What's Eatin?

This week will be different because of a Grain-Free 4-Day Detox (stay tuned for more on that) and a holiday and some ministry opportunities coming for the weekend. I really do love using my love of cooking for ministry opps – everyone loves food, right?

Monday: Making something similar to this pork roast and serving it with sweet potatoes and sautéed apples. Think cracker barrel.

Tuesday: Sautéed seafood with taco seasoning – think Taco Tuesday – with a salad (my husband will more than likely have it with a tortilla and cabbage).

Wednesday: Cabbage and Kielbasa.  I’m trying to win my husband over with this meal.  It is something I loved when growing up and now I’m just making it because I had the kielbasa on hand and needed a cheap meal.

Thursday: DATE DAY!  Since our marriage retreat got cancelled a few wknds back, my hubs took the day off and we are doing us-stuff.  That includes conversation, coffee shops, and lunch date!

Friday: Chocolate-covered strawberry pop tarts for Valentine’s Day breakfast, Crack Cookies to take to some widows for VDay – more on that later as well, stay tuned – and then my hubs cooks me a rather awesome steak each year on VDay and with it we are having roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus.  Don’t know about dessert yet.  We shall see.

Saturday: Having some friends over for a brunch on Saturday morning.  These rolls will grace the table.  This sparkly beverage.  And a delicious quiche.  Keeping it simple.  But, delicious.  And about friends and conversation and a pretty tablescape.

Pumpkin French Toast

When the husband is gone, its a good idea to tantalize him to come back home if you send him delicious pictures of pumpkin French toast. Really – I did send him a picture and he said I was mean. I’ll make these again for him.
But, these are perfect with a topping of real maple syrup and whipped cream.

1/4 cup whole milk
1 1/2 T sugar
1 T light brown sugar
