Back to “Normal”

Is life ever really “normal”? I don’t know….but, it is nice to get back to reality today after a week of vacation mode and a couple days of “surgery mode” – I haven’t heard from Anthony’s dad yet this morning, but the hope is that he’s doing well and will come home today.

Yesterday, in Nashville – the Trader Joe’s just happens to be about 5 minutes from Vanderbilt where Anthony’s dad was having surgery- so to get out for awhile, Anthony and I made a Trader Joe’s run….here’s some of what I got…5 seed almond bars (delicious), almond butter, pumpkin butter, dark chocolate blueberries, some candied ginger, a couple of bars I hadn’t tried, and some bruschetta topping that looks fabulous! And, I really stocked up on almond and pumpkin butter- stay tuned….I see my first blog giveaway in the near future!


So, having my favorite pumpkin butter back in my fridge inpsired breakfast – I was still craving waffles….


Add some pumpkin and almond butter…


And, a drizzle of syrup and fresh blueberries  – with coffee- this was the perfect breakfast.


Now, off to work- I have a lot of catching up to do today!

Have a great Tuesday!

  3. It is so disappointing that we don’t have a TJs here in Knoxville!

  4. Pumpkin butter-now I’m going to start dreaming about it if I don’t get it soon.I looked through a couple of recipes and then realized that every time time I tried making something that I’ve never tasted before-it’s turns out awful( you never know what it’s supposed to be like). Anyway,the search is still on 🙂
