Happy Tuesday guys!

Did you watch football last night? I had it on but I’m not really into either team so I was more worried about painting my nails and online window shopping for fall clothes. You know how it goes!

I also made myself a delicious #MeatlessMondayNight meal!

One of my favorite football season meals is kabobs with spicy peanut sauce. But since I wanted to sideline meat last night, I decided to recreate that into this delicious Roasted Sweet Potato Pasta with Spicy Peanut Sauce.

Sounds weird? No! Peanut butter and sweet potato is one of my alltime favorite combos. I’ve been making these Peanut Butter Crusted Sweet Potato Fries for years now and I always drizzle them with sriracha. So good.

So it’s pasta (I used mini farfalle – use whatever small pasta you like), roasted sweet potato, and then the spicy peanut sauce made with Silk Cashewmilk.

I love Silk Cashewmilk so much! It’s one of the only things on my grocery list that I’m willing to go to another store for if my usual store is out.

It is lactose free, dairy free, cholesterol free, contains no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, enrolled in or verified by the non-GMO Project, and is responsibly produced. And that goes for all Silk products!

And it’s delicious! Also, it comes in chocolate which is also on my grocery list each week.

Anyway, I used the Cashewmilk to make the spicy peanut sauce for this pasta super creamy and delicious.

The pasta turned out seriously delicious. The spicy sauce with the sweetness of the potatoes and the green onions just all worked together. I’d be more that willing to eat this meal for #MeatlessMondayNight next week and the week after and probably the week after.

Not eating pasta? Use spaghetti squash! I also love spicy peanut sauce on squash and I bet it’d be extra yummy with the roasted sweet potatoes!

Last weekend the fam and I took a trip down to San Antonio. I mentioned it briefly but I figured I’d do a full recap – tell you how I gained 5 pounds in 2 days, how I didn’t tell my husband that’d he be getting seriously soaked on the water ride at Sea World (my favorite hobby is annoying him), and tell you all about the fantastic Sleep Inn hotel we stayed in.

We’re never ever gone on, like, a fun trip as a family. I mean, for the last 4 years we lived in the greatest city ever (#fact) and we were within 15 minutes of everything we could possibly want to do or see. So there was no need to go anywhere. But our new city is kind of tiny and kind of has nothing to do so we needed to get away.

Also, my kids are finally at a good age for this sort of thing. Finally.

I’ve been waiting for the chance to go down to San Antonio and since it’s such a short drive (about 2 1/2 hours) for us, we could easily make a weekend out of it. First stop: The Alamo.

Happy almost Friday! I made cupcakes!

Guys, I am sick.

Ugh.

It’s about time since the kids have been in school for a few weeks and have all sneezed once or twice. Seriously though, weakest immune system ever.

If you need me, I’ll be Dayquil wasted (I don’t care what anyone says, that stuff makes me useless for hours) and watching Dawson’s Creek all day.

But cupcakes!

Would you be shocked if I told you that I bought the kids’ Halloween costumes on Monday? Or that I’ve had Sofia’s (#halfwiener) costume for at least a month?
