Well Hello Again....


I feel like I'm writing this more for myself than anyone who might still be subscribed to this little blog, but I'm really glad to be back in my corner of the Internet! I'll be doing a post to let you in on the crazy past year and what you can expect in the future, but in the meantime I'd like to say hello, again!

What I Love Wednesday

Howdy friends! What an amazingly gorgeous day- we're getting a tiny taste of fall weather this week here in New England! What I love this week is fall decor- and I'm not talking about faux foliage or scarecrows. More like the warm, cozy and a little rustic accents that transform a home for the season.
This manzanita branch candle holder is amazing! It's a bit pricey at $99, but I've definitely seen some great DIY versions, too. I'd prefer it in a darker finish. (Note: it was from West Elm, but doesn't seem to be available anymore)
I would love a few of these chunky, knit throws from Pottery Barn to drape over chairs and the sofa. Love it! On sale for $59.99. 
I love adding little touches of nature in unexpected ways- love these dried wheat tea candle holders (although I'd be a little scared to light it....). I am thinking about using tiny sticks gathered from the yard.
How gorgeous are these monochromatic pumpkins? The orange guys are great, but there's something so elegant about these lovelies! 

What do you love this week? As always, we're linking up with What I Love Wednesday over at Lollipops Blog!!!

Menu Plan Monday

Good morning, everyone! We are experiencing (literally) the calm AFTER the storm. Boston was spared much damage from Hurricane Irene yesterday, instead merely getting quite a bit of rain and a little wind. I am so thankful that our area was relatively unaffected. I encourage you to say a prayer/send positive thoughts to those who didn't fare so well- especially where there is flooding. Our friends in Western MA have had really bad weather luck this year, with tornadoes just a few weeks ago and now much flooding. (Sidenote: did you catch this? So funny!)
On to our menu for this week. I'd like to start by saying that you might have noticed that we're mainly eating vegetarian lately- I'm really glad to be back to healthy and conscious eating. Now that the heat has died down (fingers crossed!), we'll be back in the kitchen with tons of healthy and affordable recipes to share! 
  • McCann's Irish Oatmeal, fresh fruit
  • Kashi Go Lean with coconut milk
  • Homemade wheat toast with Sunbutter and banana
  • Mushroom and sausage ragu over polenta (sub Gimme Lean "Sausage")
  • Black bean and sweet potato quesadillas with homemade guacamole
  • Chickpea tacos with pico de gallo (cook chickpeas with taco seasonings and mash slightly)
  • Smoky black bean soup
What are you cooking up this week? Spill the beans (teehee) in the comments and link to your Menu Plan so that we can steal your great ideas ;) As always, linking up with Orgjunkie.com and Menu Plan Monday!
