HWFD: Pumpkin Apple Spice Waffles

This girl is my new best friend. I saw the photo for these waffles and thought "I need those in my belly. Now." The recipe did not disappoint. They were fabulous! We've had these for Sunday brunch the last 2 weekends. I substituted some of the spices in the waffle mix for the Pumpkin Pie spice mix from Trader Joes - just used an equal amount of spices. I also used regular coconut milk instead of canned. I didn't want to bother with opening a can for just a little bit. And maybe I wanted to save my one remaining can of coconut milk for making pumpkin ice cream later this week. ;)


Pay especially close attention to instruction #10. :-D

HWFD: Spiced Pork & Butternut Squash with Sage

My sister R's boyfriend B sent this recipe to me earlier this week. As it turned out, I had a pork tenderloin defrosting in the fridge and I had just roasted up some butternut squash that was waiting to be eaten. (Actually I roasted a butternut squash and 2 other kinds of squash that I forget the name of. But, they were squash. I figured they would work.)

Recipe here
A weird substitution - I didn't have fresh chicken or beef stock (I make my own) so I used 3/4 cup of water, a dash of poultry seasoning for flavor and 1/4 cup of apple cider, just because. It was great - the pork was so nice and tender and the seasoning was perfect for a fall meal.

Happy Friday, friends! :)
