So Soon?!?

While I was shopping at Shopper's (yep where I worked for a brief time last year) I was really tacken aback when I saw this.....

What the heck???? Halloween candy? It's still August! We are still drowning in Back to School stuff!

In case you didn't see the first pic.....



YESSSSS! Tons of sugary joy....But I was reasonnable, I didn't buy any....

YET!


Instead I fixed myself a niiiiicccceee healthy lunch of quinoa tabouleh salad with shrinp and smoked salmon
It was delicious!


I did splurge today and went to Santa Lucia Pizzeria on Stanley street with a friend (yes I made a friend at work more on that later) and ate this....


It is a calzone with italian sausage, green pepper, mushrooms, cheese and sauce. It was freshly made and delicious and so was the salad.

On a garden note.....
For the past 2 years I grew some wonderful pole beans native to my region.
We've been having crazy storms in the past 2 weeks and the tower full of beans fell this week for the second time up rooting all the bean plants.....Oh well what can I do.

I harvested all the pods I could to dry and disposed of the rest.

You can't fight mother nature!

I hope you're having a good harvest so far.

Have a great night :)

I know, I saw some Halloween today and was taken aback! Love pole beans, sorry about your "misfortune" though!

It's just wrong that Halloween candy is out before my green beans are ripe! What's the world coming to?
