Week of October 29, 2012

We're back from our incredible trip to England and Ireland! We had a wonderful time together as a family exploring castle ruins, driving through beautiful countryside and eating good food. This week's menu is definitely influenced by our travels!

BBQ Chili- When we returned to Seattle, all the leaves had changed and this is the perfect meal to kick-start fall with!

*BBQ Chicken Quinoa- While we were visiting the Paynes, Angela cooked up some amazing meals. This was one of them!

Chipotle Boorito Night on Halloween

*Spicy Pork Stew with Chickpeas and Sausage- Also a meal Angela cooked for us. 5 stars!!

*Roasted Squash and Goat Cheese Salad- I had this in the London airport. Yum! Roasted squash (I used acorn), romaine, arugula, sweet and spicy glazed pecans, dried cranberries, roasted pumpkin seeds, goat cheese and ranch.

*Gnocchi Mac and Cheese- Very simple weeknight meal

Snacks/Lunches
*Sweet Potato Pancakes- very good
*Peanut Butter Cup Smores Bars- Mark requested this as a birthday dessert. It was the least I could do since his birthday was spent in airports and 3 different planes for a total of 22 hours of traveling time

* = new recipe
