I hate to talk about the weather, but…
Is it cold at your house already? It’s been unseasonably cold the past few days here in Nebraska. Temps are supposed to creep up again, thankfully, but here it is mid-September and I’m already wearing wool socks. It’s a little early for that, but I’m kind of a cold weather wimp. ;)
We’re pulling in quite a bit from our garden since it’s been getting so cold at night. We probably won’t be getting many more fresh tomatoes (sniff). I chopped one up to go with a new recipe – Taco Dip. It was super, super easy and really delicious – two favorite qualities in a recipe at my house. Fresh pineapple (not from our garden, ha!) was a great side dish. And of course, I served a mountain of quesadillas too. We’re serious about our food.
I’ve got a new Make-Ahead Lunch Box idea to share with you later this week. Below is a sneak preview. Simple and delicious. Full details coming in a few days!
One of the cold days last week, you would have found me wearing my wool socks…and drinking an iced coffee. Silly and counterproductive, I know. But the iced coffee was delicious, making the shivering episode completely worth it. I will say though, I stuck with hot coffee the rest of the week. I’m not completely crazy (just mostly).
Here’s a look at our menu this week:
Saturday, September 20
Scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, raspberries
One dish meat and potato casserole, tossed salad
