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

You just reminded me I have a bag of 15 bean soup in the pantry - maybe I'll make it up this weekend, with some bacon pain d'epi!

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

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.
