I had an extra special week with my family this past week. My daughter celebrated her birthday, we had a field trip to a pumpkin farm and loads of celebration dinners. I also made my first pumpkin recipe of the month (finally)! So now the pressure is off (a little). I still promised a pumpkin-fest month full of pumpkin loving recipes so I have to get my pumpkin recipes in order to wow you this week (I hope).
I also created two fun microwave recipes in a mug this week. I think I will be experimenting more with my microwave... you know how I love to experiment. Heck, the fact that I had a homemade chocolate cake in less than 3 minutes in the microwave makes me think.... this can be life changing and bit dangerous too.
National Pasta Day was also celebrated this past week and I was thrilled to be asked by Classico Pasta Sauce to contribute a recipe. I think I have fallen in love with using anchovies to flavor pasta sauces and vegetables. I never knew how deep and flavorful anchovies could be once they are melted down in some olive oil. So keep a look out for more recipes in the future with anchovies too.
I ended the week with a really comforting and protein packed soup when I cooked up my Southwestern Three Bean Soup. I see more comforting soups in my future since I finally see the weather starting to cool down and the cooler side of fall settling in before winter. The leaves are magnificently changing color around my area and I wish I carried my camera around everywhere to capture the beauty I see around me. All I can do is to try to soak in and cherish every majestic hue of color that Mother Nature has painted. I would not give up the beauty of fall for anything (even if winter is looming around the corner).
Okay... now off for our weekly recipe countdown:
