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!

We had a chicken nugget at my house last night! Saturdays are usually football day in my house – well, let’s be real Thursday – Monday are all usually football days in my house but Saturday is the most important. But anyway, both of our teams were off so instead of watching all the games like we usually, we decided to have a movie day. Since no movie day is complete without fun food, I ran out to Walmart for the new Tyson chicken nuggets – Spicy and Cheesy! – and whipped up some sauces for dipping.

The new nuggets are so flavorful that they really don’t even need dipping sauces but it’s always fun to dip nuggets, right?

The Cheesy nuggets are so delicious and as the name says, they are super cheesy! They have little cheese pockets throughout the nugget – the kind that oozes out during baking and turns extra yummy. I won’t lie, I cooked up the few nuggets we had left after the kids were in bed so I wouldn’t have to share.

The Spicy ones were also fantastic. My husband has been obsessed with the Tyson Buffalo Chicken Strips for months now so I knew these would be something he loved. And he did. They are spicy but not so spicy that the kids and I can’t handle them.

I served them with my favorite smiley face fries because… well, you never need an excuse for smiley face fries!

This was such a fun and easy dinner! The kids loved having two different nuggets to choose from and 3 sauces.

And speaking of sauces, I used a couple of my favorite fast food chicken nugget sauces as inspiration. The first is hot mustard which is pretty much just like it sounds: a spicy mustard. It is SO good and perfect on chicken nuggets!

The second one is Honey Roasted BBQ which might be my all time favorite sauce for chicken nuggets. It’s a sweet barbecue sauce and it was awesome with the Tyson Cheesy Chicken Nuggets! It is a little more involved but it is so worth it!

If you are like me and always on the hunt for quick dinner ideas that satisfies everyone in your family, make sure you check out the Tyson Spicy and Cheesy Chicken Nuggets! Walmart will be having a demo of the Cheesy nuggets on November 15 so if you want to try them before you buy, make sure you head to your local Walmart next week!

More eggs, y’all!

I made a bunch of deviled egg recipes one day before my husband left (best day of his life) and this was his favorite. He loves everything spicy so of course I knew he would love it.

I did not, however, expect him to kill the whole batch within 30 minutes.

It’s a pretty basic deviled egg recipe but you add a bunch of minced pickled jalapenos and then top it with another jalapeno slice. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your eggs, this is perfect!

So who’s already dyed their eggs? We’re waiting until later this week, I think. Maybe sooner if I run out of ways to entertain the crazies. I had planned on doing the silk-dyed eggs but I never got around to searching for silk ties. Boo! Hopefully next year!
