meatless monday: a harvest moon feast

don't tell them but i feed them leftovers

don’t tell them but i feed them leftovers

i lured over some friends for a meatless monday fall feast. what i didn’t tell them was that i was cleaning my freezer out and feeding them leftovers from last year’s round of fall cooking. in the back of the freezer was a large container of apple-butternut squash soup and a large ball of pumpkin gnocchi dough. thus was born a new soup. thawed out the apple-butternut squash soup made up the gnocchi to toss into it and added sweet potatoes, peppers, plenty of curry and ground red pepper. what ended up in the bowl was a spicy, sweet taste of fall. along with it was my harvest salad and bread toasted with horseradish and chives. pass the pumpkin beer and toast fall!
