Good morning! :mrgreen:
I was working on a freelance article last night and, umm…ate the article. Hence no dinner to report! Ok, well, not the actual article, just the dishes I made to write about. They were super tasty and I’ll be sure to share the recipes when they’re published!
Today is the FINAL day to vote for my Homemade Pasta & Pasta allo Scoglio for Project Food Blog Challenge #2. I can still taste those scallops… Anyways, I accidently gave you the wrong link the other day so, here’s the correct one! Your support means the world to me. :D
It appears the praying mantis has setup permanent residence in our front yard. Every time I go out he’s in a new place, but I’ve yet to see him move an INCH! I’m sure he’s thinking…if I don’t move, then maybe they won’t see me…um, NO. I am this close to getting a broom and making the street in front of my house it’s new permanent residence. I’ll totally do it! Don’t test me mantis!
Although I will admit, it’s kind of fun to come out and play “where’s mantis?” ;)

In other news…
I had a CRAZY bad sweet tooth yesterday that seemingly could not be squashed (pun intended.) I had some leftover pumpkin in the fridge, so I whipped up a batch of Pumpkin Muffins last night to satisfy my cravings!
I followed Picky Cook’s recipe (GREAT site!) except I used no-sugar added, natural applesauce in place of the oil, and only 1 cup of sugar. I also nixed the cinnamon-sugar topping.
Ohhh, they are so good! Full of Autumn spice, crazy moist and super dense.
I had two muffins smeared with a little butter for breakfast. How good are buttered muffins, btw?!
I’ve got a massive Pizza Salad for lunch today.
In the mix:
- Mixed greens
- Feta cheese
- Salad Supreme seasoning
Tastes just like a pizza from the salty pepperoni, zippy feta cheese and the zesty salad supreme seasoning. This seasoning blend has cheese, garlic powder, paprika, sesame seeds, etc. and makes everything in my salad pop!
It’s the same seasoning mix that I use to make Grandpa’s Pasta Salad, and you can find it right in the spice aisle.
Duh-duh-dum…I picked up a Sweet Tango Apple at the store last weekend, after it got such RAVE reviews from all of you last week, and I’m bringing it to crunch on this afternoon.
It’s smaller than a Honeycrisp but it looks just as crispy, which I like.
I’ll let you know how it tastes tonight!
Three Question Thursday
I remembered Three Question Thursday again today – whee! Here ya’ go!
1. What was the name of your first pet?
2. If you don’t know the number calling your cell phone, do you answer?
3. What’s your lucky number?
1. Boomer. He was a HUGE golden retriever that my brothers and I used to ride like a horse when we were little! Sadly, he got too big for the house and yard, so he went to “live on a farm.” At least…that’s what my parents told us… :?
2. No way!
