Yummy and Dangerous

Around mid-morning today, I headed out to check on the garden since it’d been a few days since we last had a rendezvous.


It’s lookin’ like my zucchini plants are slowing down again, my peppers are doing awesome (you can see some towards the front of the garden), my peas are dead, I have three fat, baby cucumbers, and about a gazillion green tomatoes. I’m tellin’ you guys…just you wait until those tomatoes start to ripen. It’s gonna be tomato city around here. Winking smile

Of course, while I was out doing the garden thang, my second set of eyes was not far away.


He’s too funny. He knows he can push open the door, but some days (like today) he’ll just sit there and meow at me until I come back. Other days, he’ll sneak out as if I can’t see him and then and walk as slow as molasses around the back deck. Quite a character, that one.

In addition to the garden, my mid-morning also included a little homemade trail mix. I ran out of my container yesterday, so decided to throw together whatever I could find – which included almonds, cashews and pecans (mini bags leftover from last year’s HLS – haha!) raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries, granola, and a handful of this Honey Nut Cheerios snack mix that I bought on clearance last week and have been loooooving.


That’s a yummy and dangerous container right there…BUT, much more cost effective. Winking smile

After snacking on so much trail mix, I didn’t have a huge appetite for lunch, but since I have an appointment I have to head out for, I knew I should eat something.


So I put together a lovely granola bowl made with plain Chobani, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and Love Grown Foods granola.


Totally hit the spot!

Alrighty folks, gotta jet…how’s everyone’s last day of July going? (<—seriously?!?)

    Let’s not talk about it being the last day of July. I am not ready for summer to be creeping to an end!
    I made some awesome trail mix today too, and snacked my way through lunch. I planted a garden this year too, and everything seemed to grow great except my zucchinis. As soon as one would sprout, it would turn yellow and start to wither. I don’t know why!

    Cody is definitely a cutie pie. What does his meow sound like? Is it weird that I wonder what Cody’s voice is like?

    Can’t even believe its August tomorrow. What the heck happened to Summer?!
    Cody is such a cutie. And I really need to plant a garden next year, I’ve been going through zucchinis up the wazoo and am just imagining how much I could have saved by planting a garden myself.

    That’s a lot of goodies in that trail mix. Your berry yogurt bowl looks delicious! :)

    I can’t believe it’s the last day of July. This summer has flown by unbelievably fast. I don’t want to go back to school yet!
