Hi there! Long time no see.
The Toddler, the Husband and I traveled to Pennsylvania last week to attend the Husband's brother's wedding last Saturday. Both the Toddler and the Husband were in it and we had a lot of fun. Lots of time spent with family, lots of dancing, and lots of good food. In fact, we found out that the Toddler is a party girl. She was on the dance floor all night until the DJ played a slide show, and then she did this:
We got home late yesterday afternoon and had to play catch up with everything around the house. You know - laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. I am still trying to catch up - hence "Manic Monday" as the title of the post. But I hadn't cooked since Wednesday and I really wanted to do that. And I wanted a "fall meal" since the weather is cooler. On the fly I came up with: grilled turkey kielbasa, pierogies and roasted brussel sprouts.
For the kielbasa, I just threw it on the grill for about 15 minutes or so. For the pierogies, I bought a box of frozen mini pierogies and cooked them up in a skillet with some butter and onions. YUM. I could eat an entire box of these.
I could have also eaten the entire pan of brussel sprouts (which the Husband would be thankful for). For those, I take frozen brussel sprouts and put them in a baking dish and drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Put in a 400 F oven for about 20-30 minutes depending on how brown you like them.
Even the Toddler likes 'em!
What's your favorite fall meal?
