Going a little pumpkin crazy lately

13 Sep

 Hello There.

It feels as if life is never going to slow down. When you have some where to be everyday or an assignment is due every class then it is go, go, go! Well here is a quick recap of our week:

Mon.- No school because of labor day, but we had to go to work instead.

Tues.- No school again because it was an “A” day so Whit and I went for a run then worked on homework.

Wed.- Went to school then watched the premiere of the new show HELLCATS! The first episode definitely drew me in. It kind of reminded me of One Tree Hill, but it starts out in college.  

Thurs.- Did Insanity’s Pure Cardio and got a killer cramp. I felt so sick, my stomach felt like it was on fire, and then I started getting heart burn. Not good!
 NOTE TO SELF: If I am ever going to do that intense of a workout then I must wait at LEAST an hour before working out.
After that we went to our booorrring Art Appreciation class.

Fri.- School and christmas shopping at the mall and a toffee mocha latte from Starby’s to finish the perfect night.

Sat.- Worked 8-close, the place was jam packed, and I was a sweaty mess trying to make a gazzilion egg sandwiches. Why can’t people just make their own breakfast on the weekend? lol.

Sun.- Went to church, watched football, did homework, watched VMA’s. Then around 4 pm we got a phone call about crime in the neighborhood and to go into the basement until further notice. It turns out a storage container was mistaken for a possible pipe bomb. All of the streets in our neighborhood were closed off for hours! Don’t ask me why it took them so long to figure out if was not an actual bomb. Craziness.  

Today- Worked out then lounged all day. I was at least happy for one day of relaxation. I cannot wait till later because the new season of 90210 premieres. Who’s gonna watch it? The season finale has drama out the wazzoo. Namoi was raped, Annie finally tells her parents about her hit-and-run incident, her parents are pretty much splitting up, Jasper sets Liam’s boat on fire, ect. Clearly I am excited! 

The fuel Lately has consisted of:

Strawberry overnight oats

Spinach Bolani with Veggies

 Shakeology Overnight oats with Pumpkin spice tea

 Egg-white Turkey Veggie salad with a Pluot

 Welcome back Luna! 🙂 These babies never fail when you’re a hungry monkey at school. lol

Chicken Taco Veggie Salad

 New to us Product: My Weigh

“The KD-7000 reads in Grams, Pound;Ounces, Ounces, Pounds, & Kilograms. This makes them perfect for Home, Office, Kitchen and thousands of other uses. These scales are extremely durable and versatile.” (My weigh website)

 This scale rocks! We decided to test it out first with our Pancake mix. A 1/2 cup serving is 61g, so we set the scale to the grams measurement.

 First up, weigh the measuring spoon. (37g)

 Both the mix and spoon is 98g-37g=61g. Look at how exact that is!

 Viola, perfect serving of pancake heaven 🙂

Jennie-O Turkey Sammie on 10 grain bread w/ an almond butter lathered pear

 WE ♥ this bread!

 When Fall comes Whit and I look forward to PUMPKIN! Clearly we went a little crazy 😛 This is only a small fragment of what we bought this week.

Everything we bought was:

  • pumpkin syrup
  • pumpkin butter
  • pumpkin tea
  • pumpkin coffee
  • pumpkin ice cream
  • candy corn

 We cannot get enough of it. If you have a love for Pumpkin like us…. then GUESS WHAT!?! Our work is coming out with a pumpkin Crunch Bagel. Sept. 29th is the big day. With that said cheers to this upcoming season 🙂

 

The weather has been perfect lately, not too hot and not too cold…. in other words perfect bike riding weather.

 Whit and I took our cruisers out for a spin on Friday afternoon. I ♥ my pink cruiser.

 Man do we know each other or what! Remember when we surprised each other with these for our 17th b-day last year?

 

 Apple Bran Muffin and Simply Orange

 

 

 Look out flutter-nutters! Here come pb+ pumpkin butter+banana sammies. Paired with a Dark Chocolate Kashi TLC cookie is the best 😉

 Shirkataki noodles and a nutty apple

 We threw in some chicken sausage, veggies, spinach, laughing cow, and I can’t believe it is not butter.

 Pumpkin Butter-Pumpkin Oats

 Tomatoe soup topped with a poached egg, sour dough, and Dr. Kracker’s.

 

 Pumpkin ice cream topped with zucchini bread and greek yogurt.

 PB & J Yogurt Oats

 

 Well it is time to go get some things ready for the week. Have a lovely night and a fabulous week!

XOXO-Court & Whit

    Pumpkin butter sounds SO amazing right now. Does your scale have a tare/zero button? That’s actually really useful 🙂

    I absolutely love the bikes 🙂 and I have a question! What store do you find your health goods at? I don’t have a Trader Joes or Whole Foods near me and it’s a bummer 😦

    I don’t blame you for going pumpkin crazy! That’s what fall is all about, right…? The PB + pumpkin butter sammie looks so good!

    And oh my gosh, you guys have the cutest bikes ever. Glad you’ve had the chance to enjoy them lately 🙂

    Again, your foods make me drool. End of story. 🙂

    Looks good! What dressing do you use for your egg white and turkey salad?

  6. Lauren @ WWoB September 14, 2010 at 9:26 AM #

    I have never used a scale but I have been wanting one for ages! Recipes in grams only are so annoying…

  7. Kayla September 14, 2010 at 10:27 AM #

    Ahh! I LOVE your bikes!

    I love pumpkin, too! Ahh, autmn. I make pumpkin scuffins and they were amazing!

    Great eats as usual, girls! Your food is always so exciting and yummy.

    Did they send you that scale to review? Awesome!

    Oh, pumpkin is my favorite, too. I cannot WAIT for fall!! It’s going to be so much fun this year. 🙂

    Haha.. you ladies are like the Queens of all things pumpkin! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many pumpkin products at once.

    I really, really, really want that scale. The one I got for Christmas was pretty good but the way it was built makes it SO difficult to clean. For most people this wouldn’t be a problem but when you have a dad that somehow manages to get random food splatters everywhere, including on your food scale.. well, yeah, we have an issue here.
