Pumpkin disguised as a Watermelon?


Look what I found hiding amongst our local Farmer’s Market’s selection of watermelon.  It’s a pumpkin pretending to be a watermelon or maybe it’s a watermelon pretending to be a pumpkin?  Not sure, but it sat straight and pretty in my fridge.  It’s viney remnants made for a perfect handle to pop open the top and scoop out it’s juicy insides.  Yum!

We are eating as many as we can get our hands on cause they are absolutely tasty this year. 😀

My Randomkiddos put in a request for cantaloupe as well.  I’ll have to see if I can find one tomorrow.

I know that I owe ya’ll an update on my create space, but as of this morning it’s looking more like The Storage Space rather than anyplace to create anything.  I have been relegated back to the kitchen table, but I’m sure I’ll have an updated and finished Create Space soon. 😉

What’s on Your Plate??

It’s time for another installment of… What’s – On – Your – Plate???
Here’s this week’s selection…

Surprise in the Pan

We were low on food for me this week so I had one of my all time fave fall backs the Surprise in the Pan.

This time I cooked up some bacon and cut it into bite sized pieces then sautéed halved new red potatoes in olive oil until they were crispy and brown then I sprinkled the bacon all over and cracked 4 eggs into it cooking them till just soft baked so all the yummy egg goooooodness was still inside. I topped with thick slices of Monterey Jack cheese and drizzled ranch dressing and homemade honey mustard sauce over the top. Ohhhh my goodness! It was so delish!

This is by far my favorite type of dish now. It is so versatile and Always comes out absolutely fantastic!

So, there ya have it…That’s What’s on My Plate… Now, what’s on yours?

Roasted Garlic Yum.JPG

Roasted Garlic……….. Oh-My-Gooodnessss!!!!

Can I just say that if I could, I would Eat THIS ALL of the TIME!!!!

I’d eat it plain, on meat, on veggies, with melted cheese, plain…did I say plain??

Ohhhh, I’ve NEVER had this before.  First of all, it filled my house with Awesomeness!  The smells in here are heavenly now.  😀

Secondly, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the website I got the recipe from said to just sqeeze the bottoms and the garlic would pop right out….I did and it was just like butter!  Garlic butter..without the butter!

I only drizzled a little olive oil over these and sprinkled a little salt and pepper and baked….Oy Vey Everyone!

I will ONLY make my garlic like this from NOW on!

The best part?  I can store them for 2 weeks in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer!  Wowsers!!

Okay, so That’s What’s on My Plate.  What’s on Yours?
