We had a little snip, snip action from our friend Kris today!! She came over to cut Matt’s hair and I couldn’t resist requesting an appointment as well. Don’t worry, we tip her well 😉
Afterwards we went out for a photo shoot ’cause I know you guys would ask to see the results!
Stella got her layers back 😉 Just a few…
Matt got me in action
His looked cute as well! Perfect. Cut.
While we were outdoors we encountered some wildlife –
He’s staring us down!! The biggest praying mantis ever.
My day was made when the mail truck came and I got a card from my mom – along with a little spending money for some fall clothes! Too bad I have to share it with Matt 😉 Thanks mom!
Dinner was quick + easy + involved only one pan.
A Trader Joe’s salmon patty baked and topped with Tribal Moose Cranberry BBQ Sauce and Fig Goat Cheese. Served over spinach + Flax Oat Bran.
Roasted brussels. 400* for about 20-25 minutes after being tossed in some olive oil, maple syrup, salt and pepper.
I added some more maple to mine! They were sooo good. I can’t believe i ate the whole pile!
I was missing a little sumptin’ after dinner and decided to make some Banana Ice Cream.
So heavenly. Remind me of that the next time I complain about cleaning the food processor, which I just threw into the dishwasher tonight. (We only run ours every few days so I hate using up all of the space with this dish!)
Topped with a little PB and cacao nibs. Deliciously filling.
So I asked Matt to draft some text for an invitation to send to our family members for Thanksgiving. I was super impressed with his creativity when he came up with this!!
As long as Kath is living,
the responsibilities, she’ll be divvying.
The task falls to me
to write wittily
and invite you all to Thanksgiving.
Our menu is most ambitious:
Besides turkey (incredibly delicious),
It’s rich Fall flavors,
in food sweet and savor,
Cuisine that’s truly nutritious.
Corn pudding signifies Autumn,
And oysters, you’ll think we caught ’em.
There’s fresh homebrewed beer
(it’s pumpkin this year!),
The desserts, I hope someone brought ’em!
So please makes plans for vacation,
Our guest room’s taking reservations.
It wouldn’t be the same
unless the whole family came
to the ultimate seasonal celebration!
Wish we could invite you all!!!
I would love to stay and chat but it is dark and scary down here in the living room and I want to go upstairs where there are [hopefully] less chances for bug sightings!
