Starbucks on a Rainy Day

It's been quite rainy the past few days here in florida and although I dearly love the sun, it's been kind of nice to have some gloomy, rainy weather. It makes me feel like curling up and relaxing. Yesterday after church, in light of the rainy weather I was craving Starbucks so the husband and I decided to go. I usually just get coffee w/ soy and 2 raw sugars but I decided to try the same thing but with chai instead of coffee. Let me tell you, it was phenomenal! In fact, I wish I was drinking one right now. :) Maybe I will go buy some Chai Tea from Starbucks so I can make it on my own. 
I'm sorry to report that I did not take any pictures at the farmer's market because I forgot .. lame I know, but hopefully i'll remember next time. We did however score a bunch of yummy fruits and vegetables to last us a while. I also got a pretty pot of marigolds, which I found out take little to no care. Score!
Last night I made whole wheat pasta with homemade sauce and brussel sprouts. I was kind of flying off the seat of my pants with the sauce but it turned out pretty good. I used olive oil, garlic, onions, tomatoes, some spices, and a little bit of water. The husband approved so I guess it worked out! ;)

Overall, my weekend was lovely and laid back, but it went by way too fast. Now time to get back to studying. Hope you all have a fabulous monday!

Do you ever make homemade spaghetti sauce?
