Yes, today we have a fashion and food combo post 🙂
We are having torrential downpour here today in Seattle, but I guess I shouldn’t complain too much given many people on the East Coast are without power. I’ve still got that at least. So do my in-laws in NY thanks to their enormous generator that my father-in-law bought after the last power outage – he likes to be prepared. Hope everyone is staying safe!
I’m actually writing this blog post from Starbucks, just hanging out here this afternoon getting some work done. I don’t know why but I haven’t worn my mustard jeans yet so decided it was definitely time to take them out of the closest. Mustard cardi yesterday, mustard jeans today… I’m also participating in Marionberry‘s trend of the month challenge: Boots + Booties tomorrow, so be sure to go check out how everyone wears this fall and winter staple.
For dinner last night I made these amazing burgers (well sliders, so mini burgers) from PaleOMG. Her stuff is sooo good. Wish I had doubled. At first it will seem like there is a lot of spices in your bowl, but just keep mixing into your meat and I promise you won’t be disappointed. Michael won’t eat mushrooms, so I just sauteed onions to serve over the sliders – why don’t I cook onions like this more often, so delicious! I served with whole green beans (1 bag of frozen) that I simply put into the microwave with about a TBSP of butter, a tsp of crushed garlic, salt & pepper, and then topped with parmesan cheese once finished. (mine took about 6 minutes in microwave to cook, stirring in the middle)
And while we are talking food, I must recommend my new favorite cookbook, Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook. It has fabulous recipes and great ideas for quick and easy meals.
With things like Sausage and Pear Stuffed Acorn Squash…
And Pork and Apple Sliders served with Gingered Rainbow Chard…
You can’t go wrong.
