Tuesday, September 29th. Happy Coffee Day!

It has been so long since I did an actual blog! Outside of work I’ve been busy socializing, being lazy and being a little down in the dumps. Today I realized it is time to get out of my little funk and get back in my groove! Just today I mowed the yard, cleaned out the back porch and put my stuff in the shed, cleaned the kitchen, tried on my bridesmaid dress for a seamstress to make sure it didn’t need any alterations and played with Simba and the kittens next door 🙂 Also, I watched some TV and emailed some friends. Overall, a pretty good day!

Diet (in no order):

  • two scrambled eggs with a piece of Swiss cheese and dollop of sour cream
  • bag of ruffles cheddar chips (410 calories)
  • chocolate Chia granola bar (180)
  • Healthy Choice frozen meal (chicken and broccoli linguini)
  • one Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
  • 2 brats (160 calories each), carrots and a small sweet potato for dinner
  • water
  • coffee with homemade pumpkin spice creamer

Exercise: mowed the yard, etc.

In honor of Coffee Day, here is the recipe for Pumpkin Spice Creamer (created by combining multiple recipes for homemade creamer together):

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • about 1 and 1/2 cup milk
  • 3-4 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 3 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • couple of teaspoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice or nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon etc. Whatever you’re craving and taste buds like 🙂

Here are some of my favorite recipes from last weekend: I actually experimented in the kitchen quit a bit.
