Summer…fall, which is it?
I’m in the middle of two wonderful seasons. I can’t yet let go of Summer, but I’m not totally opposed to embracing Fall.
There’s been a lot of confusion around here lately.
A little of this:
And a lot of this:
Summer is almost gone…..but the flavors of fall have definitely arrived. I am so excited Libby’s is putting out pumpkin again. It’s truly the best!
I have been craving warm foods, pumpkin, squash, cinnamon, and all things fall!
Speaking of squash, look at the awesome new variety I picked up at the farmers market on Saturday.
Its called Sweet Potato Squash, because it tastes just like a sweet potato. So good. It has the consistency of b-nut but tastes like a good ol’ sweet p!
Here are some other eats from the weekend:
I also got a big box of goodies from Crispy Green.
They make freeze dried fruits snacks in ton of different flavors. Everything from mango to asian pairs!
They have two varieties: the original Crispy kind (with no sugar added) and Fruitzio (sweetened with cane sugar).
The crispy green fruits really retain the fruit flavor they are meant to have even through the freeze drying process. The love the melt- in- your – mouth consistency of them. They are crunchy to begin with but then they morph into a cotton-candy-esque texture. SO good. You would never guess that these are 100% fruit! I lvoe using them as toppings for yogurt and SIAB’s.
With the Fruitzio’s you can definitely tell that these ones are bit sweeter than the crispies. But the bit of added sugar is welcome, especially for fruits like strawberries because it really brings out their flavor.
Ending my weekend with the final episodes of Glee Season 1…..can’t wait for the new season to start on Tuesday!!!
Have a great Monday…..or atleast try.
Any glee fans out there? Also, are you excited for fall or still trying to hold on to summer? Let me know!
