Well I don’t know about you, but I had a bit of an interesting night last night!
While I was at book club, I got a text from Chris requesting that I pick up some gauze and sports tape on my way home. Ummmm, excuse me? What happened?
Apparently Laney managed to impale herself on a metal rake and take a giant chunk out of her leg. Not exactly what you want to come home to.
Thankfully Chris did a good job of cleaning her up, but I do have a call into the vet today because the poor thing is hobbling around looking pretty pathetic.
Needless to say, I’m feeling a bit rough this morning!
5 Fall Treats to Try
Since my birthday is coming up on Sunday (I’ve decided I’m just going to keep turning 25 all over again), I’ve been asked several times this week what kind of cake I want for my birthday.
And where else am I going to look to answer thay question? Pinterest of course. (PS you should follow me on Pinterest to see more!)
There were so many delicious looking fall treats that I just felt that I HAD to share some of my favorites with you! You’ll notice a trend – I’m all about the pumpkin and the apple once September hits!
So here are 5 delicious sounding fall treats that are on my “to-make” list!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Ummm, yes?!? Chocolate? Pumpkin? Breakfast food? I’m all about that! I feel like these would be perfect on a lazy Saturday morning, with a nice cup of pumpkin spice coffee.
Caramel Apple Cupcakes
Don’t these just look decadent?? All that caramel drizzle and pecan topping. I love cucpakes that have different texture or toppings, so I think this would be a perfect sweet copy of the traditional fall treat (and probably a little less messy!)
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
Once again with the chocolate and pumpkin! Since I’m not really that great of a baker, I love breads because they tend to be a little more forgiving. Plus I love that they can be a great grab-and-go breakfast option.
Caramel Apple Cookie Cups
How perfect is this? It’s like an apple pie and a cookie got married and had a delicious love child. Those chunks of apple, that cinnamony cookie. Excuse me while I wipe the drool off my chin…
Apple Cider Sangria
I know, I know, this isn’t quite a treat like the others. But in my opinion, a fancy drink like this can definitely serve as a treat too! I love the idea of mixing a traditional apple cider with the usually summery sangria. And floating chunks of apple? I’m all about that
bass boozy fruit.
So now that I’m completely sugar hyped just looking at thesd, I’m going to try and figure out how to eat all of these without totally blowing my healthy eating habits. Apples and pumpkins are healthy… right? Fruits? Maybe?
So tell me: What is your favorite fall treat? Are you all about the apples and pumpkins in the fall? What one food screams “fall” to you?
