100th post and A Giveaway!

This is my 100th post! Part of me is excited but another part knows this should have come much sooner. I just have been feeling a lack of creativity and motivation to blog lately. So in order to boost my bloggy mood a bit I'm doing my first giveaway!

In honor of September and the incoming cooler temperature I will be giving away Old Fashioned Quaker Oats and a jar of my favorite peanut butter, Teddie Smooth Unsalted - staples in my cold weather breakfast.

So you will have until NEXT TUESDAY (9-14-10) to enter this giveaway. To enter, please leave me a comment about your favorite fall breakfast!

Now a quick recap. For labor day weekend we went up to NH to visit Raf's grandparents. We had the usual big ol' Italian meal - lasagna, salad, italian bread. And for dessert? Lindt chocolate! The factory is very close to the grandparents house so they always get Lindt :)

Also, are there any Days of our Lives fans out there? OMG have you been watching recently? I heart EJ even though he's a bad guy. Sometimes he's just so sweet!

Okay on to today. Eats so far have included:
"Morning Muffin" w/ almond butter
Carrot, Red bell pepper, Homemade pita chips, Garlic Hummus
Closeup of Homemade pita chips!

 In reality my homemade pita chips aren't really pita chips at all! I actually cut up a whole wheat tortilla and spritz it with olive oil then broil it til they turn slightly brown (only a couple minutes!) It works perfectly! :)

I've got a lot of homework to do so that is what I'm planning on doing for the next few hours. What fun, right?  I'm still struggling to get into school mode but classes just started less than a week ago so I'm still adjusting.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway!


  1. yum! my favorite breakfast is pancakes, so in the fall i like to make pumpkin pancakes and top them with vanilla greek yogurt, honey, cinnamon, walnuts, and maple syrup!

  2. Mmm, cold weather breakfast would be oatmeal... not just because you're giving it away! :) I have wanted to try this pb, I've heard great things.

    Now I also want to go have breakfast with Christina up there, because her pumpkin pancakes sound AWESOME. :)

  3. My favorite fall breakfast is probably a nice bowl of oatmeal or cream of wheat! Comfort food at its best.

  4. I've never tried Teddy PB! I'm excited to have "discovered" a new-to-me brand!

    I'm with Christina on the pumpkin pancakes!! So hearty and delicious! I also enjoy pumpkin muffins...nothing beats a warm muffin hot out of the oven on a crisp fall morning!

  5. My favorite fall breakfast is pumpkin oatmeal! Warm, delicious, and satisfying :)

  6. My favorite fall breakfast would have to be a bowl of bananas and creme oatmeal, with a little cinnamon and instead of sugar to sweeten I use agave nectar (1Tbsp is only 60 calories). If it is SUPER cool out that morning, I also have either tea (also sweetened with agave) or warm cider!

  7. My fav fall breakfast is oatmeal on the stove topped with a big scoop of barney butter, cinnamon and cocoa powder! yum!!

  8. Green Monster smoothie! So energizing before work!
