Oh my goodness. I know it’s not even that cold yet but brrr! It’s only the third week of fall and we are piled under every blanket we own and wearing multiple socks at a time. My toesies are cold! We tried to turn on our heat over the weekend as we live in a very poorly insulated apartment (and we are weenies) but we found out our heater is broken. So double socks it is! The one good thing about finding out our heat isn’t working now is that once the real cold and snow kicks in it will (hopefully) be fixed. Since we were shivering away we needed some comfort food. Read below to see what we ate to warm us up.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with cinnamon, apples, bananas, and blueberries. There is nothing like a nice warm bowl of oatmeal in the morning when it is colder outside. I sliced my apples and heated them up with the oatmeal so they were slightly cooked. It tasted like an apple pie!
Snack: Starbucks graham latte. Okay I am a fan. I don’t like the pumpkin spice latte, but this one YUM. Has anyone else had it yet? We were out doing our weekly grocery shop and finally decided to try it. I’m already craving another one..
Lunch: Sweetgreen’s seasonal apple, pear, and cheddar salad. We grabbed lunch after we went grocery shopping because we were avoiding heading back to our cold apartment. We both tried the new seasonal salad at Sweetgreen and loved it!
Snack: Apple chips! We were baking some things in our kitchen and decided to try and make some apple chips from some apples we still have leftover from apple picking. We tossed some in cinnamon and some in nutritional yeast for a cheddar flavor. Yum!
Dinner: Soup, of course! The best way to warm up is to have a big bowl of soup. Also in an effort to use up some of our apples we made this autumn chicken apple cider chili. We modified the recipe a little bit because we weren’t using a crockpot. We also added some carrots and celery. It came out delicious and definitely hit the spot!
Sorry about some of the not so great iphone pictures. I also just realized every picture is taken in a different location… not sure how that happened but oh well!
