I love these posts when I have tons of good food to share! This past weekend Michael and I had no plans, so we relaxed and enjoyed. We did what we do best; shopping, yoga, walks, and of course cooking! Sometimes cooking can feel like a chore to me but this weekend it was calming and peaceful…something about mixing up ingredients to make something wonderful. Plus there really isn’t anything better than a house smelling of delicious food!
Saturday morning was welcomed with hot coffee and an apple pancake puff!
The recipe has a lot of egg in it so texture wise it is more frittata like than pancake. Either way, it’s amazing. I was inspired by the few apples we had left from apple picking last month so I decided to use them all up! I made an apple bread to be enjoyed for breakfast. It’s so moist and delicious!
I love starting my day with something homemade and a cup of coffee…it warms the soul.
A day of cooking leaves me a hungry girl and what is better than comfort food on a cool fall day? Nothing! I made a grilled cheese with some goldfish on the side. So good!
In my effort to use up the apples I decided to make homemade apple sauce. I’ve been taking some to work this week with my lunch and it is so good! I was surprised at how easy it was! I’ll definitely be making my own again.
I added lots of cinnamon to mine so I guess you could say it was more of a cinnamon apple sauce!
Saturday was date night in so we made pan seared scallops with risotto and garlic bread. The scallops were done scampi style and were delicious! Scallops are moving to the top of my seafood list! Wine to accompany dinner!
Sunday afternoon was lazy and filled with football. Michael had put a roast in the crock pot and let it cook for about 8 hours. It was so tender and delicious! The potatoes and veggies were so good too!
I love home cooked meals! We were saying on Saturday how it’s hard to go out knowing we make such good food at home and can enjoy it in comfy clothes!
If you missed them the first time they are back for round 2…pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! Easy and oh so good right out of the oven!
The perfect sweet to a sweet date night!
