Wonderful Wednesday #2

Another week gone, and it's time for my second Wonderful Wednesday post, which happens to be very food and drink oriented this time...

:: Porridge topped with nuts, berries, maple syrup and cinnamon in different combinations. The chill in the air means that porridge season is well and truly here, and as much as I love banana pancakes and smoothie bowls, a warming bowl of porridge will always be my favourite.

:: Finding a tv-series that makes me feel all warm, fuzzy and happy - namely Gilmore Girls. After years (or what feels like years) of people gasping at the fact that I had never seen it, I finally dived into it last week and I'm hooked. It's an instant happy pill.

:: Filter coffee, fresh from our sparkling (albeit very plastic-y) new filter coffee machine. We always had a filter machine in the house when I grew up and french press coffee is not my favourite. Watching Gilmore Girls awakened my need for coffee, so the other day I just had to pop into Argos and got one. Tea, you will always have my heart, but you'll have to make some more room for coffee.

:: An impromptu coffee and cake date with myself, after a busy weekend shift at work. My intention was to pop in for a take-away coffee, but my eye was drawn to the most delicious-looking vegan teacake with maple, pecans and blueberries. Who could possibly say no to that? 

:: New autumn clothes, including a large, very soft scarf and not one, but two, new coats. When you live in Scotland, having a few different coats and jackets to choose from makes life a little bit more fun. 

:: Colder temperatures, chilly winds and an excuse to wear the above-mentioned new clothes. I do love autumn.

Make sure to head over to the other Wonderful Wednesday ladies as well, namely SallyJoHelenMichelleSarahKateCatSamElKerri and Jasmin. And enjoy the rest of your week!
