Green Chile with Roasted Pork

It’s green chile time!

This past weekend it finally felt like fall.  Like, FINALLY.  There are times that I just love living in South Texas (like January when it’s 75 degrees out and everyone else is buried under some named snowstorm…Jonas anyone??).  But when September hits, and it’s still annoyingly hot, I’m all take me back to the northeast!  They are boasting perfect fall temps almost every day and I am still dripping in sweat if I try and take a walk in the afternoon.  So in October, when fall finally does make its appearance here, I fully embrace it.  This past weekend was it.  The temp had finally dropped overnight so when you wake up in the  morning it’s in the 60’s, and it warms up throughout the day.  Heaven, I tell you.  So, Saturday morning we put on pants and long sleeves and headed outside.  It was glorious.

Gnocchi mac n cheese…aka crack n cheese

Gnocchi mac n cheese!!  Or as I lovingly coined it, crack n cheese.  That’s what this is!  SERIOUSLY y’all.  Don’t make it.  Don’t ever make it.  Because you will not be able to stop eating it.  I mean, homemade mac n cheese on it’s own is winning, am I right?  But, for real, who doesn’t love potatoes and especially when they are covered in cheese?!

Pesto and Pea Pasta Salad

I had this pasta salad at a local sandwich shop and my daughter gobbled it up, so I wanted to try and duplicate it.  It was pretty easy and came out so good.  It will definitely be a staple for barbecues all summer long!
