Sunday, December 8th

Sarah Kramers Banana Pancakes with TJ's Maple Syrup and Yves Breakfast Patties for breakfast...
A bowl of  'Sweet Potato Bisque' $9 from The Randy Radish for lunch. Very elegant.
Randy Radish 'Seitan Roast with Kale Stuffing' with Imagine Mushroom Gravy and Roasted Butternut Squash for dinner. Orange food is good.
Randy Radish 'Harvest Cake' $6 for dessert. Spice Cake with Sweet Potatoes, Dried Cranberries, Walnuts and Butterscotch Frosting. The Candied Walnuts on top really made it special.
So far we've only gotten 4-5" snow. Not as bad as anticipated. Except for the non-stop football on TV.

You received more snow than we did! Hopefully the extreme chill doesn't travel your way as well.

Sweet potato and squash are great orange foods! And in such delicious looking meals! Butterscotch Frosting - yes, please.

A very orange day!

That cake looks divine and the pancakes are so cute! I wish I could eat banana! I have yet to find a good and quick recipe for pancakes! I'm attempting to find a two-three ingredient sweet potato pancake recipe but no successful ones yet.

Randy is so fancy! I can tell he even puts that soup through one of those double mesh sieves to get it silky smooth.... Glad there was some bread to dip in there.
Roasted butternut is a simple favorite for me-nothing sweet on it though. Just EB and salt.
Dessert looks great! And the frosting takes it over the top.....

Glad your snow wasn't too bad- we got a little in nyc this afternoon, just enough to be obnoxious. Guess what??! My parents adopted two kitties today! Al is five years old and his brother Piggy is nine, big chubby guys who are very mellow- i get to meet them in two weeks.....

We got about the same amount of snow that you did. I'm pretty much disgusted and hope it melts before Mike has to go out in it for PT.

Lots of pretty orange today. I'll take your breakfast!

We got a dusting of snow and I was annoyed, ha! I can't imagine how annoyed I'd be with 4-5" and still falling. Looks like you definitely had some great meals to keep you warm and cozy though. Breakfast looks really delicious. I have to agree that orange food is indeed delicious and you had some great looking orange treats! That cake is gorgeous and sounds really great. I think spice cake is so underrated and butterscotch frosting sounds great!

Do you intentionally color coordinate your days? We're enjoying our first winter in short sleeves and flip flops.

Haha, nice color scheme today.
I don't see much kale, or stuffing really, in that seitan roast but I guess that's okay.
I'm spicing more booze for the holidays this year... I bet a spice cake would also be a welcome gift. Butterscotch frosting sounds incredible.

It's another brown and orange day! I had no idea brown and orange were so delicious until I read your blog.

Does the Randy Radish park in your driveway?

Hey Now!!!!

Ingrid, we've been very fortunate that the ice didn't pull down our power lines or trees. Butterscotch rules! Especially with 9th graders;-)

VGG, orange is better than brown. If you find a good Sweet Potato Pancake Recipe, post it for all of us please.

Unknown, god bless your parents for adopting ADULT cats!!!!! You come from good people.

RVs, maybe the Physical Therapist will give Mike exercises he can do at home...like cooking and cleaning...

Sarah, a dusting of snow can hide treacherous ice., so it's annoying in its own way. I'm sure you'll get your massive wintery dose of the white stuff soon enough.

Jenny, cough! cough! hurricanes! cough! cough!

FF, there was just a little bit of Kale in the Seitan, but it packed a big wallop. I once soaked Raspberries in Vodka as an Xmas gift for my Dad, but don't think it was a big hit. How can you spice booze?

Hannah, and I never heard of Cedar City, Wattleseeds, Bush Tomatoes and a zillion other things till I read your blog. So we're even.

Abby Bean, I should show how I buy the Randy Radish grub in bulk on Saturdays. That may help make sense for folks seeing me eat their goodies all week long. Thanks for the idea.
