Whipped up pasta with a quick tomato sauce and Italian sausage.

Sweet potato, quinoa, and kale fritters. Arugula salad with roasted beets and toasted pecans. Getting my fall on. ;-)

...with a chance of meatballs?

Do you have a recipe for these? I checked out your site but didn't see them there. Maybe I missed them? Anyway, I really enjoyed the Norwegian meatballs my older friend made, but the seasonings and sauce were from a packet. I know homemade would be so much better and a dill sauce sounds like an interesting touch.

Thanks!

Hardshell Tacos over the soft ones, I've been craving them lately.

Reading thru this thread makes me realize I need to remember to use my crockpot more often.

* Bday dinner - spaghetti with shrimp scampi
* Halloween - ? depends on trick-or-treating plans, but maybe something easy like frozen pizza (eek, used it up yesterday when I was tired)
* Thai red curry with edamame or tofu
Well, that was fast. Need new ideas already. I think today will be red lentil, spinach, lemon soup from this easy recipe: http://www.pinkofperfection.com/2011...ach-and-lemon/ plus focaccia from this recipe (probably just topped with some salt and garlic powder): http://allrecipes.com/recipe/easiest-focaccia-recipe/

I have been doing a personal learn-to-bake challenge and #6 turned out great - Chunky Apple Spice Cake - although I made the pumpkin pie spice to my liking by leaving out the allspice and including cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and a little ginger and clove. Not usually a fan of pumpkin pie spice. The focaccia above will be project #7 .

The Norwegian twist is all about the spicing. Equal parts ground beef and pork, with a "stretcher" (breadcrumbs if you want; I'm extra frugal and use rice crispies), an egg and the spices - cinnamon (technically supposed to be cassia, but they're pretty close), nutmeg, cloves, allspice, ground onion, ground garlic, and dill. Serve with a dill sauce (beef stock base, touch of milk/soymilk, dill) and ligonberries. Egg noodles on the side.

Tonight - dinner in the friendly skies via United - a tapas snack box and a duo of chardonnays. My menfolk ate better than me at home, obviously.

I have to go to the store today for a couple things, so I think I'll pick up a rotisserie and make a chicken Caesar salad.

Hopefully chicken soup tonight, but it's not looking good. Last night ended up with expensive middle eastern takeout. Get past this growth spurt please, nursling! I need to cook (and shower)!

Another batch of perloo here, to use the last of the andouille and some of the chicken from the freezer (T-15 days to moving day!). Sans shrimp this time, since we used that up in the last batch.

Awwww I can't wait to have my new swishy baby. I'm making some freezer meals next week. Hopefully it will help me out and I have a group of friends from my old church that we all cook for each other after a baby is born. It seems one of us is always pregnant. How old is your baby?

Last night after trick or treating, we had half home made pizza and pumpkin cake. For tonight, I've got 15 bean soup perking away on the stove. If I get ambitious, I'll make some cornbread or biscuits to go with.

I did pumpkin lentil veggie chili last night in the crockpot and cornbread. We had a big lunch so not sure if we will bother with a proper dinner tonight.

I have a bunch of stuff to do until a conference I am attending starts mid-week, and then I won't be home much around dinner time for the rest of the week because of that, so family will mainly fend (from the freezer stash of Trader Joe's stuff plus fresh vegetables and fruit, rice cooker, etc.), and I may be eating out a few times. See you next week!

Husband is working tonight, so I'll probably end up eating leftover bean stew. I was too lazy to make cornbread last night, so I'll probably do up a batch this afternoon.

Hamburgers last night with garlic green beans. For lunch we made our own "boneless buffalo wings." We bought some frozen popcorn chicken and then got sauce from
Buffalo Wild Wings. It's so good. I just bake the chicken until crispy and then roll it in the sauce.
