It finally feels like fall. A little bit anyway. This weekend brought some cooler temps in Atlanta, some rain and lots of pre-season football. I got the chance to do a whole lotta nothing too which I actually really loved. Friday night was out to dinner and back to the deck with good friends where many glasses of wine and beers were consumed. Life is full and good right now:)

I played some tennis, laid around and did some cooking and baking. Broke out the new Paleo cookbook for my first foray into grain free baking... Chocolate Hazelnut Pumpkin Bread. A total win from Juli Bauer's new cookbook. Rich and dense and really quite perfect. The recipe called for making your own chocolate hazelnut spread and I cheated because I had no hazelnuts... next time.

I also put the crock pot into the rotation for some Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili. It is always a fave... not paleo but great for meals throughout the week and the kiddoes like it!

And such is the life of a bad blogger! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Happy Monday!
