Fall is, by far, my favourite time of year. I love the crisp air and the bright colours. I love crocheting a new blanket in time for winter. Hot apple cider, a pot of simmering homemade chili, and big chunky sweaters. Awww...

Happy Monday

I'm sipping my second cup of coffee and watching the rain come down. Tomorrow is my daughter's last day of school and my last morning of having to pack her lunch!

Desparately Seeking

I'm desparately seeking to get into the best shape of my life! Tomorrow I'll post a photograph of what my tired and sagging body looks like at this very moment in my life. I'll then proceed to post one picture a day of my body and watch the transformation begin. bet.

Apple Convert

My husband recently bought each of us an iPhone. Black for him. White for me. In the past I haven't been an Apple devotee. Reason? Justin Long. I don't think I need to elaborate.

Photograph and recipe courtesy of: The Gouda Life
Goat Cheese Croquettes with Spring Mix, Blueberries and Honey-Balsamic Reduction
1 log goat cheese, frozen (I put mine in about 30 minutes before I started)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tbsp fine cornmeal
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup fresh, organic blueberries
2 cup spring mix/micro greens/arugula etc
1 tbsp honey
1/2 C balsamic vinegar (you can use the cheap stuff for this)

In a sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the balsamic vinegar and honey. Let it cook down until it’s reduced by half and coats the back of a spoon. Slice your frozen goat cheese log into 1-1.5” rounds. Add the panko and cornmeal together and give it a quick stir.One at a time, take one round and dip it into the beaten egg, and then into the panko/cornmeal mixture. Press the round lightly into the bread crumbs, flip and repeat. Set aside. Repeat until all your goat cheese rounds are breaded and ready to be fried. In a frying pan, heat vegetable oil until it ripples. Add the rounds to the pan and fry until golden brown [+/- 2 minutes]. Gently flip and repeat.

This painting reminds me of the first summer my husband and I let our 6 year-old daughter go to camp. Alone. For a whole week.
