It has been difficult to keep up with the journal as well as my regular blog posts. I have also been updating my past blog posts with nicer pictures and better organization. thi has been a huge task and I have spent hours and hours on my blog. I am technology challenged when it comes to blog organization. I know HOW I want it to look, but it takes me A LONG TIME to get there! So, with that said, I am going to play around a bit to see what is the best way to keep the updates current while maintaining organization and efficiency in all things.
So on to day 9 which was Tuesday....
I spent the morning eating more oatmeal (I just can't get enough...I look forward to it every morning now). I worked on some butternut squash soup while I ate breakfast so that lunch would be ready later in the afternoon. Dinner was going to be out so nothing had to be prepped. I was planning to update a past bog post that had the butternut squash soup recipe and looked for a fun garnish. I love putting lots of fun ingredients on top of soups. I had a huge bag of raw pepitas that I roasted with cumin and cinnamon for the top. With a homemade tortilla chip, the soup went to the next level. I needed some sour cream, but was out! Next time.

I had a nice sirloin steak with caramelized onions and a brandy sauce. A salad with Cherry Balsamic dressing and Creme Brulee for dessert.
