I FINALLY FOLLOWED THE THEME of this month’s WIAW!!!! The day finally came but I’m not sure if this will happen again:) Thank you Jenn for hosting! Pop on over to her site to check out all the WIAW madness!
So I don’t know how you guys celebrate Halloween but here at UCSB, Halloween is kinda A BIG DEAL. I don’t know when everyone decided Santa Barbara was THEE “destination Halloween” spot, but it is, and this past weekend was just another year of the crazies infiltrating Isla Vista. Literally, cray. Go Look.
Because everyone here celebrated Halloween this past weekend and I spent the majority of the weekend in the library or working, I totally forget that the actual holiday hadn’t even occurred yet! So today while I was ellipticalling away (don’t even want to talk about it, other than to say that I HATE THE ELLIPTICAL) I watched some awesome Halloween-themed cooking shows and I came to the realization that I still have two FULL days to delight in everything pumpkin flavored!
I munched on some leftover roasted squash while assembling a clean-out-the-fridge salad. Leftovers are my favorite and today’s treat was leftover Greek Food. MY FAV.
Today’s Huge Jass Salad included:
A random assortment, but it sure hit the spot.
Turkey + Fig Butter + Brie + Tortilla
I threw this one in a pan for a few minutes to let the inside get melty and the outside get crispy = PERFECTION
Roasted Tomato Soup + Spinach
Apothic Red ← totally Halloweeny right?
Moving right along to another one of my favorite blogger link-ups…Foodie PenPals!!! If you want more to learn more info about FPP hop on over to Lindsay’s blog, she is awesome at organizing the HUGE event every month!
So for the month of October, the wonderful Alisa sent me a box full of goodness:
Alisa and her husband are professional chefs, so she really knew how to hook a sister up!
Included in the package was Green Curry Paste, Chinese 5-Spice, Guacamole Takis, and seeds from Alisa’s own garden! She sent me a recipe to make Thai Red Curry Sauce so I’m waiting for a cold day to whip up this dish :) I also REALLY want to plant her seeds in my little planter, does anyone know if herbs will grow in Southern California during the Fall?
Thank Alisa for all the goodies!
Did you celebrate Halloween this past weekend or are you celebrating today?
Tell me what your plans are/what you are dressing up as!!
I will be rocking the Captain Underpants Costume tomorrow. Yep buying little boy underwear definitely warrants some interesting looks…
