It’s that time of year…. time to cook like crazy. The weather is chilly, the house is decorated, people are coming and going. The best thing to do is put your kitchen to work with some meals to cozy up to.
Monday – Boursin Mac and Cheese with Chopped Kale (I’m making this one up as I go. I’ll post the recipe if it comes out OK.)
My holiday décor mostly consists of red and white with greenery thrown in. It’s simple and to the point. I like it that way. Besides, red is my favorite color. You can’t go wrong with RED!
When it came time to decorate our new home, I realized how much space I have to work with. I mean, having never decorated this house before it was almost like a blank canvas! I had no thoughts of “I put that there last year.” or “this is where the tree always goes.” You know what I mean?
What do you do with all of that leftover turkey? I mean, really, who can eat turkey for the next week and a half until its all gone? Well, here are some fabulous recipes that I found to make that leftover turkey seem brand new to everyone at the table.
This is a yummy pasta dish using the last of the season’s best: PUMPKIN! And it is so easy. This could also be a wonderful side dish on your Thanksgiving table. Make the sauce and pour it over orzo for a rice like side dish. Or serve it over mini shells and let the sauce get stuck inside. This dish is kid approved with two thumbs up! Enjoy!
This week, I found lots of inspiration on Pinterest. There are so many talented cooks out there and so many creative recipes. Several inspired me and with some tweaks, I will be giving them a try this week.
Monday – Pumpkin Alfredo with Bacon (I don’t really like Mac n Cheese so I’m making an Alfredo sauce with pumpkin, but this photo inspired me. I’ll post my recipe after it is family approved!)
