Life happened. Since the end of #10DaysofTailgate, I have been overwhelmed, under pressure and otherwise incapacitated. And beyond all that, we're talking about getting a kitten. Cause, you know, life's not crazy enough.
The October edition of Everyday Food features Easy Comfort Food. I have also made and blogged 1 recipe from this magazine: Potatoes Gratin. They're delicious. I highly recommend them to a friend. I'm sure there will be some more winners this month.
Easy is the name of the game right now. Frankly, we've been eating out or eating frozen meals. I'm kinda enjoying the frozen meals I made in the summer. Baked Spaghetti, Beef Pastry Pockets, and soup with Chicken Bacon Taquitos have been fantastic after a busy day when I just want to put on pajamas.
In better news, we're home for 18 nights. Sleeping in my own bed! Sleeping in on my birthday! Cuddling and playing with a new kitten! Making the current cat feel important! Making myself a birthday cake!
Here's what we're planning this month from the October 2006 issue:
- Rocky Road Bars
- Roast Beef with new potatoes and shallots
- Crispy Oven Fries
- Red and Black Bean Pies
- Ginger Pumpkin Bread
- Roasted Broccoli with Manchego Cheese
Here's to what's left of the month!
