Weekly Menu: The first week of October!

Leaves are changing and the weather is getting slightly cooler.  Squash by the truckload are showing up  at farmer's markets and at the groceries...  My neighbors brought a cute bucket of pears over from their tree!

Here's the weekly menu for the first week of October (can you believe it?!) Happy Fall!

crock pot pulled pork... for tacos and leftovers for sandwiches.  still need a recipe for this one, do you have any suggestions?

roasted spaghetti squash with salad

roasted beet salad

pizza with mozzarella, tomato, basil and mushrooms.

homemade pizza sauce (have I ever shared this before?):
1 can crushed tomatoes
1-2 cloves garlic
1/4 C chopped onion
1 T red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
other seasoning such as basil, oregano, etc.
olive oil

heat olive oil over medium heat, add onions and garlic, cook for about two minutes.
add tomatoes and seasoning(s).
cover and let simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes.
this recipe freezes well for your next batch of pizza if you don't use it all!
