I think I’ve mentioned this here before but I’ve been getting a CSA basket recently from an awesome farm out of Austin, Johnson’s Backyard Gardens. If you don’t know what a CSA is it stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Basically, you get a weekly basket full of whatever the farm is growing at the time. It’s pretty fantastic. So I’ve been receiving all these awesome veggies each week, and since my husband has been gone the last couple of months (he got home last week!) it was up to me to eat ALL the veggies. Of course, I don’t mind since I LOVE vegetables, but it’s been a bit of a challenge to find new and exciting ways to eat them all before they go bad.

I don’t know about you but Thanksgiving leftovers may be my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner (besides the whole spending time with family thing). They’re definitely my favorite part of hosting Thanksgiving dinner! Like many of you I’m sure, when I was younger I used to make Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches. You know with the turkey, cranberry sauce, maybe some mayo, and a little stuffing all wrapped up in a couple slices of whole wheat bread. Since I’m no longer a bread eater, the sandwich idea is kind of off the table. But of course, this non-bread-eating lady had to find another way to repurpose those leftovers!
Holy wow, it’s November. How the heck did that happen? Not that I’m complaining. This time of year is my absolute favorite time of year! You already know how much I love all things pumpkin, so I’m sure it’s no surprise that I love all the other fun aspects of fall like the leaves changing colors, the crisp cool air, getting to wear boots and scarves, and of course a delicious warm cider or hot chocolate at the end of a chilly day.
