful…or two.

After lunch, the day flew by and I arrived home to a needy dog. So I leashed Mac up for his normal 1 mile post-work walk before I headed to Jazzercise.

I love me some mid-week Jazzercise lovin’! My classes always put me in a great mood plus give me an awesome work out. Tonight’s class was fairly low-key with only 2 students. I think everyone else has started their Labor Day weekend early! One of my very devout students brought me some of her garden fresh veggies. I have some of the best students!

The cucumbers will be made into a yummy salad and also just sliced up to eat on their own. I can’t get enough! And I’m definitely eating one right now along with my dinner. At least it’s a healthy addiction!

So any healthy recipe suggestions for the spaghetti squash? I typically bake it and then eat it with a little marinara sauce or by itself with some seasonings. I would love to try something new this time!

Time for a little more bridal shower crafting. Here’s the peek into what I have been doing. My fingers are slightly sore from tying so many tiny bows! Hint: The shower theme may or may not be a Bridal Tea Party!
