Well what do you know? It’s October 1st. Let the foodie partay commence.
When I’m not throwing together a hodge-podge of oats + nut butter + banana, it’s off to smoothie bowls and yogurt cups, all topped with any granola I can get my hands on.
Coffee all day every day. I’ve tried to be better about brewing my own cold brew at home or sticking with the cheap basic sort in the office. But, every now and then a little treat is necessary, especially when it’s so-called National Coffee Day. If you insist 🙂
My first time trying Dannon Greek and I have to say, I was quite a fan. Plus the chocolate + cherry was a little bit like dessert (or so I like to tell myself…it will work eventually)
Probably my least favorite meal of the day, mostly because I hate feeling sluggish or tired at work in the afternoon. I try to bring lunches from home, packing in the veggies or grilled chicken breasts. Let’s just say it’s less than exciting here.
Oktoberfest in Madison, Connecticut
The one and only special sauce made by a friend’s mom. Apparently it’s a Sunday tradition and boy was it tasty. The sauce was packed with veggies and turkey meat and I practically dumped it all over my salad.
Eating out at Eataly

We’ve been cooking up a storm most weekends and I have to say, this mac and cheese is HIGH on my favorites list. Packed with cheese and cheese and cheese, you really cannot go wrong. Although, I let Lindsay take the lead on this one as I’m bound to cut corners and butcher the recipe.
Making dinner with friends every Wednesday night makes the week go that much faster and oh so enjoyable. Lately we have been on a pizza kick but I think we’ll be implementing some good ‘ol Tex-Mex tonight with enchiladas and chips+guac. I mean, 95% of the group is from California anyways…
Let’s see if you notice a trend here
Fall flavors at Oktoberfest – Pumpkin + Chunky Apple Crisp
Baskin + Robbins Pumpkin Cheesecake (this store is a bit too close to our apartment, which could be dangerous)
The grand finale. Why go out when you can enjoy the season’s most popular flavor at home? Who knows, maybe I’ll turn orange by the end of the season.
Have you jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon? Have you ever been to Oktoberfest?
