Fall food

In case we had forgotten that it was Pumpkin Season, otherwise known as Fall, here is a coffee shop menu reminder.

Delicious or non?

Delicious or non?

And lo, they have used the word ‘Autumn’!

Candy corn update

So, after yesterday’s blog post another food phenomenon was revealed to me:



These are Candy Corn Oreo Stuffed White Chocolate Chip Cookies. Apparently Candy Corn Oreos hit the supermarket shelves this week, and this is a homemade version. If you want the recipe, here it is….

Make of it what you will πŸ˜‰

Locker rooms

So today I went to a local college to teach a cardio class. And as I was getting changed I saw the words LOCKER ROOM on a door. As weird as this sounds, I had to go in to see this locker room, since I have never been inside a USA locker room (note, it was the girls’ locker room, not the fellas’ one – sadly). And we don’t really have locker rooms as such in the UK colleges – not that I remember, anyway.

Anyway, the reason I wanted to see it is because the locker room is pretty iconic in teenage TV shows and movies. Girls cry about their boyfriends in there, they tell the bully to lay off, they make friends, break friends, and all sorts of shenanigans happen in the locker room. It is the place of coming-of-age for teenagers (yes, Glee πŸ˜‰ ).

So, this is the locker room (there was no one in there so no one wondered why on earth I was taking pictures).

Ah, the locker room

Ah, the locker room

So now I have been in a USA college locker room. Check πŸ˜‰

    Do the Candy Corn Oreo Stuffed White Chocolate Chip Cookies come in a sugar-free version for diabetics? I’m guessing not….. πŸ™‚

    You’ll have to go to a high school to see lockers a la Glee. Lockers are just where kids store books and other stuff that they don’t want to schlep around all day (lunch, condoms, drugs?!) They are usually just in the hallway of the HS. A Locker Room is part of the sports facility/gym where althetes change clothes and shower etc. So you still have to see just lockers!
