This weekend, Russ and I had a nice mix of exercise and relaxing.
We visited a dairy farm with my Mom in Rhode Island, close to where she grew up as a child, called Wright’s Dairy Farm. There’s lots of creamy goodness at Wrights!
The treats are very rich and very tasty but what I like the most about this place are the cute cows…
Although I do enjoy a sweet treat every now and again, Russ and I really do try (operative word) to balance our indulgences.
This morning, like most weekend mornings, we started our day with our favorite steel cuts oats, blueberries, raspberries, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds. Great fuel for our run with Lucy.
I love our little routine on the weekends. Do you have a special weekend routine?
In honor of the change of seasons and the fall produce selection…. I decided I would cook up some butternut squash. It’s my favorite fall squash to cook with and it is equally delish done up with savory seasonings as it is with sweet and cinnamon-y flavors. This time I opted to add some cinnamon and ginger.
I de-seeded the squash and chopped it up into bite size chunks. Sometimes I like a big hearty chunk and sometimes a small bite-size piece. Today, I went bite-size.
Roast it up….and eat it up.
