Happy Monday, guys! Let’s start this week healthy.

Because tomorrow I’ve got a cinnamon apple monkey bread and we are going to indulge.

ANYWAY.

How was the weekend?

Mine was pretty boring. I’m not even sure that I left the house.

The highlight was me freaking out for over an hour last night because I lost the memory card that had SIX RECIPES still on it. I had put it in the pocket of my sweatpants and then I started working on some yoga stuff and put it on my nightstand so that I wouldn’t lose it.

And yep, went looking for it not long after and it was GONE.

Found it in my running shoes an hour later.

Still don’t know how it happened but hey, I found it and now we have this Balela Salad to talk about.

Heeeey guys!

I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned this but hatch pepper season is my favorite time of year since moving to Texas.

We used to get hatch chiles in Colorado but it’s nowhere near like it is in Texas.

Like, you walk into HEB and they’ve got barrels of mild hatch peppers here and the spicy ones are over there and if you want your hatch peppers already roasted, you’re in luck!

Because they’ve got roasted ones and roasted diced ones and, by the way, they’re sampling hatch pepper guacamole over there and hatch pepper cornbread in the bakery and, oh, hatch pepper empanadas right here.

There are even hatch pepper fake Oreos and I have 11 boxes of them in my freezer right now to last until next year and you can take your judgement somewhere else.

Hey guys, happy almost Friday! I hope your week has been fab!

My kids have a half day at school today. Isn’t it weird to have a half day on a Thursday? I will never understand it.

Like, the beauty of a half day is that it’s supposed to kick off the weekend. Right? But nope, they have to get up on Friday and go to school.

Hey guys!

How are the resolutions going?

Mine are going really well. You guys know that one of my goals is to significantly cut back on the animal products that my household consumes. It’s easier than anticipated – I don’t even think my kids have noticed!

This meatless, dairy-free Black Bean Soup has become a favorite among all of us!

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili – serious comfort food! Turkey chili filled with butternut squash, black beans, tomatoes, and lots of spices.

Is everyone obsessed with squash right now or is it just me?

I feel like every post I’ve put up this month has been squash.

I have 5 varieties in my pantry right now. And as soon as I cook one, I run to the store to replace it. Just in case I have an emergency and need a sweet dumpling squash right now.

I can’t get enough.
