Bacon Quiche Crescent Cups | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Well, y’all, it’s here. The Week of Eating. Which for me is generally followed by The Month of Eating (Christmas Cookies and Hot Cocoa), concluded by The Big Christmas Feast and then repeated once more by The Big New Year’s Feast and then finally, finally, I am worn out. Mostly.

So we should do this thing right and kick things off with a hearty breakfast/brunch of bacon quiche crescent cups, amiright?

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bread Pudding | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

It’s Monday, I’m home from a fun-filled weekend up north celebrating the husband’s 30th birthday that consisted of birthday cake and pie and tacos and wavy chips with French onion dip (KRYPTONITE) and yet I still have all the cravings and room in my belly for this caramel apple cinnamon roll breakfast bread pudding situation. It’s too good to pass it by for the sake of the diet.

One bite and you’d understand. So let’s grab our refilled mugs of coffee and hang out and dunk our forks/faces into this deliciousness.

Maple Vanilla Cream Stuffed Chai Doughnuts | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

In a world that makes very little sense right now, we can all count on one thing: Doughnuts are delicious. Especially when they are Maple Vanilla Cream Stuffed Chai Doughnuts. A-men.

These yeasted doughnuts are fluffy and soft and chai-spiced and rolled in cinnamon sugar and then filled with a simple homemade maple vanilla bean pastry cream that you’ll want to spoon straight into your mouth (thank goodness you’ll have extra so you can do so). All you have to do is get up off the couch, get into the kitchen, bake and believe in the healing powers of sweet dough and spice. I know I do.

Pumpkin Spice Puff Cereal | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

After waking up yesterday morning and putting on a sweater in hopes of cool-weather cozies (I think grown ups call that “hygge” or something?) only to melt like the Wicked Witch of the West in the sun and heat by the afternoon, I think it’s safe to say that I’m ready for fall.

Other signs that I’m ready? I’ve pulled my leather boots out of storage. I smile like a doofus at the changing leaves on trees. And I’m going to town on this Pumpkin Spice Puff Cereal on the daily.

Breakfast Egg and Cheese Muffins | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Hello! I am writing to you from the depths of moving boxes upon moving boxes. Actually, that is a lie — we are far from being fully packed here, and we move out in less than a week. (!) NOT PANICKING. Just gonna sit here and eat another breakfast egg and cheese muffin to prepare myself for all the packing and not panicking.

It’s hard to be motivated to pack when we are relocating ourselves to an apartment for a few months while the new house is still being built, but such is life. The apartment is actually pretty great, and it might even be fun to feel like we’re “camping out” for a while. But I know that, come December, I will be itching like no other to move into our new home. Counting down the days.
