So it happened… the wisdom tooth is no longer with us. I feel like a pumpkin, a jack o’lantern to be specific!
In honor of my jack o’lantern-ness, tonight had some pumpkin on the menu (I’m so clever eh?) – however I will warn you that I have not been able to taste anything 😦
The Man has confirmed that it’s very deelish, however I am waiting on this tooth to stop bleeding grrr 3 hours now! And I’m getting a bit cranky, not going to lie, I haven’t had food or liquid since 1:30pm and my blood sugar is tanking.
So anywho, I’m going to use this time to post dinner anyways bc it (1) looks deelish and (2) smells deelish so if I can’t eat it, at least I can write about it for you folks to enjoy 🙂
When I got home from work I threw the pumpkin soup
in my fave Paula Dean cast iron pot so it could simmer away and blend up flavors for a while even though the package says 20 minutes is all it needs…. my theory is the longer the better! I think it just sat on the stove for a few hours and didn’t bother me….
Check out how easy this stuff is
I modified (of course) and used just 1 cup of half n’ half in lieu of the cream. Didn’t add any additional pumpkin either…
As you know, I have yet to taste, however The Man reported that this soup is fantastic… which is awesome bc I didn’t know if he was going to like it? It smells sooooo good, I feel like I may be being tortured right now!
I also made some roasted broccoli using this guy
olive oil + garlic…. soooo good. 425F for 20 minutes, voila… and if it tastes how it smells, then I know it was good! The Man has confirmed too, twas good…. *le sigh*
Plus I made mini-sammies using the farmer’s market pumpkin bread and some blue cheese 🙂 these of which smelled really good too (gahhh I am dying here!) and The Man scarfed down first so musta been tasty 😉
Can you tell I can’t wait to eat…. ?!?!??!
Well, The Man just ran to get to the store and get some tea bags…. apparently the tannic acid in those stops the bleeding (sorry, gross I know guys) so I hope this works. 3.5 hours of gauze is not fun, trust me on this.
I hope to be in a better mood tomorrow peeps! Either way, I hope you ALL have a great evening 🙂
