savory sweet weekend

this weekend we experienced our first glimpse of autumn weather since moving to austin. slightly cooler temps, overcast skies, and a 5am thunderstorm to boot. needless to say, for me that translates to cooking with fall flavors: pumpkin, sage, thyme, and a roasted bird.

friday night’s menu:

roasted eggplant soup :: warm bread & arugula salad w/ pine nuts and currants :: sage roasted chicken :: pumpkin bread pudding

(i said a little prayer for our chicken and thanked him for his life)

sunday morning’s menu:

mimosas :: crispy bacon :: buttermilk biscuits :: eggs over arugula & goat cheese :: pumpkin pancakes

it’s warm again today…eh it was good while it lasted.
