Boring

by Meghann on October 29, 2011

I was boring today.

b-o-booorrrrinnnggg.

I’m sorry! It’s my last Saturday in town for a while and I wanted to take advantage of it while I could. There was good food though – I promise. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My hunger kicked in around 2:00 and I was jonesing for some leftovers.

Surprisingly one of my favorite combos from all of my squash meals this past week. Very fall. Very good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lunch was followed by a nap with Maddie (she’s a good snuggler when she’s worn out), laundry (I need to get my butt in gear for my next travel adventure on Monday), and the mall (I go crazy staying inside all day on a Saturday).

The mall trip was more window shopping than anything, but I did enjoy an apple cake sample from Williams-Sonoma.

It was dinner time, I was hungry and I’m a sucker for everything seasonal in Williams-Sonoma. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They always reel me in with their delicious aromas and beautiful displays.

I very loosely followed the recipe on the back of the jar for Butternut Squash Soup and just added a few extras.

I brought it all to a boil and brought to a simmer for 30 minutes.

Just enough time to make Emily’s White Cheddar Yogurt Cornbread (probably my favorite cornbread recipe of all time)

Dinner was done.

I went back and forth on blending the soup, but I really liked the chunks; especially the mushy apple. The soup was on the sweeter side, but it didn’t bother me at all. It was a quick, easy soup that was right on the money. ๐Ÿ™‚

Emily no-fail recipe rocked once again.

See? Boring.

But, good food.

Boring days can’t be bad when good food is involved, right?

Good NIght!

Happy Halloween! ๐Ÿ™‚ A couple of days ago Derek had forwarded an email my way advertising a free 5k put on by the local Trek Store. The flyer advertised a free run where costumes were encouraged and prizes would be awarded. I was so there. I had been playing with the idea of doing a more ยป
