Back to the old grindstone

Good morning bloggies!! Hope y'all had a great weekend! They always go by so fast, don't they? Sunday I slept in until 10 O'CLOCK (!!!!) and made a nice green monster for breakfast.

We spent the morning (or what was left of it) totally vegging out in front of the tv. The husband studied & I finished reading Julie & Julia. I really liked it!! It was a surprisingly quick read and I can't wait to pick up Julie Powell's next book. Early afternoon I was getting a wee bit hungry, so we decided to skip lunch and have an early dinner. In the meantime I sliced up some sprite melon.
I picked this up last weekend from the Farmer's Market, it was a very interesting flavor--kind of the same texture as cantaloupe, a slightly similar taste to honeydew. I'm not a big fan of honeydew, so I'm glad it wasn't too close a taste-similarity, you can definately notice the pear in this melon.
I also heated up a piece of my banana-coconut pie :)

For dinner we had a very autumnal veggie selection!

Butternut squash, brussel sprouts & leftover roast beef. I roasted the sprouts & squash in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes.

Last night I started reading Time Traveler's Wife and couldn't keep my eyes open much past 9pm! I'm getting back into granny-mode! This morning I slept as long as I could and made a green monster for breakfast.

I packed some almonds for a mid-morning snack, I can tell I'm going to be hungry today.

I've got some errands to run at lunch today (REMEMBER to get gas!!) so I packed some leftover chicken curry to eat in the office.

Have a good Monday! I'm trying to suck down some tea so I can get some kind of motivation to do this pile of work in front of me......later dudes!!

Your autumnal veggie selection sounds perfect! Have you seen Julie and Julia the movie? If so, which one did you like better?
