No Matter How Ya Spread It

by Courtney on October 19, 2012

Want to know the absolute best thing about having leftover salad?

It makes for one heck of a quick and easy lunch the next day! (just as long as there’s no dressing on there to begin with…soggy salad = no go for me)

We still had a decent amount of salad leftover from last night, so I decided to finish that up for today’s lunch; and since we also had some sautéed squash leftover from the other night, I threw that right in there too, along with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette.

The salad was lacking in protein, so I figured I’d make up for it by adding in a little extra on the side…in the form of peanut buttahhhhh.

Two wasa crackers topped with peanut butter and pumpkin butter.

Always delicious, no matter how ya slice it spread it.

As I was eating lunch in the living room with hubby (I’ve been spoiled having him come home for lunch a few times this week!), I happened to notice that the tree in our front yard is suddenly suuuuuuper yellow. It’s so pretty!

I’d noticed it was changing colors, obviously, but for some reason today it just seems extra bright.

After lunch, I finished things up with a handful of candy corn…

And then another one. Winking smile

This afternoon I’ve got to attempt to brave this rain so I can make my way out to the post office (to mail some giveaway goodies); then from there, it’s an evening with the girls. Yippee!

Happy Friday to everyone! Any fun plans this weekend??

LOVE the trees changing- it’s what I love most about fall! Especially running through the leaves!
Happy Friday! I’m on my way home to spend some quality time with my fam :)

I love when the trees change too-esp since I can see mountains from my windows, so it makes it just gorgeous!

My sis is coming home this weekend, and we’re going to a friend’s wedding. Super excited to see her again, even though I just saw her last month. Too long between visits, if you ask me.

I could eat candy corn all day. Those little nuggets are DANGEROUS. The pumpkin-shaped ones are my fave! Bigger the better, am I right?

I love the fall foliage. It’s so pretty! :) My husband and I are going to Lancaster to visit our friends. I’m excited and looking forward to lots of good Amish eats especially since my hubby has never been there.

I love when the trees on our block reach their peak. It’s so sad after they fall off and have nothing on them–that’s when the snow comes in! :)

My fiance used to commute one hour to and from work, but this spring he started a new job that is just a few blocks from where I work, so everyday we go home for lunch together. It’s the best thing EVER! You wouldn’t think if you live with someone all the time that a simple lunch every weekday would be such a big deal, but I really cherish our lunch time together.

I recently started a new job and while my commute is really long, the drive there is absolutely gorgeous right now with all of the colorful trees. I always want to take a picture of the view on my phone but then I realize that’s probably not the best idea while I’m trying to drive during the morning rush…
I love the plant you have in your window!

I love the view from your front window – the colors are gorgeous, especially with you Fall decor :) Fall seems to be doing crazy time-warping things here too. It wasn’t long ago that the trees were sporting all their gorgeous colors, and now there’s hardly any leaves left on the trees!

I love watching the leaves change colors, so pretty! I literally stopped at a stop sign and took a picture of the leaves the other day…while there were other cars, it was awkward. Probably not the best idea ever. I have fun plans for Saturday night, for a wine night:)

That’s such a pretty view! We’re already starting to lose the leaves here…but I’ll enjoy it until it’s completely gone!

P.S. post-lunch candy corn = amazing. I might have to go sneak a handful right now… :-D

That tree is gorgeous! I love this season so much and all of the changing colors!
My weekend will be pretty busy with work but I’m hoping to fit in a nice long run which will definitely be fun. :)

What a pretty site to see, just looking out your window. We don’t get the pretty foliage like that in Texas but I hope to travel north sometime during the Fall to really get the experience.

I love Wasa crackers and think I will pick some up at the store this weekend, thanks to you!!!

I like that the candy corn goes with the fall colors of the leaves, too! It’s all so pretty!
For salad, I don’t mind if the dressing is on there and I eat it later that day (a little soggy is okay, hehe).

I’ve been noticing the changing trees more lately too! I live in a new neighborhood, so there aren’t too many big trees around, but I love seeing all of the colors in the hills around where I live… so pretty!

I think I’m turning into a candy corn. Tonight I went for a 4.5 mile run (woohoo!) and met my mom at Chipotle. Now I’m relaxing on my couch because I’m getting up REALLY early to go (::gulp::) camping tomorrow.

I’ve been inspired. I’m going to hit up Target and get some Fall decorations! I love, love, love your window display. So cute.

I’ll also be studying for my NASM exam….lame.

Not sure how I stumbled onto your blog, but I read it daily now and really enjoy it. :) Thanks! I want to try your pumpkin custard oats. Can I pin it somehow?
p.s. I’ve noticed in your brownie pics that you seem to like the edges. You an edge person? I HAVE to have gooey, doughy, barely cooked middle piece. :)

25 Courtney October 20, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Haha, I looooove the crunchy edges :)
And you should definitely be able to pin the oats!
