So I forgot to share with you what I woke up to Sunday morning….
I think I’ve shared with you my squirrel story and if I haven’t the short of it is that last school year I was sitting on my couch drinking coffee before work…which almost never happens. I never have time in the morning to sit because I am either sleeping until the last second possible, or working out. Anyway, I was relaxing for 5 minutes when I see out of the corner of my eye and squirrel on my fire escape. I didn’t think anything of it, but then it seemed to be getting closer and closer until it came in. My window was apparently cracked and it snuck in. Then another one appeared out of nowhere…to make a long story short, coffee went everywhere, I screamed, husband came soaking wet out of shower and somehow got squirrels out. SCARY.
Fast forward to last Sunday. I will be the first to admit, we should have taken in the soil filled pot that was outside our window, but we didn’t. I opened the curtains Sunday to water the basil plant (that’s inside) when a furry creature was staring back at me in a giant pile of leaves and branches on my fire escape. You can imagine by now I HATE squirrels so I scream (again) wake husband up and we tried to figure out what to do. Well, it’s gone. Danny got rid of it with a broom without hurting any squirrels. Now our windows will be cemented shut until I feel better opening them, you can bet it won’t ever be when I’m home alone.
So what did I do when I was still shaken up later in the day because I envisioned squirrels taking over my apartment???
I made cheesy, delicious, melty brie.
Ingredients Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut top rind off brie. Top with preserves. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until warmed and melted. Eat with bread and crackers.

*By the way, I forgot to cut the rind off the top of the brie. Don’t forget. Make sure you do that.
I’m off to work and a possible manicure later on. Anyone have any fall favorite colors??
