Menu Monday 2/9-2/15

The weather has turned cold here again and we're turning toward more comfort food. I find it hard to balance the carbs and the approaching swimsuit season. Scary to think of that when it's only February. But even in Northern California, we get hot weather quickly. Anyways... Valentine's Day is Saturday and instead of going out, we've opted to host a family game night at our house. So I'm "throwing" Spaghetti at the kids and we're munching on finger food. Yum!

As for the Pumpkin Soup we made last week, we found it to be rather bland. We're a family who loves dishes that are packed with flavor and this one was lacking. I added nutmeg, cumin, oregano, and garlic powder to punch it up a bit. I also doubled the pepper and more than double the salt. We also served it with parmasen cheese. Next time I'd rather try this Mexican Pumpkin Soup.
