It’s the first Thursday of the month, and that means it’s time to share the results of my October food challenge. For the most part, I stuck with my goals this month. I definitely slacked on the coffee part, though (which is so unlike me).
- Share at least 2 “good for game day” recipes.
- Share at least 1 pumpkin recipe.
- Purchase at least 5 different seasonal coffee drinks from various shops around town and then share my thoughts on them in a post.
And here’s how I did:
- The “good for game day” recipes weren’t too difficult for me. I’m pretty diligent when it comes to writing my Tasty Tuesday posts (well, for the most part), so I assumed I could probably accomplish this goal. If you’re new to this blog and want to check them out, they can be found here and here.
- I also didn’t have an issue choosing a pumpkin recipe to share. It’s a great breakfast/brunch meal and it can be found here, if you’re interested.
- I only had one seasonal coffee drink during the month of October. One! I was actually kind of surprised at myself for not meeting this goal. I mean, it’s not too difficult to swing by a coffee shop on my way to or from work (or any other time I’m out, for that matter) … And yet somehow I managed to only do this once. Lame.
Since I only tried one seasonal coffee, I’m not going to make a separate post about it. I’ll just share my thoughts here (which is very exciting, I know).
Scooter’s never disappoints me. Some of my friends don’t like it as much as some of the other coffee places in town, but I think their coffee has a very distinct, rich flavor. I actually don’t go to Scooter’s as often as some other places (namely Fox Hollow Coffee and Starbucks), but every time I do go, I think, “Hmmm … I should probably make it a point to go there more often.”
I tried their Pumpkin Chai Latte, and it was delicious! It was rich and sweet and had the perfect balance of flavors. I basically inhaled this, so I’d definitely recommend it to others!
And there you have it … The results of my October food challenge. The theme for November’s personal challenge is organization. Since Eric and I are going to be traveling for a good portion of the month, I’m going to keep my goal (or goals) pretty simple. After all, I won’t exactly have a ton of extra time to tackle random projects this month! There are a lot of things I’d like to do, but, like I said, I’m just not sure if I’ll be able to find the time. I’m still trying to come up with at least one project I know I can stick with, but I plan to post my goal (or goals) tomorrow … So stay tuned!
