Homemade english muffins (recipe here)-- always a crowd pleaser! They are delicious hot off the pan with some peanut butter, or made into english muffin pizzas for a quick weekday lunch.
Pumpkin chocolate chip brownies (recipe here)-- actually not brownie-like in consistency at all, but they were tasty!
Pumpkin pancakes (recipe here)-- these were a big winner. I threw in some chocolate chips because...why not?
Pumpkin spice krispie treats (recipe here)-- are you sensing a theme here?
Pineapple rice (recipe here)-- we usually try to eat vegetarian a few nights a week. This thai-inspired dish was a family favorite. Even the toddler loved it!
Around the house:
After reading this blog post, Bryan and I have decided that we are going to fast from spending this month, too. It's amazing how a new house causes you to bleed cash. And while we've been very conscious to spend carefully and make thrifty choices, it was easy for our attitude to slip into one of entitlement. So we're taking the month to put our checkbook away and realign our hearts to be grateful with what we have without feeling the need for more.
A fun trip to the Farmer's Market this morning, and we decided to sign up for our first CSA! We chose Riverstone Organic Farm out of Floyd, VA and I can't wait to get our first share!
So what have you been up to this week? Any new adventures, projects, or family goals?
