Favorite links 10/23

Do you know what’s not really a good idea? Determining that you have to finish a long, comprehensive post before you start writing other blog posts…and doing so when you only have short chunks of time for blog writing. But I finally finished this post about pickling, so theoretically you will get shorter but more frequent posts from now til the end of the year. And if you follow me on Instagram, I can guarantee more frequent posts with plenty of mountains, fall foliage, and soon snow.

Anyway! I have a backlog of links to share, so I’ll stop rambling and start linking.

Stomach food

Unashamedly sharing all things pumpkin – pumpkin pie baked steel cut oatmeal (favorite breakfast recently), pumpkin cake for two, classic pumpkin bread that uses the whole can of pumpkin, vegan pumpkin scones, pumpkin chai crumble muffins, and pumpkin protein balls.

All the soups, too – Iranian-inspired chickpea noodle soup, spicy posole, and pressure cooker split pea soup.

Still more comfort food meals: root vegetable pot pie, spinach quinoa lasagna casserole, and creamy garlicky pasta with charred broccoli.

Desserts to finish it off: smoky chipotle gingerbread caketeff oatmeal cookies with whiskey currants, and triple chocolate sweet potato brownies.

  1. You can never go wrong with all the pumpkin things!

    I feel like every American needs to read the ways to be a better voter. In Australia voting is compulsory which I think is important – but I also think it’s important to make an informed decision and not just what someone else tells you to do!

  2. I think that this is the first year that I’ve almost wished for pumpkin season to be over because it means that election season will also be over. That’s when you know something is horrible–it makes you not want pumpkin any more!
