Here's what we ate last week:
Yes, we actually made our own pumpkin puree! It was actually really easy!
All you have to do is:
1. Cut out the stem of a medium pumpkin
2. Cut the pumpkin in half
3. Remove the seeds
4. Roast on a pan in the oven 45 minutes to an hour at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (until you can break the pumpkin with a fork)
5. Let the pumpkin cool for at least one hour
6. Remove the skin from the pumpkin, and puree in a food processor.
Makes about 8 cups of pumpkin... now you have enough for risotto, muffins and a pumpkin cake!
OK OK and I have to make a little confession.... we didn't make our own mayonnaise! *Gasp* We are just feeling exhausted from making EVERYTHING from scratch, and are trying to take it easy this week. But we did get Organic Mayonnaise and I did find this awesome recipe to make for the future:
I promise to share more on the amazing meals we made this weekend, including Chili Rellenos, Charro Beans and Fresh Roasted Salmon with Olive Oil!
Happy Middle of the Week to you!
