I forgot to mention one of our new favorite shows! Feasting on Waves airing on Food Network with Alton Brown.
I'm making a new Giada recipe tonight: creamy orzo. Normally I would run from anything with peas, but this sounded good. Giada's Everyday Italian cookbook has a lot of great stuff in it, including a section of quick and easy weeknight recipes. Ben doesn't crave Italian as much as me, but he's game for the occasional carb-crazed dinner (extra bonus tonight: he loves peas).
The tree outside my window already has some leaves turning red. It's time to break out the fall decorations.
Have a good week!
