At the Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend, in between college football games, Jonathan and I made a trip to the pumpkin patch. I had never actually gone to pick pumpkins before and it was so much fun.

There were so many pumpkins to choose from, so it was difficult to decide on one. Finally we each decided and ended up picking much bigger pumpkins than we had intended.

In the end, we ended up with 40 pounds worth of pumpkin. :) We haven't carved them yet, but we will this week and I am excited for the pumpkin seeds. And I found a recipe for pumpkin seed brittle I think I will try....

The Best Recipe Website

So, as of late, I've been spending a lot of time on http://allrecipes.com/. I love this website. It is excellent because other people review the recipes, so you have more of an idea about what you're getting into before you're elbow deep in some questionable concoction. Today for dinner I made the "Savory Crescent Chicken." They were so good.

Okay, so the picture might look a little questionable, but trust me, they were delicious, and easy. When I went to make them, however, I realized I had run out of a few things, so I had to use my improvisational skills. Instead of adding onions, like the recipes says (because I had somehow run out without noticing) I used part of a green pepper I had left over. I also added four strips of bacon because bacon makes everything better. When everything had cooled down I made the filling, adding about a tablespoon of French mustard and some shredded cheddar to a cream cheese/butter/milk mixture. You then just wrap pre-made croissants around the filling and bake. When they came out they were so cheesy and delicious. I will definitely make them again. Next time, I'm sure they'll be a little prettier.

There's my little rant about dinner. I love it when I take a chance on a recipe and it comes out so good. Check out All Recipes. It rocks.
