Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween friends!!!!  To celebrate this year, The Boy is a pilot and The Baby is a skeleton.  We have already begun to celebrate this holiday.  This past week was a busy one.  We had our Fall Festival at Church where the kids came in their costumes and played games for candy, The Boy had his Halloween party at school where they trick-or-treated to other classrooms and then came back to have ice cream sundaes, made jack-o-lanterns, and played games.  He had a great time.  Today we are hanging out in our costumes and making some fall favorite, a pumpkin roll!!!  We are getting ready for a fun filled night of trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.  Have a fun and safe Halloween!!

Potato Hash with Spinach and Eggs

The other night I made one of my favorites, breakfast for dinner. You can't really go wrong with that.  Breakfast is the most important and delicious meals of the day.  As a birthday gift last year, my brother subscribed to Martha Stewart Everyday FOOD for me.  I love it!  So many great new recipes to try.  In the October issue, she had a Potato Hash with Spinach and Eggs.  My Hubby is in loves with anything that has potatoes and eggs!  So this was a winner before it ever began!!  YUM!!!

3/4 pound small white potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
coarse salt
3 T unsalted butter
1 med yellow onion, diced small
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and diced small
1/2 t re-pepper flakes

8 Eggs  (I used 4)
1 ounce grated Parmesan (1/4 c)
1T chopped fresh parsley

1. In a large skillet, bring potatoes to a boil in slated water over high.  Cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, about 6 min.  Drain.

2. In skillet, melt 2 T butter over medium.  Add onion and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 10 minutes.  Add potatoes and red-pepper flakes; season with salt.  Cook until potatoes are golden, 3 minutes. Add spinach and 1 T butter and cook, stirring, until butter is melted.  Make four wells in potato mixture.  Crack 2 eggs into each well and reduce heat to medium-low.  Cover and cook until white are set but yolks are still runny, about 6 minutes.  Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley and serve immediately.

Spicy Pulled Pork


So, yesterday I went to the grocery store and debated for way to long over weather or not to make pulled pork this weekend...I know, silly.  Anyways, I went ahead and bought a pork shoulder.  For many reasons, it tastes great, we can eat on it a few days, makes great leftover pizza, did I mention it tastes great and I won't have to cook for a few days after!!  When I sat down to type this blog, I went to Pioneer Woman's website to get the link for the recipe and came across this one...Spicy Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork!!!  Can it get ANY better than that!!!  I don't think so.  So, this weekend I am going to try it out.  I am really looking forward to this one.  I think it will be a family favorite.  I mean, who doesn't love Dr. Pepper!!!  It must be the Oklahoman in me.  Hope you try it too!!  I'll let you know how it is.
