Lemon Curd

Back in September I made a carrot cake with mango curd filling and whipped cream cheese frosting for Sean’s birthday.  Little did I know what a monster I’d created by choosing this cake.

You see, after Jack tasted the mango curd he became hooked on it.  Not that I can blame him, it was incredibly delicious.

Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup

Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup

Last week I posted a photo of three pie pumpkins in an In My Kitchen post.  I ended up roasting them and baking cranberry pumpkin cream cheese muffins.  I still had some pumpkin puree left and planned on making this pumpkin soup.

Then Hurricane Matthew happened.  The boys were home for three days of school, plus the weekend.  I was busy keeping them busy and out of trouble.  Josh was out of town.  I had a fridge full of leftovers.  The soup fell to the bottom of my to do list.

My parents came for the weekend, planned long before the hurricane was in the picture.  Josh and I were supposed to go to the Nascar race in Charlotte Saturday night for a work function but the race ended up being delayed a day.  It all worked out, we still got a date night out of it since my parents were already here to watch the boys!

In My Kitchen – October 2016

Wow, another month has passed and I’m caught with few pictures to share.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s been a busy month with two birthdays.  I’ll have to settle and use some phone pictures.  Maybe this month I’ll have the time to take actual pictures {note to self}!

We have a lovely new hostess for In My Kitchen.  Please welcome Liz over at Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things.  She has a running list with links to everyone posting for this month’s In My Kitchen link up.

The month started with a trip to the mountains.  This is my favorite time of year, the weather cools a little and there is so much yummy fresh produce.  We went on our annual (sometimes a couple times a year) apple picking trip to Sky Top Orchard.  This time of the season the galas, jonagolds and golden delicious were ripe.  We picked a half bushel of each.
