Food Photo Friday


Happy Halloween everyone!  I hope you are celebrating by making a big pot of chili and snuggling up to your loved ones.  I love this time of year, especially since it's getting colder outside.  As you guys know, we have had a hard few weeks, though, so I have been making a lot of simple meals.  We have also gone out to eat a few times, one place twice in just a few days!



Fall has me craving toast.  I have been making bread + spicy jam + salad for many many meals.  It's comforting and filling, and I don't have to be in the kitchen for too long.


I made a great pasta dish last week, but I'll tell you more about that later.  I had to find something to do with all of the hummus and vegan pesto I bought at the farmer's market.


This awesome dinner was curry carrot hummus and pizza hummus, plus hot sauce, carrots and pumpkin seeds.


We have been eating the Thug Kitchen minestrone all week too, and it's still great.


I'm noticing a bread theme.


Don't worry.  I'm still getting in my greens.  Dinner salads are awesome.


I have also decided to put down alcohol for awhile, so I have been drinking ginger beer for a treat every couple days.  Laying off booze has definitely helped my depression that's been creeping in all summer, and it was nice to not medicate with it during our grief.


I have been having a smoothie for breakfast at work most mornings, and for lunch, I like to bring a salad and a smoothie.  This really keeps me full all day, which is good.




Josh and I had lunch at Bar Louie after we went back to work, and I had a very delicious, very comforting grilled veggie wrap.  Josh hates tomatoes, so I got to eat those, too.


I also ate at the Arkansas Ale House twice, and ordered the same thing.  Their veggie sandwich is my favorite thing to order out anywhere right now, so it's no surprise that I ate it twice in one week.  It's so good.



My parents were in town, so we showed them the new Diamond Bear Brewery location.  They really loved the food.  Josh and I ended up going back a week later and having a nice afternoon lunch on their patio.





They make their own root beer, so I had to get some.  It was delicious.  It is becoming much easier to not drink the longer I go.  I haven't decided what an appropriate break is, or if I will go back to drinking for now, but I feel really good.  We tried their borrelnootjes, or an Amsterdam reminiscent beer nut, but I did not really care for them.  Way too sweet.


That's what I have been into lately.  I hope everyone has a nice Halloween!

  1. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

  4. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.

  6. Somehow this eye for an eye was supposed to create justice for me. Instead, I suffered privately. I think of this experience every time I see a high profile harassment or assault case in which those inevitable all or nothing, good or evil dilemmas arise.

    After the news story went viral, Paul abruptly left his role on a Disney channel show where he played a social media star, a move that he treated as no more than a blip on his inevitable rise to the top. "I have outgrown the channel," he said in a tweeted statement, a version of which he also vlogged a couple days later. He ripped t shirt might not be wrong about that: Two days after leaving Disney, Paul challenged his fans to get him to 12 million subscribers in 12 months, a goal that he could realistically xxxtentacion shirt accomplish he already has 9 million subscribers, and gains tens of thousands of new ones each day.
