It poured like it was never going to pour again last night. Unfortunately, that meant the horses were a mess this morning, and a mini-crisis involving our hay falling out of the shed and toppling my mom’s saddles directly into the torrential rain happened at some point during the night. I averted the crisis, cleaned out the horses, and by the time I was done, regretted getting dressed and made-up as per usual prior to going out.
That’s only one leg…my other one was sopping, too. We’re talking drenched sopping, not just sopping sopping. The only reason half my shin is dry is because I wore knee-high boots. You know, up to my knees. Somehow, the water started seeping down them, too.
I know what you’re thinking. I’m back to my usual mashed banana overnight oats. But…not quite! Last night I was feeling creative and this time mashed a peach into the base rather than a banana! It proved to be quite delicious.
Speaking of obsessions, you people sure are crazy about your pumpkin, aren’t you?! That is definitely the winner for the next birdseed bar flavor 😉 I can’t say I blame you for loving the pumpkin…it is lovely, isn’t it? Ironically, I’m a little late jumping on the “pumpkin everything” craze. It still seems too early for pumpkin for some reason!
You know what else is love? Those scalloped tomatoes. Just as good left over. I think I’ll need to make that again this weekend and finish off the tomatoes. That and, it’s pretty quick and easy for something so delicious, which is good for my weekend. I’ve got a bunch of portraits to shoot, and even one gets pretty time consuming! Speaking of which – this weekend is Project Food Blog’s next challenge – good luck to everyone who advanced!! I will not be joining you, but thank you to everyone who supported me! It means more than anything 😉

The creeper of the day award goes to this exchange:
(creepy man to me) “Is that all your hair?”
(me to man, after almost saying “no, I borrowed some from my horse for today.”) “Yes it is!”
(man to me) “You’re like Amy Winehouse! And that’s a compliment. Just as long as you make better decisions.”
(me to man)”hah…thanks…have a great day!”
I’m surprised he knows who Amy Winehouse is – he was kind of older. Just the right age to be creepy saying it.
This definitely hit the spot. I think it should be illegal to have chili before right once it’s been cooked. It definitely needs a night for all the spices to mingle and become best friends. This was way better tonight than when I tried a small bowl yesterday! So comforting, too. And freezer homemade cornbread always is a win 😉
What’s your favorite “comfort” meal?
Any plans for the weekend?
