Mmmmm......More Food

I decided I wanted to go food shopping last night after the show so I wouldn't have to muck up my day off today with a chore. Which is funny, because I LOVE food shopping. I love how organized everything is. I love that walking up and down the aisles just opens a million possibilities for things I can cook or bake or prepare. I love everything about supermarkerts. But I decided last night that it'd be the perfect night for a simple dinner. So I bought greens, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella. I bought that pepper that comes in its own little grinder (can we say sucker? I should have bought a real grinder and peppercorns, more economical and environmentally sound in the long run) in preparation for making a nice salad. Which was just perfect. And it went along with my all-time favorite Trader Joe's item. A pizza that's more like a tart with a thin crust, creme fraiche, grueyer cheese, carmelized onions and ham. I sigh inside just thinking about it. I could easily eat a whole one myself. But it was the perfect Sunday dinner.

And today, the 2 most highly anticipated items on my list to do are to make homemade macaroni and cheese with a new recipe that comes highly acclaimed on chow.com and a pumpkin pie to stink up the house with yummy baking smells. *sigh*

Hubby does most of the grocery shopping, thankfully. The few times I DO go, I enjoy it too. I love cruising the vegetable and fruits, finding new things to try.

And being Thanksgiving, I made two pumpkin/orange pies this weekend too!

Of course, it's much nicer to make pumpkin pie when it's chilly outside - not 80 degrees like it is today!!

I want to eat at your house.

I miss Trader Joe's. Stupid not having TJ's Utah. Harrumph!

You are making me hungry. This is such a good time of the year for those comfort foods we all love. And I do love homemade mac and cheese!

I also like the smell of fresh baking bread this time of year.

Crabby - Mac and cheese is one of my favorites, I even adore the blue box kind.
