Literary Inspirations - Peter Pan

We haven't done one of these in forever! This literary inspiration is based on the book Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Peter Pan
All it takes is a little faith, trust, and pixie dust! A pirate hat for wearing on board the pirate ship, Indian moccasins to walk silently through the woods like Tiger Lilly's tribe. A secret forest hideout with the Lost Boys. Watch out for the mermaids - they aren't friendly! And the crocodile is your friend, if you're not Captain Hook!

Fall Wish List

Otherwise known as "stuff I want but am too poor to buy so I will drool over on polyvore instead"
Fall wish list

I didn't mean for it to be themed, but it does seem to have a fairly neutral color scheme. Right now I'm wishing for cozy sweaters, black jeans, the perfect pair of black boots (which I've been looking for for about 3 years now with no luck), taupe nail polish, warm slippers, and especially a gold men's inspired watch. There's a girl in my office who has the watch in this set and I want to steal it from her. My birthday is in about 2 months though, hmmmm...

An Apple A Day

Leaves me with way too many apples.


Last weekend the boy and I went apple picking and even though we only picked a peck (of picked peppers?) it was still way more than I was ever going to eat on my own. So what to do with all the extras? Make delicious apple treats of course!


While I do love Apple Crisp, I find it's usually a bit too sweet for me. So instead I tired this Apple Breakfast Granola Crisp from Smitten Kitchen. I made a few adjustments to the recipe - I used 1/4 c sugar to give it a little bit of sweetness, and next time I would use another cup of oats because the granola seemed to be significantly less in proportion to the apples.


I brought it to my cousin's birthday party and it was a huge hit, especially with the two diabetics since there's only 1/4 c of sugar (or a few tablespoons if you use the original recipe) and 1/4 c honey in the entire batch.


The only problem that remains is that this only used up about half the apples! What to make with the other half?

Can we take a moment to look at this woman's awesome coat?

Pass the Mustard

Maybe it's the leaves beginning to change colors, but I am in love with golden and mustardy yellows right now. I have a rather difficult time pulling that color off, so I will look at all these pretties instead.
