In the last three days, the weather has completely turned to fall. The mornings are cool and bright, and the evenings as crisp and clear. I love it.
The gardenia bush in the backyard knows what’s up – I’ve read that the flowers only bloom when it gets cool at night, and low and behold, one aromatic flower has popped up.
I literally stood with my face buried in that bloom for five minutes this morning, inhaling the scent.
Maybe the perfume went to my head because I slapped a big glob of sunflower butter in the middle of my oatmeal. There’s something about the texture combination of nut butter and warm oats that I don’t normally like (I know, crazy) but I tried it again today.
And guess what? I liked it. Taste buds evolve, I guess!
On the stovetop:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup almond milk
Toppings: sunflower butter and blueberries
Oh – something special for you!
Peter Hollens (here’s the funny story of how we ‘met’) has released a new video featuring music by Adele (swoon!). All sounds and beats made by his mouth!
Why isn’t he hella famous yet?! So talented.
I love the title of this post Caitlin. Totally share your enthusiasm for fall–I just love everything about it!
