Suzy Homemaker: Fall Edition

Oh man… the kitchen smells so good!

With Dennis and me both working freelance now, I’m cooking more these days than I ever have. I rather like it. Tonight’s menu is inspired by a trip to a country-side pumpkin patch yesterday.

It was rainy, muddy, and cold, but we still had a great time. This is Rachel, a friend who’s also the editor of InStyle magazine here. Ooh la la!

So for dinner, I’ve got spaghetti* on the stove,

and squash and cinnamon apples in the oven. Oh man… the kitchen smells so good!

But as good as the kitchen smells, this is what I’m most excited about. Look at our adorable table decoration via the pumpkin patch!

And on the chance that those lousy photos have you hungry…

*Amy’s Only-Half-Cheating Spaghetti

  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce (go ahead. get the cheap stuff in the tin… it’ll still be delish.)
  • 1 type of this vegetable, chopped (tonight it was mushrooms)
  • 1 type of that vegetable, chopped (and zucchini)
  • 1 type of more vegetable, chopped (and one onion, and 3 cloves garlic)
  • 1/2 pound of ground meat (we like turkey)

Cook veggies. Cook meat. Mix both with sauce and heat. Serve over noodles.


Amy! Just hearing you say you are enjoying cooking puts the BIGGEST smile on my face. I so love that you are embracing your inner chef and look how yummy it looks. You just can’t go wrong with pumpkins whether decor or in a tasty dish it evokes Autumn! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous smile and dishes-Miss you. K

Looks great! If it were possible, I’d hop over and invite myself for dinner! Love you, lots!
