Weekly Menu

Happy Halloween Week!  Our week is full of fun with Halloween related activities at school, my husband's office, and of course trick-or-treating.  I feel very prepared with my plans for all the candy that we will be dealing with.  If you need some ideas, check out last week's post.  We had a great trip to the farm and picked up some yellow watermelon, kale, red beets, baby sweet onion, carrots, broccoli, red leaf and romaine lettuce, and some pie pumpkins.  With this assortment, we will be making the following:

  • We are having dinner with extended family and I am bringing Autumn Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing
    • using the red leaf and romaine lettuce

  • Spiced Pumpkin Soup and Kale Salad with Cheddar and Glazed Onions
    • using the pie pumpkins, kale, and baby sweet onions

We will be enjoying the watermelon for dessert.

  2. We are members of a CSA, but it is over for the year. We have not gotten much farm produce lately. I would love to have the recipe for the pumpkin soup. Hope you will share!
