We took a trip to the pumpkin patch today over by the coast. The air was crisp, and being surrounded by pumpkins made me feel all happy and content. Pretty sure I have mentioned before, but I sure do love fall.
The boys had SO much fun running around, and taking a ride on the train. We brought our new wagon for two that Trevor’s Mimi got him for his birthday. It has a small caboose that hitches on behind, and it was just what we needed to pull around our pumpkins.
The big winner from last week was the chipotle chicken sweet potatoes. Yum. Knowing Dave is not a sweet potato fanatic, I made his on regular potatoes. Both of them turned out delicious, and they were really easy to make too! The boys ate the innards for lunch the following day.
The second winner from this week’s adventures in cooking was an impromptu batch of peanut butter chocolate granola. MAKE THIS PEOPLE!!!
Sunday: Honey Lime shrimp tacos on home made corn tortillas
Monday: Left over shrimp tacos
Tuesday: Quinoa stuffed acorn squash inspired by a recipe in this post. Side story here. I accidentally neglected my CSA customization last week, and an acorn squash was in my box. Hmmm. Never in my life… This could be the hot mess of the week/month/ever.
Wednesday: Grilled cheese and tomato bisque
Friday: Parmigiana meatballs over whole wheat spaghetti
Saturday: Poached eggs over asparagus. We usually serve this with bacon.
Enjoy cooking this week everyone!
