{trader joes // fall}

So, I randomly called TJ’s yesterday to see when they’d get their first shipment of pumpkins. When I heard, “they just got here” my heart skipped a beat. ha. For reals though. It’s been a hard week. Short weeks always rock my damn world. Just less days to cram the same amount of work.

I pulled up to pallets full of Cinderella pumpkins. Warty pumpkins. Tiny pumpkins. It truly made my whole day. Is that sad? Anyway, I took a stroll up and down every aisle picking up any of the fall new arrivals I could find. Since I LOVE seeing what everyone gets from TJ’s and what they’re going to make with the items, I thought fuck it – I will too 🙂 Hope it brings you some joy too. Or maybe I’m the only creep that feels pure happiness from a good Trader Joe’s haul? ha!!!

{air fryer bbq salmon}

I have to be honest – I haven’t LOVED being in the kitchen lately. It used to be my thang!

A big glass of wine, music playing, cooking away in the kitchen. Kinda my way of winding down at the end of the day. I guess it ebbs and flows? Maybe I’m more of a summery kitchen lover? We’ll see….fingers crossed for my peeps. Ha!

Anyway, I saw TheBuyGuide on instagram do an air fryer salmon the other day. And the finished product looked so damn good. I had to try it out. Obvi putting my spin on it. Tried it out last night. Annndddd…

{tiktok baked feta pasta}

The pasta that went viral. I’m sure you’ve all seen it by now, right? Baked feta pasta. It’s a low effort recipe for pasta with tomatoes and cheese…I mean, what’s not to love, right?

But, you know I couldn’t follow the Gen Z way of making it. According to these punks – side parts + skinny jeans are old. Ha! So, I had to put my own little xoxo stacyb spin on the recipe that EVERYONE is making + loving!

We’re officially off to the Oregon coast for a little vacay. Packed up all my fall clothes and sofa king excited to bundle up by the ocean. I snagged this $20 AC/DC sweatshirt from target this week and currently wearing it as I type. It’s so cozy. Stole bays new Reebok sneaks and I have to admit, they are way cuter than I thought.

Anyway, My goal was to have a blog post up everyday this week with one being a new recipe. So, here we go.

Another day, another sheet pan meal. You know one dish dinners are my jam. This one is perfect for the season. It screams fall.

{sheet pan salmon}

You guys – I wrote in my Intentions for the week to share a recipe. And here ya go. Holding myself to it. Last night I made my famous (not really lol) {sheet pan sausage + veggies}. I’m a BIG fan of sheet pan meals.

The clean up is key for week nights. And they’re typically pretty healthy recipes….protein + veggies.

Did I mention, I no longer have a dishwasher? I AM the dishwasher. Ha! Our little old 1950’s house has no dishwasher. We plan to do a kitchen renovation in about 6 months….fingers crossed. And a dishwasher is at the tip-pity top of my “must have” list.

I was always one to store my dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Until it was full, then run it. Anyone else?

And I made my sheet pan sausage + veggies last night, it reminded me of this salmon dish I made a few weeks ago. I snapped photos and planned to share it the next day. Then I probably decided to blog about Target or something.
