EAT IT UP
As we helped a friend move to the Hudson area last week, we hit up 3 Palms Pizzeria for some traditional moving fuel. Heads up gluten free eaters: there were plenty of options here – including those ugly cookies, which were something I was very happy to discover.
Thanks to Jess for sharing this Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake recipe – I now have a birthday treat for a certain redhead in a few weeks!
This recipe for Chicken Quinoa Soup from Dina might make for a perfect PTO Friday cooking fest – thanks lady.
And one of these days, I’ll make my own hummus – this recipe from the Kripalu blog looks like the perfect base.

I know how happy I was to get my shoulder back to normal operating procedure last time around – so it’s time to buckle down to find that sweetness again, and some more strength this time around.
Also, I’m always working on this:

Here’s to removing the unnecessary over-planning and over-thinking, the Halloween candy, and most importantly: the excuses.
