this week in my kitchen :: blog hop

Following Heather’s blog hop (from Beauty That Moves) I share here with you what happened in our kitchen this past week.

“A weekly collection of photos from the center of my home.”       — Heather

DSC_0023 copy DSC_0024 copyOn one day we had some special people coming for dinner, I made this new recipe.  I found it on the weekly advertisement of New Seasons Market (our local store) and decided to go for it.  I usually don’t make fancy, complicated-looking meals.  I guess I’m more straight forward, cook in a pot or pan and let’s gather to eat.  But in their picture it looked just so pretty all that quinoa in the cute pumpkins.  So I decided to make it.  Here’s the recipeDSC_0028 copy DSC_0063 copyJust out of the oven (after 2 hours.)

DSC_0085 copyWe paired it with Potato-Leek soup.  Oh, it was so good.  We all liked it.

DSC_0096 copyIt was that good too. I thought.   I mixed it with some kale I roasted in the oven.  It was really good.  But I think if you’ve been visiting here for any amount of time, well, you already knew I love popcorn.

Please do go check Heather’s blog for some meal inspiration.  It has been great gathering all of us there.  So much food goodness.  You should go check it out if you are wanting to see some delicious photos and get inspired for today’s dinner.

    I really enjoyed your post. The potato leek soup looks wonderful. Loved all your photos, especially the one of everyone sitting around the table enjoying the beautiful meal you prepared. That room just looks so warm and cozy.

      Hi Sue, thanks. Yes, it is an everything-room 🙂 Yes, the menu changes with the seasons usually… with whatever is easiest to find, right? Have a good weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

      Hi Christa. Yes… our home is not very big. It is living/dining/library/hang out place, all in one. We love it, and we make it work. Thanks for coming to visit!
