Fall is slowly beginning to show its beautiful face around here. The temperature has finally dropped back down to the 70's and low 80's with even cooler temps in the evenings and mornings. Right now there are huge, puffy white clouds rolling over head against a background of September blue.
I did have two opportunities in recent days to take a walk through the woods. The trail is flanked by a beautiful show of yellows and purple. Together, these colors make an outstanding combination --so much better in real life than when brought inside.
With all my talk of no time, somehow I did find time to make or finish two bags last week! I felt that urge to do so -- something inside of my crying out to be creative. Creativity refreshes me.
I've been wanting to try this recipe for sometime. It is a Potato-Summer Squash Torte and I highly recommend it.
Sunday I was home with a sick child and 3 possibly-sick children. I wanted a nice Sunday dinner. I did not feel like cooking a nice Sunday dinner. So many times I mentally slump over at the thought of beginning the preparations, and carrying through with, a big dinner. However, I am usually very grateful that I plunged in. This Sunday I was very grateful.
We had the potato and summer squash torte (which was really very easy, just a bunch of chopping), tilapia with an oriental sauce, and a fresh salad with a made up ranch dressing.
Proper Sunday dinner means dessert, in one form or another. This week it was baked peaches with a bit of leftover toffee sauce spooned over at the end of baking.
In case you're wondering, it didn't take long for the house to get back to normal after the festivities last week. :)
