Rabbit! Rabbit! Rabbit! It’s the 1st of the month! (You should look up the tradition if you haven’t heard of it before.)
Speaking of which, have any of you guys heard of the “Photo a Day Challenge”?
Basically, there is a prompt for every day of the month and you take a photo according to what the prompt is. It’s a really easy concept. I didn’t go in order for October. I picked out words as I wanted to take the picture. So, in essence, I guess I cheated a little bit. I took pictures for 24 of the days, though! I think that’s a success for my first time trying this! Here they are (I put the prompt of the day in the caption of the photograph):
It was a really fun and creative way to get me to use my camera more than I normally would! I am going to try it again for the month of November!
BTW, I did Insanity this morning. Holy moly was it hard! The intervals were the exact same as they have been for the past several weeks, but I was already sore from a more intense arm workout yesterday and a hill workout earlier in the week not to mention my 5+ mile pub run I did last night with the guys. Let’s just say the class kicked my butt this morning.

I am trying to use up the rest of my CSA veggies! Yes, I still have some! So I made this Butternut Squash Apple Cranberry Bake. Definitely a fall recipe if you need one!
Butternut Squash Apple Cranberry Bake
– 1 large butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
– 2 large cooking apples, peeled and cut into ½ inch thick slices
– 1/3 cup dried cranberries
– ¼ cup packed brown sugar
– ½ tbsp flour
– ½ tsp salt
– ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
– 2 tbsp butter cut into ¼-inch cubes
– Preheat oven to 350*.
– In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, flour, salt, and nutmeg.
– Place the squash in an 8×8 baking dish, then top with apples and cranberries. Sprinkle the sugar mixture on top and dot with butter cubes.
– Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Stir before serving so that the squash and apples are sufficiently sauced.
