Sometimes all the time, I can be a Chatty Cathy when blogging. I forget often times, the pictures can speak for themselves. ┬áIn other words, it’s time for me to shut up and let the food do the talking for once…

Oh goodness…I am SUCH a Chatty Kathie blogger! I need to remind myself that no one really cares about the mundane details of my life…it’s the FOOD they care about! But everything looks delicious…you know I’m lovin’ the banana raspberry oatmeal. ;-)

Cappuccino Coconut Bliss – by far the best thing I ate all week. Actually, I’m fairly certain the best thing I ate in 2009!!! :)

Leah Zeringue January 2, 2010 at 5:34 pm

where did you find the Eastwind Peanut butter? we used to order it in gallon sized buckets, but we can’t seem to find it locally anywhere anymore. Was it at your whole foods?

Jenna January 2, 2010 at 5:52 pm

Your food does look great! Acorn squash soup looks fab-
my fav thing I ate this week was sushi…my new loveeee!

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) January 2, 2010 at 6:02 pm

The Spicy Thai Tempeh with Cashews over Cinnamon-Cumin-Cilantro Brown Rice looks and sounds amazing! Not even the tempeh, but the flavors you used. LOVELY!

Those Clif bars are good. And KALE always the way to my heart :)

Katie January 2, 2010 at 6:12 pm

Dang! Those are some good eats you had, girl! Good job on the cheap grocery bill, too. That always makes my week!

I have to tell myself to stop blabbing on in posts, too – but I miss your words, they’re always fun and I look forward to them. :-) But, I agree, it is nice to let the pictures do the talking sometimes.

Happy Saturday!

Jenny January 2, 2010 at 6:31 pm

oh snookie I could read your bloggie rants and chatty cathy-ness all day.. but for this post the food porn shall suffice. Feed meeeeee.


Susan January 2, 2010 at 6:44 pm

Nothing brings warmth to my heart like a lovely picture of breakfast containing a pool of almond butter. Thank you.

Best thing I ate all week were the butternut squash fries currently sitting in my tum.

PS – My computer friend says that the commenting prob on my blog has to do with web browser or operating system compatability (He said its not a wordpress prob). Yeah….I have no idea what this means and I’m so sorry you’ve had trubs commenting!

Faith January 2, 2010 at 7:44 pm

I was happy to see your pizza pocket on a bed of salad! I usually put a salad on top of or under my pizza, lol! Happy New Year, Holly!

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is January 2, 2010 at 7:58 pm

Mint galactica?!? So need to try it – I just had some coconut today with homemade chocolate sauce. OMG it was amazing. Happy New Year darlin’!

Carbzilla January 2, 2010 at 8:10 pm

That seems like a steal on the groceries! Nicely done!

Neela Marijana January 2, 2010 at 8:14 pm

happy new year my precious holly!
oh gosh bekah’s granola is the best! when i first tried it felt like a million flavors where exploding in my mouth ;)

Susan January 2, 2010 at 8:19 pm

I’m impressed you still have some of Bekah’s granola left – I completely devoured mine ;) That squash soup with the chickpeas looks awesome too!

Hmm, I’ve had a lot of great eats this week. My mom’s turkey & biscuit casserole, and meat pie stand out. I also ate a lot of melt-in-your-mouth shortbread. None of it has been healthy, but it has at least been delicious ;)

LindsayRuns January 2, 2010 at 8:41 pm

best thing I ate all week had to be the salt dusted chocolate chip cookies. But those chickpeas look like something I need to put on my crave list for next week.

crunchy granola gal January 2, 2010 at 8:48 pm

but holly, i love your chatty cathy nature! bring her back, puhleeeze!

best food of the week? my vote goes to my roasted veggies. oh and the margaritas i made tonight were pretty bangin’, too. and edy’s light butter pecan ice cream with homemade granola. yeah – three winners, right there.

katie January 2, 2010 at 8:55 pm

Estela @ Weekly Bite January 2, 2010 at 10:10 pm

elise January 3, 2010 at 12:12 am

Gina January 3, 2010 at 7:06 am

Wow. no words, no words. ;)

Hmmm, best thing? I made an awesome lemon tofu, kale, mushroom, sundried tomatoes, phyllo dough pie last night. A-MAZING!

Danielle January 3, 2010 at 10:03 am

Happy New Year! I’ve heard so much about you (via Kailey) and since we apparently have so much in common, have decided to add this new blog to my reading in the new year :) can’t wait to see where 2010 takes you! Seriously though, I’ve got travel plans (or hopes and dreams) as well.

Sarah (Running To Slow Things Down) January 3, 2010 at 1:13 pm

Best thing eaten all week is probably the egg sandwich I had yesterday. Sometimes I crave an egg sandwich, and this particular one hit *the* spot! :D

I can’t wait to try the Mint Coconut Bliss…it sounds heavenly! :D

Jenny January 3, 2010 at 5:32 pm

Good couple of eating days indeed! I’m jealous ;)

I’m also jealous of that grocery bill! Need to work on that one.

Bekah January 4, 2010 at 9:56 am

YUM YUM YUM! Love all your eats in this one. And no, no words are necessary. Gahhh I want to win the coconut bliss too. So good.

Nelly January 4, 2010 at 4:22 pm

Where do you live in the midwest ?
LOVE your blog

Jessica January 4, 2010 at 10:07 pm


The banana raspberry oatmeal looks lovely :)
And i’m cravingg me some more popchips and roasted chickpeas now!!!

Sorority house PERK–they always serve us popchips on “build your own” sandwich days!!!! bbq flav = numero uno. salt & vin pulls a close second!

And you are gettin’ so creative in the kitch and continuing to make some of the most delishh, peanut buttery thangs lately…it’s making me crazy!

I just had some roasted veggies pizza (with lots of chili flakes) from the “Sunharvest” brand and it was to dieeeeeee!!! XOXOXOXO
