We had black rice with curried vegetables for dinner tonight. Black rice is a new food for our table. A food everyone embraced with enthusiasm, as they dug into a bowl of black and orange food. Fun food because it’s so out of the ordinary to see black rice on their plates. Or should I say Halloween food. It is Halloween week after all, why not have a little fun with food, right?

Looking to make something fun for Halloween? How about creepy crawler spider doughnuts.
The kids and I had fun making these creepy crawler spider doughnuts over the weekend — my younger boys helped glaze while I webbed them, then they put a plastic spider on top (found those at Target for two bucks) for the extra creepy effect.
Autumn is upon us, and what’s better than a soup and sandwich, especially when the day is filled with errands and after-school activities. It was hectic, but no rest for the weary, as the question “What’s for dinner?” confronts me.
To de-stress (and get a laugh) I spontaneously threw a little fun into dinner with my old Halloween cookie cutters. I had to dig way back under other stuff that I don’t see for a year, you know those cabinets. That took longer than it needed to, but it’s a good thing I had soup in the fridge. Ginger Apple Carrot soup is what I made Monday to use up some of the apples I had bought last week due to a strong urge for apples that I couldn’t conquer. Costco had a sale on organic apples in three varieties, so instead of the orchard I went to Costco to pick some apples. Costco was much closer.
Update: Creative recipe winner has been chosen! All your recipe ideas using Bread SRSLY dinner rolls were so creative, gosh it was hard to choose. Look out for more giveaways coming soon!
I am excited to reveal that the winner is … Kimberly’s breakfast strata! I thought the use of the dinner rolls filled with all those yummy strata ingredients would be delicious with the flavor of sourdough for brunch.
I haven’t had a potato hash in who knows how long. Maybe because it’s just potato and onion for the most part. When I opened the fridge for some inspiration I noticed a jar of kimchi hiding in the back. Hmm, sweet potato hash with kimchi. It made perfect sense. But first, I needed to go for a run 🙂
My kids, and husband love lasagna. It brings everyone to the table. Faster than usual. I actually don’t even need to yell “dinner”. They come running in on their own, eagerly awaiting a big square piece of lasagna to dig into. I think it’s on everyone’s comfort food list.
It’s also almost time to reveal the lucky recipient of 2 free coupons for So Delicious products! Last chance to enter (subscribe to enter and I will randomly choose one winner). I will announce the winner tomorrow (Saturday) at Noon PST. Good Luck!
