My hubby is traveling on business. I have three kids. I have a king-size bed. When Hubby is gone, the three kids fight over who gets to sleep with Mommy in her big comfy, select-comfort bed that she loves so much. Sometimes we settle it like human beings, rotating who gets the honor. Many times there are arguments, tears and fights. Usually, they all fall asleep in my bed and then I sneak the lightest kid back to his/her bed. Occasionally, I leave all three there and then I go sleep in one of the kids’ beds. Last night, the Princess got the boot. But she avenged herself by showing up at 5:45 this morning and squeezing her little body into the crowded bed, right next to me. She spent the next 30 minutes squirming and wiggling until I surrendered, kicked her out and got up to start my day.
On the food front, there is good news: Pomegranate season is upon us!
My family adores pomegranates. Must be our middle-eastern blood.
And after last year’s experiments with pomegranates, I’m thrilled to have another go with this ruby-red fruit.
If you are swimming in sweets and pumpkin baked goods and need something healthy, here’s the dish for you:
Butternut squash, pomegranate syrup, pistachios and pomegranate arils. The hubby and I couldn’t get enough of it. You could even substitute squash with pumpkin – not the purée, but the real thing.
If you don’t know much about quinoa, I wrote a post about it a couple months ago.
Super healthy. Gluten-Free. A complete protein source.
Serve something healthy, but full perfect for the Fall season this Halloween.
