On to today's topics, with the first being the most important...food! Earlier this week, I was browsing foodgawker (standard) and I happened to stumble across this recipe. It sounded extremely intriguing as I adore blueberries, cinnamon, and goat cheese, and I decided it would be the perfect afternoon snack. Now I was fresh out of baguettes and since this isn't Paris where I can just stroll to the nearest boulangerie, I decided to use the Ezekiel bread on hand. (Plus it made my snack a little bit more nutritious!)

What I love about it is that it's so perfect for August aka that time of year when you're trying to soak up every last drop of the summer but there's a feeling that fall is right around the corner. (My Southern ladies are probably thinking umm no, it's still 100 degrees out, but here in Colorado it's definitely starting to get a little cooler at night!) I love the combination the fresh flavors of summer you get in the sweetness of the blueberries and the tang of the goat cheese with the warmth of nutmeg and cinnamon. It's the perfect snack for when you're just hanging out and lounging around...like this:

It's definitely sad for me to see Borders closing up it's doors because it's a business that was started and headquarted in Ann Arbor, MI. (Actually the headquarters was right across the street from where I used to work) I have fond memories of sitting and reading in the Borders on State St and Liberty in Ann Arbor, and I know that it's something that will truly be missed by the community there.
As for the sale, most of the stuff was 20% off, so not super deeply discounted yet. I'll definitely be checking back over the next few weeks though and hopefully I can snag a few new travel or cookbooks!
Whew, that was a long post...but you know me, I tend to ramble! But get excited for tomorrow because I've got a special themed week of dinners that I'm pumped share with all of you...see ya then! :)
