Snack-tastic Lunch

  • Whole Grain Pretzels
  • Snapea Crisps
  • Red Pepper Strips
  • “Aussie Apple” (Sheri gave me this idea in the comments. Cut an apple and then put it back together held by a rubber band so it doesn’t brown. Worked like a charm!
  • Skittles (The Halloween Candy should be coming to an end soon!)
  • Water

Red Pepper Soup with Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Red Peppers have been on sale at Trader Joes for 2 weeks now. I think they think I’m crazy when I check out with two huge bags full. Honestly, I bought 12 this week. I love them. Little Guy loves them, and I’m working on the baby (click here for our latest baby food adventure.)

We normally eat them straight up or add them to sausage dishes, but I’ve been craving a good homemade soup. Read the rest of this post »»

Pressed Pear Turkey Sandwich

This is the grilled updated version of a sandwich I made earlier this year. I know not everyone is a fruit and meat person, but I’m just REALLY into the pear/turkey combo as evident by my latest burger creation.

I’ve made a variation of this sandwich 3 times this week and settled on this combination… Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Kabocha Squash (Japanese Pumpkin)

I’m obsessed with winter squash. OBSESSED.

In the last 3 years Delicata squash, Spaghetti squash, and Butternut squash have all become mainstay in my diet. These weren’t things I naturally gravitated towards. I don’t remember eating them growing up, and if I was actually offered roasted winter squash I probably would have turned my nose up.

FRESH Pumpkin Pancake Bites with Sprinkles!

Little Guy and I just had to do something fun for Halloween this morning. We just HAD to. It’s HALLOWEEN! Only our favorite holiday ever. Well, my favorite. Little Guy says it’s tied with Christmas and Easter for him. He evaluates holidays based on the number of presents and/or candy he gets. I evaluate them on fun factor alone and by far Halloween takes the cake–horror movies, costumes, zombies, and of course… Read the rest of this post »»

Ginger Pear Turkey Burger with Pear Yogurt Spread

Unfortunately, I only had 4oz of leftover ground turkey when I made this experiment. It came out better than I ever expected and it would have even been better if I could have made it with more ground turkey.

The pear/ginger combination was awesome with the turkey. It was a fun spin and I will make it again once I get my hands on more meat. The only thing I’ll do differently next time is double everything and add an egg. Even though the burgers stayed together I think they needed a bit more glue. Read the rest of this post »»

BOO The Ghost Didn’t Work. :(

  • PB&J on a Whole Wheat cut out with the Ghost cookie cutter (note: I cut the bread before making so I can save the leftovers for breadcrumbs)
  • Double Chocolate Banana Cup (We started added a little cocoa powder)
  • Grapes
  • Orange Pepper Slices
  • Water
