Sundays Six

Every Sunday

First: Since I bring my lunch to work, and the temperatures have dropped I’ve been looking for a quick and delicious meals to bring for lunch. I have fallen in love with Amy’s organic soups and Wolfgang Punk’s organic soups. They are affordable and delicious.

Second: I recently watched “Farmageedon” which was incredibly enlightening and interesting. I learned a lot about the USDA and their sneaky tactics. They interview my favorite farmer who was in “Food Inc” also, Joel Salatin. He truly is an incredible farmer with ethic practices and is very thoughtful with everything he does on his farm.

Third: I love anything that sparkles! Since the holiday season is just around the corner all the stores are filling up with glitz and glimmer. It’s so exciting!

Forth: I love holiday music. The old classics are definitely my favorites; Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Connie Francis and Louis Armstrong.

Fifth: I know I know, this post is very holiday, but I’m super excited about all the warm tastes, cozy scent and holiday decorations. I’m so excited that the gingerbread lattes and eggnog lattes are back. They really bring the holiday flavor back into action. When I’m having a hard or long day sipping on a warm eggnog latte always seems to ring me a little joy.

Sixth: Honestly I’m super excited for all the holiday festivities. All the Christmas parties, ugly sweater soirees, cookie making, gift wrapping and all the delicious food that goes with it. I can’t wait.

Common Ground Fair

Common Ground Fair

Here comes fall with the start of fair season which I adore so much. I love the Common Ground Fair. It’s my favorite fair to go to every year, and some years I don’t make it, but I made sure I went this time. It was amazing! It was beautiful weather, and I got to spend the day with my mom which was nice. The Common Ground Fair is an all organic fair from it’s food venders to their farmers, as well as all products are local. It’s put on my MOFGA, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardiner’s Association. They are apart of many events and farms throughout Maine which I think is wonderful. If you every are in Maine at the end of September you should visit this fair. It is truly inspirational, educational, and delicious.

Camera? Help!

Camera? Help!

So I am in the market for a new camera and I need some advice. I have been researching for the last month and have at least zeroed in on the brand, Canon. Everyone who I talk to and know loves their digital Canon! I have in the past worked with a Canon and did truly enjoy the smoothness and ease of use. A friend of mine who does wedding photography uses the Canon 50D and loves it (the one in the picture above). I do love the features of this camera and the price isn’t too outrageous (yes I do have a budget, under $1,500). A few others that I have been looking at are the EOS series (7D, 60D) and the Rebel series (T2i, T3i, and XSi).
So, long story short, help! I need some more personal opinions about easiness of use and the functionality. Please I would love to hear your suggestions!

For the Starbucks enthusiast

For the Starbucks enthusiast

I was browsing my local grocery store the other day and while picking out some almond milk, I discovered Starbucks newest endeavor. Their new line of “Discoveries” espresso beverages are my new favorite addiction. They are not only saving me time and money, but completely satisfying my coffee craving. They have three favors; caramel macchiato, mocha, and vanilla latte. I have yet to purchase the vanilla latte, but the other two are heavenly delicious. They are 50.7 fl oz and only cost $4 and some change (at my local retailer). If I go into a Starbucks and order an iced, grande caramel macchiato it’s going to cost about the same, but now I can get more iced deliciousness for my money (six, 8 fl oz servings in one “Discoveries”). I highly recommend picking one up the next time your running into your grocery store, you will be pleasantly satisfied.
