It’s hard to believe that it’s already November! Where did the time go? It will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas and the New Year before we know it! I love this time of year, but it always seems to sneak up on me. This year my husband will be gone for Thanksgiving (two out of four times since we’ve lived here), but he will be back for Christmas and his family will be visiting too. I’m really looking forward to that .
Although I can’t believe it’s already November, this week went by so slowly. I think it is because we are hoping to find out any day now where we will be going for our next assignment. We still don’t know and the anticipation is killing me!
We posted some great recipes and mindful tips on MYBT this week. In case you missed anything, here is a re-cap:
And here is a sampling of some of the recipes that caught my eye this week. As usual, you can also find them on my Pinterest boards.
Oatmeal Baked in Pumpkin (from Healthful Pursuit) What a fabulous idea!
Oil Free Blueberry Streusel Scones (from Healthful Pursuit) These are wheat, diary, and egg free…can’t wait to try them!
Nepalese Chicken Tarkari (from Amateur Gourmet) I have only had Nepalese food once. It was spinach curry and I loved it. It tasted very similar to Indian curry, but I wasn’t complaining. This chicken looks like another fun Nepalese recipe to try.
Maple Gingerbread Almond Butter (from How Sweet It Is) I made this last night, but I cheated and used some store-bought almond butter. It was awesome!!
Nut and Seed Toffee Bars (from Healthful Pursuit) In case you can’t tell from this list, I love Healthful Pursuit. Leanne, the creator of Healthful Pursuit, is a holistic nutritionist and has great recipes (especially for people with good allergies). She also started a vlog (video blog) as well where she makes short videos about healthy eating and living. I love it!
And now I have a special treat for all of you. Remember in my post for Pumpkin Cream Cheese-Filled Muffins, I talked about some of the homemade costumes that Amanda and I used to wear for Halloween? Well, I found pictures from two of the three years we wore those costumes and I thought you would enjoy seeing them. I was cracking up when I found these photos. My favorite part is how short the unicorn costumes were since it was the third year we had worn those costumes–haha! I hope they make you smile too .
