september 26-30 & October 3-7

Chicken Mole Torta didn't get around to this one this week.

Brown Butter Ravioli with walnuts Definitely better with fresh sage...I didn't have any so I had to use dried sage. Still good, just not as good. With premade pasta, this meal is super quick and easy!

Autumn Golden Vegetable Lasagna So glad I finally got around to making this one. We have another cream based lasagna that we find to be too sweet, but this one was just right. The basil was supposed to go in the layers but after I assembled the whole thing, I realized I forgot the basil. So I sprinkled it on top. Also, I substituted a delicata squash for a butternut squash b/c we got a delicata in our CSA.

Pulled Bottom Round with Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges Eric put the bottom round (from England Acres) in the crock pot with a beer and a little barbeque sauce and the it go for hours (and hours). The day we had it, I didn't feel like spicy sweet potatoes. So instead, I roasted them in the oven with some maple syrup and topped with a little brown sugar when I plated it. The sweet potatoes are fresh out of our CSA box.

Lemon Risotto with Scallops

Arugula, Potato and Green Bean Salad Eric found this recipe when searching for ways to use up our CSA potatoes and green beans. We had this with the leftover lasagna. Funny thing about the salad...when Eric asked what was for dinner and I said, he kind of grumbled. I said well you're the one who found the recipe and we have all the stuff. Eric said that every time he took a bite of the salad he wanted NOT to like it but he did like it. So what he thought was going to be an unsatisfying dinner turned into a very good dinner after all. There's still no doubt in my mind that are kids are picky because of him:) The positive side is there's still hope for my kiddos to eat well one day!

Blue Hubbard Squash Casserole Got another hubbard squash in the CSA...wanted to try something new. Good, but nothing too exciting. We had a little leftover chicken we served it with. I think it could have used more rice.

Spaghetti Squash with Sausage We had a spaghetti squash and peppers in the CSA so I made it with England Acres sausage.

Chicken Tacos Next time you make tacos, please try making it with your own spices rather than a packet...I promise you won't be disappointed!

  1. The Autumn Veggie Lasagna was awesome! I had actually dog-eared that page in my Rachel Ray magazine. I will definitely make this one.
