What have I cooked this week?
Monday-organic chicken breasts, baked potatoes, steamed broccoli, and salad. This meal was so "traditional" I felt like I wasn't at my own house.
Tuesday-cheese quesadillas with salad on the side. I had these plated up beautifully but failed to take a photo of them.
Wednesday-$5.00 pizza for Teenage Boy. I slow cooked garbanzo beans that night though prepping for a later meal. One day of carry-out is still pretty unusual for us but we have two plays going on and I have forgiven myself already.
Thursday-Husband's night to cook and he made/burritos which were yummy! I love it when he has a plan and carries it out. Thank you sweetheart.
Friday-we had leftovers and appetizers as we were all heading to different events. (I prepped and roasted the butternut squash, which is the last vegetable to be eaten from our garden!) I am always happy with chips and salsa for dinner.
Saturday-I am making a pasta recipe using the golden squash, some spinach, and some of the garbanzo beans based on this recipe from Epicurious and a recipe my mother-in-law sent me.
I made a wonderful baked oatmeal dish this morning that I found as I lay in bed early (like 5 am) and used my time to scroll through pinterest. At around 8:30 when I actually forced myself to get up I tossed this dish together in my slow cooker and it made the house smell so flavorful! Groovy Girl dismissed it as too creamy (yes, she is a brunette Goldilocks) but husband and I gobbled it up. He ran a Jingle Bell race this morning and I cheered him on so we were both chilly. The next time I make it I would chop the apples up more. I only sliced them using my OXO apple slicer and that was the first thing that bothered GG-huge soft apple slices in the middle of her bowl. Oh, the horror! Husband and I will be eating this all week long for an excellent breakfast treat.

We are about to eat the pasta, butternut squash, spinach dish. I made large cheese curls from a Parmesan cheese triangle but I also have some fresh Gorgonzola from our dairy because their is something about squash that pairs well with Gorgonzola's pungent flavor.
In other news I really want these gorgeous purple shoes, love the price but hate spending $10.00 on shipping. What do you do? I am about half way through Louise Erdrich's The Round House and love her writing.
