We are on a food adventure, trying to use local produce the majority of the time. Or at least start with what we find at our farmer’s market. Last weekend was the first time since we started doing this in March that we didn’t make it to a farmer’s market or stand, but we did go to the Red Barn Farm and bought butternut squash and pumpkin, which we cooked, so I’m counting it.

Here are the food highlights from last week:

The biggest highlight was white chocolate and Nutella truffles, which Jake and I made together. He brought these to the office, which made him wildly popular, because these puppies are one of the very best things you can put in your mouth. Also, they are way easier to make than you’d think they’d be.

Autumn Golden Vegetable Lasagna

As a happy autumn veggie celebration and a last hurrah for our garden basil, we made Autumn Golden Vegetable Lasagna (but we roasted real pumpkin and butternut squash instead of using canned and frozen, as the recipe calls for). This is time consuming to make, but so delicious.

Chicken Carbonara

Because the theme this week seems to be heavy cream, we made Chicken Carbonara with peas. Our menu should be on the lighter side next week for sure.

Biscuits and Gravy

Jake made one of our favorite breakfast-for-dinner foods, biscuits and gravy (which is basically this recipe with pork breakfast sausage swapped for the apple chicken sausage and bacon). We usually DIY the biscuits, but we got the pre-made kind so this could be a low maintenance dinner night.

That’s our food highlights for last week! Have you been eating anything delicious lately?
