“If my life had a flavor, it would be coffee.”
I found this quote on Pinterest the other day, and it perfectly describes how I’m feeling on this cool Monday morning! Getting up early for the gym was a struggle, and the crisp air foreshadowing fall didn’t make it any better (summer, I already want you back!).
So, coffee helped. And so did this list from Joy the Baker: 11 Little Ways to Get Through This Monday. I especially love this: “…an after work situation is a lovely carrot to dangle in front of your face.” With that idea in mind, I’m looking forward to yoga, and then steak and a glass of wine this evening!
Plus, I just discovered what I’m going to do with all of the bananas in my freezer this week.

I know, I know! It’s a little late for a dinner recipe tonight, right? I definitely dropped the ball on this one (a sports reference? who am I?). Consider these five recipes a mix-and-match type of game for the week… and then one can roll over for another day!
This past weekend ended up being much more crazy than anticipated, and we got home late from a wedding Sunday night. It was a beautiful celebration up north, but sadly we couldn’t stay too long because of the drive back. I was scrambling all day today to get organized at work despite my lack of sleep.
Anyway, I’ve had this end of summer herby chicken chili pot in my head for a week now. I mean, can you blame me?
I’m not quite as excited about the “end of summer” part of the recipe name, however. I want to hang on to this perfect (read: hot) weather as long as possible! I do love fall, just not what comes after it in Colorado. Right now the only bright side to those impending freezing temperatures will be lots of new soup recipes.
