Five Food Friday

Some things I wanted to share but didn’t want to devote a whole post to.

1) Roasted spaghetti squash seeds

We didn’t carve a pumpkin this year, but everyone kept posting delicious looking seeds.  I kept these when I made my last spaghetti squash, and roasted them with a bit of maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, and salt.  So good.


2) Sauteed Spinach

Spinach is probably my favorite green (sorry, kale lovers), and when it’s cooked with garlic, onion, truffle oil and topped with honey goat cheese, it’s game over.  I never share (still not as good as I had Florence).


3) Thai

As I told Colleen on her DOHmestic post, I wanted to cook Tuesday night but then was exhausted just thinking about shopping and planning and couldn’t go through with it.  The hubby and I got Thai instead.  I ordered all appetizers (even though their Pad Thai is my fav) – tofu spring rolls, vegetable skewers, and a salad.  This peanut sauce is to die for.


4) Pumpkin butter = heaven.  Honey goat cheese = sinfully delicious. Together, on toasted cinnamon raisin bread?  DO IT.


5) Valerie’s Cloud 9 Cookies

Her blog, Une Gamine dans la Cuisine, is always filled with incredibly tempting baked goods.  I lightened it up a bit – fewer chips, subbed out some of the butter – and mine turned out puffy and fudge-like.  I’d make her recipe exactly the next time.


What randomly delicious foods did you have this week?  Any foodie weekend plans?

    Those pumpkin seeds look great! I’ve been meaning to get a spaghetti squash also. As far as the ginger- is it fresh or dried? How much do you use?
