Today while Jackson was at school, Olivia and I entertained ourselves in the Halloween section at Target.
Space age Olivia.
Mad Men Olivia.
Punk rock gladiator Olivia?
Jackson may only be in pre-K, but he occasionally has homework. Today's assignment was to design a family shield.
While he worked on that, I made dinner: Bangers and Mash, from 30-Minute Vegan's Taste of Europe. I used Field Roast smoked apple sage sausages, sauteed with onions, served over mashed potatoes with an onion gravy. If that sounds like a lot of onions, it was. I realized this toward the end of my cooking and decided to strain the onions out of my gravy. Had I left them in, I think it would've been onion overload! But it turned out very nicely. I'm not into many faux meats but I love those Field Roast sausages.
On the side, mushy peas (from the same cookbook). Not much to look at, but quite tasty with a fresh, minty flavor.
I feel like I need to put an English flag here or something.
