Thanksgiving Treats

Hi all! Today’s my Friday! How about that? It’s a good feeling knowing that I get the day to myself tomorrow. 100_6531

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/3 PC 5 grain cereal
  • cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup pear sauce
  • sprinkle of Dorset cereal


Yum in my tum!

I had another really productive day at work. It’s great knowing that I’m going into the busiest part of next week prepared. Mid morning I ate a piece of apple butter bread; 100_6533

I hopped on the elliptical today at the gym. I felt a little off my game for some reason, but still managed to get a good workout in.

I’d be lying if I said I enjoyed my lunch today. I packed a container of V8 Corn & Chipotle soup and was pretty excited to try it out because it had lots of whole corn kernels in it. I also brought 3 Ryvita crackers; 100_6534

I can’t pinpoint what I didn’t like about this soup. It was just a strange blend of flavours, I guess. Blah… I chased it with some cocoa roasted almonds. 100_6535

MUCH better! Just before leaving work my Thanksgiving baking order from a local (trade) high school, CHSS, came in. Check this out! 100_6536

These sugar cookies are for the kids to bring to school tomorrow to share with their classmates. 100_6537

The next layer had Mom’s ginger snap cookies, pumpkin pie tarts and mine and Mom’s whole wheat buns. The buns are $1/doz. Can’t go wrong with that! 100_6538

The bottom layer had my hubby’s pumpkin pie and Mom’s pecan pie. My hubby tore into the tarts as soon as I walked in the door. Here’s what they look like; 100_6540

While on break today, I walked over to Tim Horton’s and bought myself a box of their Pumpkin Spice tea; 100_6539

SO, both the the kids were on the ice tonight from 5:30 until 6:20…but at different rinks. :/ I baked up a frozen pizza for them and warmed up some ambercup squash with a dollop of Dijonnaise as a snack for myself; 100_6541

I took DD to her lesson and popped into the adjoining library while I was there. I found 5 cookbooks that I’ll be going through a bit later. YAHOO! When we got home all I wanted to eat was some comfort food. My tummy’s been a little sour all day so I went with some Windy Hill Farms cremo cereal; 100_6542

This was 1 cup water, 1/3 cup cremo cereal, cinnamon, raisins, almond butter and fig preserves. It went down real nice!

CSI and The Vampire Diaries are on in a bit so I’ll be shutting down soon. I’m totally hooked on the Vampire Diaries even though it’s kinda cheesy. All the eye candy makes up for that, though! :)

Bye for now!!


  1. All of your eats are so very "autumn"! I love it!

  2. Apple butter bread? Wow!!! Yum! That sounds amazing.
    i really want to try those cocoa roasted almonds. and those tarts look great!

  3. Yum! Pear sauce sounds delicious. Beautiful cookies!

  4. The mere sight of those treats are making me SO excited for Thanksgiving/Fall/Pumpkin Pie!!!

  5. Beautiful cookies! Very wise to get them out of the house tomorrow... ;)

    I still haven't gotten any pumpkin spice tea...

  6. Bummer about the V8 soup- I loveeeeeeee their regular corn soup (with a little added hot sauce...amazing). What a great batch of baked goods. Love how cute the little pies are. Enjoy your long weekend

  7. more pumpkin spice tea! why I couldn't find any of them yet in US? so jealous!

    Love your breakkie and dinner combos.. those are real comfort food. :)

  8. Sucks about the soup :( I always hate it when I have high expectations and then the food doesn't live up.

    Oh, whoa.. look at all those thanksgiving goodies!! i can't wait for pumpkin pie!

  9. So great you get a long weekend!!

    I never have too good of luck with premade soups--I guess it's because I have to high of expectations from always making my own exactly the way I like it. And wow, what a package--yum!

  10. Oh my goodness! What a lovely package - everything looks scrumptious :)

    I hope you enjoy your day off today!!

  11. Awww those little sugar cookies are adorable!! SO festive! :) Hope you have a fun weekend!

  12. I actually felt the same way when I tried the V8 disappointing, becuase it looked so much better than it tasted!

    Those baked goods look so festive (and delicious)!

    Happy Friday!

  13. Missing me some Tim Hortons right now. Dunkin Donuts just doesn't do it for me. Maple glazed donuts, Timbits, breadbowl chili on snowy day. I'm getting nostalgic now...


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
