Happy Marvelous Monday! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend. Here are some things that are making my Monday marvelous.
This summer in Wisconsin has been stiflingly hot and sticky, which makes fall all the more welcome. I can’t get enough of the changing leaves and temps in the mid to high 60s.
A Marvelous Weekend:
Mondays are so much more enjoyable when I’ve really been able to let lose on the weekend. Yesterday we drove to my parent’s house to grill out for dinner and just hang out. Brenton also did a photoshoot of my nephew in the backyard, which turned out awesome.
Marvelous Fall Produce:
I love heading to the farmers market this time of year. Between the sweet potatoes, butternut squash and tomatoes, I’m getting a ton of inspiration for new recipes. These are the grape tomatoes I picked at my parent’s house. I could pop these like candy. YUM!
“Marvelous” Weird Bugs:
Check out this little critter that was hanging out near the tomatoes. I’ve never seen a Praying Mantis before. My mother was pretty horrified!
I love leftovers. Since I’m taking a yoga class after work and getting home pretty late (7:15), cooking is the last thing I want to do. Good think Brittney’s Sweet Potato Chili will be waiting in the fridge. I followed her recipe pretty closely, except I used less spices and cooked it on high in the slow cooker for about 4 1/2 hours.
