More Recipes for Monday

Sigh... it is so sad to see another weekend come to an end. Hubby and I had a great time walking for Race for the Cure to support my friend Erica. It was actually somewhat chilly in the morning, which was nice! To celebrate at school we made pink mustaches for all the boys, and someone even showed up with pink shoelaces!

And after doing Race for the Cure, I REALLY want a pair of these!

We spent the rest of the weekend being SUPER lazy. Many naps were involved. We also were able to catch up on our shows, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family and a new one: Pan Am! Have you guys watched it yet? It is actually somewhat intriguing!


So the 30-Day Go Fresh Challenge is almost coming to a close. We only have 4 more days left! For the most part, we actually made everything that we ate from scratch, or we went organic (ie making chicken broth each week was getting a little too hectic). Or, we would try to eat out at restaurants that promoted local and organic menus, like Ruggles and Stella Sola. Hubby's Birthday made it a little difficult to not eat at home all the time....

To celebrate finishing the challenge we are going to have a huge vegging out party involving ordering a pizza along with lots of Ben & Jerry's! Speaking of which, have you heard?



I'm so excited to try this on Friday (the day we are allowed to quit the challenge). But I have also heard some stores are banning the flavor? I hope it is just a rumor! 

And now on to our recipes! Last week we made:





This is the dressing we used. I would have made my own, but I couldn't find fresh cranberries so I went the lazy route!

Hope you guys had an awesome weekend! I'm so glad October is here! Did you do anything fun this weekend? Have you been catching up on any good shows?

Happy Monday!
