Back in the saddle

"I feel like I've eaten nothing but cabbage soup, forever."
(Name that movie?)

I'm devastatingly embarrassed to report that my family has eaten roasted vegetable soup for nearly three weeks solid, in one form or another. Beets, cauliflower, onions, squash, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes...all exemplary vegetables (name that movie?). But really. There comes a point when you realize the merit of serving a soup for days on end simply because you inadvertently made enough to feed the Hun army...and made it four times in a row...well, the merit quickly wears off.

I finally threw out the last half gallon of cauliflower (onion, carrot, potato) soup, froze the full gallon of (sweet potato, potato, carrot, onion, beet) pumpkin soup...and it was time to COOK.

Baby, I'm back.

Chocolate Syrup

Spaghetti squash bake (my family sends HUGE thanks to Ms. Alexandra for the recipe inspiration. Seriously yummy stuff.)

Vanilla Yogurt

The best rolls I've ever made. (They better be the best, with twice the normal oil and sugar as my regular recipe, PLUS eggs and powdered milk. Oh snap, these are great. Family, watch out- I'm ready for Thanksgiving "bread duty.")

All in all, not a bad way to spend an hour and a half in the kitchen during nap time!

And I couldn't name any of the movies.

Considering I'm the twin with three TVs, and cable...I have a surprising LACK of entertainment knowledge!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

Those rolls look so yummy! Glad you like the spaghetti squash. It really almost tastes better than pasta.
