I am on my way back to Texas as I type this - I think this is the most excited I have been to get back home in a long time. I have been in a certain Eastern state for the week and the temps were in the unbearable range (for this transplanted Texan). Looking forward to making soup, curling up on the couch and catching up on my DVR queue. Since I was not home this week - there was no kitchen time, but I shared two simple meals from last weekend - this creamy sausage tortolle - which I promise will be a go to meal because it delicious, easy and ready in under thirty minutes - what's not to love. Then there was this quinoa salad with apple, pomegranate and almond - so so good. If you are on the fence about quinoa, this is a great place to start. Need more recipe ideas ? Here are some from around the web that I cannot wait to try out (as soon as my November east coat road trip is over).
