ahhh!! Fall!!!

FINALLY!!  It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve woken to a breezy morning where snuggling under my favorite quilt

with my cup of coffee was even possible….

but his morning was THAT morning!  AHH!!

I started by having this oatmeal

It was overnight oats

1 scoop of chocolate amazing grass ( sounds naughty, dontcha think?)

1 teaspoon almond butter

1/2 ripe banana mashed a bit

1 teaspoon coconut butter

a few slivered almonds on top

When I described this to my sister, Jodie , she said, “OMG!, you had a sundae for breakfast!!”

Yes. Yes, indeed I did!

and it was Oh-so-Good!

Farmer Dave & Sasha from Plato\’s Harvest Organic Farm were looking for some help to harvest an early crop of winter squash, so Scott & I headed out to the farm on this early perfect Sunday morning.

The farm has 2 fields; One that we go to each week to receive our share of our CSA.. and a larger field about a mile down the street. Where the squash were 🙂


After a brief tour of the field.. we set out to pick & polish

BUTTERNUT SQUASH!!

( Amanda, did I just hear you squeal all the way from Florida?)
We  loaded the squash into crates, load them into Dave’s truck & trailer

we had a picnic lunch under the trees. ( we had heirloom tomato sandwiches with a basil-garlic mayonnaise , I didn’t think to take pictures because I was still in the afterglow of my ‘Sundae’ (pun completely intended )breakfast.. but I smashed a garlic clove & mixed it with some light mayonnaise *Hellman’s* and shredded basil , salt & pepper) on our bread from our bread share.. buttermilk honey.

I also mixed some frozen raspberries with some Non-fat greek yogurt (Chobani) & a few slivered almonds on top. Stir it all together & as the berries defrost, they keep the yogurt cold & then whole thing mixes together.. great for packing ahead 🙂

and some unsweetened iced tea

Really, a perfect ‘fall’ day 😉

On another note, hopefully you have found me here from my previous bloodspot address. I’m really liking wordpress!!  There is not anywhere (that I can find) to click a ‘follow’ button, but if you enter your email, wordpress will automatically send you an email whenever I have a new post… Plus, this may be handy in the upcoming weeks.. I foresee a giveaway 😉

I’m off. It’s fondue night at Casa Hagg…. Ryan’s last non-school night for awhile and like his mama.. he loves fondue!!!

Have a happy & SAFE Labor Day!!

xoxo~ shel
