Apple Pumpkin Waffle Sandwich

Yesterday afternoon (after the Bears won!) we went to Heritage Days in a nearby town. It consisted mostly of food, music, a flea market, a carnival, and stuff for the kids to do. Here’s a few pics:

Afterwards we stopped by a new to us farmers market:

Unfortunately, we got there right before they were closing and most of the good produce was gone. I got two lemons and the kids both picked out an apple. Next time, I’ll have to go earlier in the day.

Today

So, it seems like I can’t stop buying k-cups! But it’s not my fault that they come out with the best flavors during the fall season.

And really, what’s better that enjoying a hot cup of butter toffee coffee on a cool crisp fall day?

I wasn’t a huge fan of the mocha k-cups from Dunkin Donuts, so when I saw that Target had their k-cups on sale with a $5 gift card for buying two boxes, I couldn’t resist. I won’t need to be buying anymore for a while.

Breakfast

I came up with another great way to try out the pumpkin butter – a wafflewich!

I used two Van’s multigrain Belgian waffles and spread them with about a tablespoon of pumpkin butter. Then I sliced thin pieces of apple and added them to the waffle. Put the two waffles together, and you have an apple pumpkin butter waffle sandwich!

Biggest Loser

Only about five more days until the Biggest Loser is over. I don’t expect to lose too much weight at the final weigh-in. My scale has been kind of stuck lately. I keep gaining and losing the same two pounds. I think I’ve hit a plateau and can’t seem to lose any more weight (I’m sure my weekend eating isn’t helping).

My goals this week are to:

  • eat as healthy as I can and try not to eat a lot of sugar
  • workout daily (no problem there!)
  • eat most of my carbs during the day rather than at night
  • drink lots and lots of water (I am usually pretty good about this)

Questions of the day:

  • Have you ever hit a weight plateau? How did you start losing weight again?
  • Do you have any goals this week?
  • Favorite coffee? Favorite breakfast?

    Hi I’m from the Rockford area would you mind telling what town had a farmers market on a Sunday? It seems like they are usually on Saturday which is difficult for me to get to because of work. I enjoy your blog and seeing all the local places you go to because Iam so close.
