Pumpkins, pumpkins, & more pumpkins

Sam & I cut up our Halloween pumpkins (uncarved) yesterday, took out the seeds (cleaned, boiled & left to dry overnight). We are currently toasting the seeds with a little butter & salt.

We also roasted the pumpkins. Let me just say that I need a bigger roasting pan. It took 4 batches, at 90 minutes each. We have about 20 cups of pumpkin puree in the fridge!

We have a soccer game today, and I have a bunch of house chores (sheets, rugs, laundry, cooking, baking) as well as a few work tasks, planning our schedule for the week.

One of the main ways I stay on track during the craziness is to have a menu plan, so here goes! Oh, and we have a salad with every meal. It's so routine, I don't even list it. M doesn't consider it dinner unless there's a salad. :-)

  • Sunday - pumpkin soup + goat cheese crostini 
  • Monday - leftover chicken/almond rice pilaf
  • Tuesday - leftover soup + roasted chicken on the side
  • Wednesday - fiesta casserole (using up leftover salsa from when my parents were here)
  • Thursday - baked chicken & pesto pasta
  • Friday - leftover fiesta casserole
  • Saturday - out. At a soccer tournament.
  • Sunday - coming home late from a soccer tournament. Pizza from the freezer when we get home

What about you? What's on the menu for the week? Any good pumpkin puree recipes to recommend?
