“It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!” is pretty much the theme this time of year. No longer do we have Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. It’s Fall no more as it’s been changed to ‘Pumpkin Season’. Seriously EVERYTHING is pumpkin.. EVERYTHING! Heck even Oreos just jumped on the Pumpkin bandwagon with their new Pumpkin Creme cookies. Those you guys can all partake in. Not my thing. I love pumpkin but I’m not pumpkin obsessed. Like I know folks that count down the days til Starbucks reintroduces their Pumpkin coffee thingy. Yes thingy… I don’t drink coffee nor call it those fancy schmancy names. It’s coffee and water. Anything else you put in it you’re just making it make taste not like coffee so um… drink milk. LOL
However I’d be a fool not to partake in the recipe craze. Give the people what they want and right now pumpkin is what you crave; what you need. If you search Pinterest there are a billion and 17 pumpkin recipes out there. So why not add to the list, right?
Pumpkin Crepes just speak Fall to me. You all know I’m not a huge fan of crepes/breakfast foods like this however Mr. Fantabulous is. Crepes are known as the ‘C’ word in my house. I have banned my sister from mentioning them around him because as soon as she does he’s like that 4 year old kid in the cereal aisle pleading that he needs it otherwise he’s gonna die and that he promises to pick up his room until the end of time. No seriously you don’t understand folks.
Happy Sunday TKW Family! It’s time for another installment of my weekly menu to help you in figuring out what to make for dinner. So how was your week? Mine wasn’t too bad. This whole not being allowed to work, not being allowed to work out and under quarantine is getting old…fast! Yes I’m listening to the dr’s and not doing anything I’m not supposed to and I’m resting but this is so not me. But it is what it is you know. I’m taking the time to go over the website and tweak some things as well as work on a new design. I’m also looking for someone/company that is local to Pittsburgh that does embroidery. I want to get some TKW aprons and items made up. Once I’m better I think there is a local place not too far from where I live that does this so I’ll have to check it out. But if you guys know of a company definitely shoot me an email and let me know (contact me).
If you’ve been on our Facebook page then you’ve seen a lot of chatter this past week thanks to my amazing Admins (Latesha, Paul, Moose and Becky). The questions posed have been awesome. With it now being Fall it’s soup and chili weather. We had an amazing discussion what your favorite soups are for chilly weathers. For me I have my go-to soups…
So while I’m home recovering I’ve really not had much energy to cook. I’m still pretty weak but being in the kitchen is therapeutic for me. Plus it gets my mind off of stuff you know. Since Mr. Fantabulous is doing almost 100% of the work here at the house and his job I wanted to try to make something for dinner to help out. This to me, while delicious, is super simple to make. Now I did have him help me out as I couldn’t lift the pans but making this was all me. I mean I was tired of letting him have all the fun in the kitchen. That’s my domicile after all. I guess it would be different if he let me play with the power tools then I’d be OK with him touching my All-Clad pots buttttttttttt…
yeah no… I want my kitchen back.
Since I was going simple, nothing is more simple to me than pasta and meatballs however I didn’t want spaghetti. Plus okay I had a container of ricotta in my fridge that I had to use up. Immediately I had to go with a stuffed pasta dish.
