Today is the peak of fall. A warm day with about 20% of the leaves on the ground and the other 80% sporting reds, yellows, golds, and oranges.
Matt and I decided to take a walk and capture some of the beauty for evermore.
Harder than it looks
Go, triceps, go!!
There was lots of Halloween prep spotted
A little kitty warming up
He followed us!
And even a zombie!
The snack that fueled me: Alliebar!
I was hungry all day today – had a few pieces of dried fruit and nuts to tide me over as well.
[And then the sun set : (]
For dinner we ventured over to Faith + Tate’s!!
Per usual,the menu was simply gourmet!
Those fancy salts came out again!
And Faith made Better Basil Butter (go ask her what that means – it was complicated!)
We started the evening with a wee bit of Pinot
And dinner was served – Roasted Tofu, Baked Rosemary Sweet Potatoes, Roasted Broc + Cauli and Crusty Olive Bread.
Her tofu marinade was outstanding! I think nutritional yeast was involved!?
Midway through dinner a second bottle of wine was opened. "This is how we do ittttt"
This bottle was compliments of Sarah + Josh for the party this weekend and it was FAB!
World Market Sea Salt Chocolate. OMG, this made me realize how much I’ve been missing dark chocolate in my life!!
And a sliced pink lady…have also been missing those!
Thanks to friends for the fun!!
[PS. Can you believe we went from local friends of Kate + Nate to Tate + Faith!? It’s crazy! I say them all wrong all the time!]
Jessica @ How Sweet It Is says
I love salted chocolate! Such a good treat.
Faith @ lovelyascharged says
Gosh, it is so crazy hearing about another Faith in the blogging world! I used to think my name was so strange!!! The whole dinner looks absolutely amazing…I think I’d be happy having tofu + some form of roasted veggie every night for the rest of my life…er…this week 😉
I love this fall weather–the colorful tree make me so happy! 🙂
with love and cupcakes,
Estela @ Weekly Bite says
I love Fall Foliage! Its so beautiful!
I never tire of looking at photos of fall foliage. The leaves are just so pretty!
That picture of Matt cracks me up. He looks hilarious!
Lovely food, company and fall colors 🙂 I miss all those biking tracks whilst visiting my sister and bro in law in the Netherlands. I love it that you can bike in such beautiful weather. The weather in Orlando still grosses me out. Its freaking on the higher 80s while we are closing into Nov!!!!!!!
Jessica @ The Process of Healing says
You just can’t go wrong where chocolate is concerned..
Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat says
Ha, I love the zombie picture of the Husband 🙂
holly @ couchpotatoathlete says
That crusty loaf of bread looks to die for!
Matt makes an excellent zombie!
Kristy @ KristyRuns says
Sea salt chocolate?! Yum!
Can it be autumn all year long? Pretty please?
Lisa @bakebikeblog says
What lovely fall photos indeed 🙂
Krystina (Organically Me) says
Mmm, salted chocolate. This post is cute. 🙂
The Wife of a Dairyman says
Okay, what is salted chocolate? Just what it sounds like? Yum, sweet and salty all at once? I’m going to have to find some now:) Looks like it would go perfectly with a glass of pinot!
Allie (Nutty FlexitALLIEan) says
Wow that meal looks amazing! Jealous 😛
How tall are you?
Christin L. says
I LOVE Halloween decorations… our neighborhood has really gone all out! And I am quite envious of the beautiful color changing leaves! Here in Austin, TX we see a lot of green leaves go straight to brown. 🙂
sea salt chocolate? wow… i dont think i’d like it but i would like to give a try!!
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
that dinner looks terrific – reminds me of the stuff i’d make for friends!
Erin (Shortcut to bliss) says
Is there anything tastier than dinner with friends?
As someone who has (lots of) chocolate everyday, I don’t know how you went without it either! 😀 That tofu looks amazing… going to see if it’s up on her blog!
Michelle (The Runner's Plate) says
I wish it was still fall here! There’s a chance there will be snow on the ground when I wake up tomorrow!! I love pink lady apples!
Kristen @ Kristen, Sweetly says
Oh, zombies. Hahaha. Love the fall photos. I can’t believe Halloween is only one day away! The crazy weather is messing with me, I think.
Allie (Live Laugh Eat) says
FOOOOliage! Looks like our cameras got their fair share of leaves today 🙂 Love your triceps commentary + the faces on the trees.
Jess @ atasteofconfidence says
Sea salt chocolate is sooooo good
Namaste Gurl says
Yum– Do find out that pesto recipe, as well as the tofu marinade…. the whole meal looks delicious :)!
Glad you had a great day with the hubby!
I am loving all the fall colors. They look different from the colors here in Oregon. We have a lot of reds and oranges and less yellows.
Wooo! Now Matt’s representin’ the flip flops! 🙂
Lea @ Healthy Coconut says
“This is how we do ittttt”…after reading this, can’t get Montel Jordan’s song out of my head…ahhhh, get out of my head before I go to sleep.
Kelsey @ CleanTeenKelsey says
All those trees are absolutely beautiful! I love fall. 🙂 Dang, you are so lucky to have so many friends that eat like you do! That is beyond cool.
i love sea salt chocolate! I just finished the Lindt one, it took me a while, but omg, it’s amazing.
Tofu and roasted veggies are such a simple, but a great combo!
Cara Craves... says
Looks like a good spread!
Have you carved your pumpkin yet?
Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) says
Such beautiful photos! Especially the one of Matt the Zombie! 😛
Gotta find some sea salt dark chocolate…I agree, I have no idea how you’ve managed without it!
Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) says
Love all the pics! The fall is such a pretty time of year, it’s fun to take advantage of it with pictures! 😀
The meal looks fab, by the way! 😀
chelsey @ clean eating chelsey says
That tofu looks amazing! I need to be more creative with my marinades!
wow that food looks delish! pink lady apple are my absolute fave! but they never have them in buffalo, ny ;(!
sarah (the SHU box) says
ha, i had the same thought about kate + nate! and i’m glad the wine was gooood. i did pick it just b/c of the label but whole foods usually has decent ‘featured selections’!
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
Our trees are starting to lose their leaves already! Yesterday on campus I noticed some that were completely bare! I hate how fall is so fleeting!
I love all the fall weather pictures! 🙂
any chance we can get the tofu marinade? thanks!
Go talk to Faith on her blog
Ahn Ei says
As much as I love Colorado, I really miss the vibrant colors of fall back east!
[email protected] says
I have never had salted chocolate but it’s ALL over the food blogs lately. Is it really the religious experience of sweets that everyone says?
I could not find the recipe for the granola bar from Alliebar. Can you help? Thanks so much
They’re secret – she hasn’t posted one.
What a great little get together.
Nicole W. says
LMAO at ZOMBIE!!!
Katie O. says
OMG…do you think Faith would be willing to share recipes for all that great food??
Sea salt chocolate is amazing I agree 🙂 wow that spread looks fab and the tofo…. wow, done to perfection xxx
