  1. A week’s worth of recipes?! Love it! Thanks so much – this is fabulous.

    If you have time, be sure to stop by my blog on the wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar life at: I’ve got a dinner/dessert recipe up for this week’s blog. Feel free to post a comment with your link.

    Happy eating!
    Heather :)

  2. we had pumpkin lasagna a few weeks ago and it was delicious!! What a delicious meal plan this week!!

  3. this sounds delicious. I like your theme days. I would love to have the time to make fresh pasta. I’ve even given away my pasta machine because I couldn’t imagine ever using it again.
    The nut roast recipe is delicious and I don’t really think it matters what nuts you use. I once substituted ground almonds just to make up the amount. With all the seasonings you don’t taste the nuts much anyway.

  5. That leek potato soup sounds yummy! :) Have a wonderful week!

  6. Darn it. I started craving greens when I saw that you’re having them, and of course I don’t have the ingredients. I’m going to have to have that eggroll recipe too=) John’s been bugging me to make them after I told him about Kate’s spring rolls.

  7. Hi Heather! I stopped by your blog, hope you saw the comment. :)

    Hi Miles! Always nice to see you. I can’t wait for my pumpkin lasagna!

    Hi Kate! Thank you. You know, I’m thinking I’ll try rolling the pasta by hand this time. It sounds more time consuming, but you know, I think I spend most of my time fighting with the pasta machine rather than the pasta itself and I think I’ll save time. Almonds, perfect. I’ll try it!

    Hi Natalie- yes, it’s seeming like creamy soup season, somehow. That and DH had some at the pub this weekend and I was jealous. heh heh.

    Mary- I feel so good when I eat greens… they’re the best. I’m working on tweaking the eggroll recipe. I have the technique down, just need to get a killer filling recipe. The one I had was so-so. (But my potsticker filling was delicious!)

    Yay! Visitors! Happy dance, happy dance.

  8. OO, i am so excited about the potstickers! I miss them so! I have also decided to gift my pasta machine to a friend and ask for a new one for christmas, so i can try your pasta recipes without hesitation :)
