Dinner: Sausage Cauliflower Spaghetti

Mike picked up the latest Food Network magazine for me and last night we tried out one of their everyday weeknight recipes.  This was sooo easy, budget friendly, and tasty.  Very robust and great for cooler fall weather.  Asa gobbled up all of the cauliflower without any coaxing.  (Granted he inhales his food so fast he might not be able to taste.... but still a good sign right?!)

Here's the recipe.  We used pork instead of turkey and cut back on the oil - worked great!

*Special Note* - Mike made the meal himself!

Don't they belong in Paradise?

Luau Time!

At our multi-family yard sale earlier this summer a bag of luau party stuff didn't get sold - so we acquired it.  Naphtali and I decided that we should throw a luau before the summer was completely gone so we did it this past weekend - complete with plastic coconut cups for the drinks, flower straws, and every other cheesy thing we could find at the Dollar Tree.  A little chilly but not too bad!
Seth and Naphtali manned the "Tiki Bar."

I tried a couple different Hawaiian pulled pork recipes and finally found a couple we liked.  

Mike finally got to wear the Hawaiian shirt that has been in his closet since high school.

Cabinet Climber

The camera was right beside me so I couldn't resist snapping a few shots!
Going for the candy.
True testament to the strength of the cabinets!
