Apple red happiness
Cinnamon singing inside....
When you choose a vegan life!
So I've had that little tune in my head since my brother sang it a few weeks ago while we were in Boston (I'm not sure he was sober at the time). Okay, so I altered the last few words a bit, but I thought it sounded good. Plus, a perfect song to bring in a new season of eating apples! I've been snacking on them lately with my favorite apple pairing; peanut butter. The fuji apples at Whole Foods right now are ginormous. And so delicious.
I also used an apple last night to make a new batch of muffins, these are Zucchini Apple Muffins from the Don't Eat Off the Sidewalk zine (Issue #1). I added some walnuts. All muffins need nuts in my opinion. These are perfect for my grab-and-go breakfasts. I've become addicted to muffins lately!
And nothing to do with apples, but tonight my mom came over for dinner and we made LizzyQ's roasted fig pilaf. My only changes were to use fresh parsley instead of dried and I subbed toasted pecans for pine nuts. Then I stuffed the pilaf into half a roasted acorn squash, served with broccoli on the side. Definitely give this recipe a try! A perfect way to prepare for our cold front that should come in tonight, bringing the temps down to the mid-80's. Fall is here! (almost)
