tuesday things



1)  I’m so impatient.

Anyway, at least I’m not the only one.  Starbucks even advertised that they’ve already brought back their Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Food bloggers left and right are already dreaming of comforting soups, warm baked goods, and anything pumpkin or apple.

2)  I hope apple season makes it to Florida soon – I’m very choosy about my favorite fruit & we’re closing in on the season for prime apple-snacking.

All I can say is hurry up, I want my Honeycrisps and Granny Smiths.

…And maybe a slice of made-from-scratch pie or two.

3)  Although surfing the Internet lately, I’ve been wanting a cool morning so I can wake up with a cup of coffee and one of these brown butter baked doughnuts.  Woah.

4)  And while we’re ogling sweets, let’s talk about these amazing-looking apple dumplings from Brown Eyed Baker.   See!  Told you I wasn’t the only one already fawning over all things Fall.

Although I guess my living in Florida makes it more ludicrous somehow on my part…


5)  I stumbled upon this pan toasted brown butter gnocchi with sweet corn & grilled scallions yesterday and oh, the possibilities!  Now I want to make some sort of gnocchi soup sometime this season….

But I’m getting ahead of myself.  Now it’s time for coffee and a slice of my pumpkin bread…then perhaps a bike ride.  Sounds lovely, no?

Happy Tuesday!
