If quick, easy and flavorful is your thing, then you have to make these Cajun Chicken Sandwiches. They took less than 30 minutes to throw together from start to finish...and possibly to being in your bellies. That makes them the perfect weeknight dinner at our house. And as always, they make tasty leftovers which we're always looking for. The key to these sandwiches is using a tasty Cajun seasoning, I use Louisiana Cajun Seasoning and it does not disappoint.

This pasta hit the spot. Mr. KMW declared it was one of his favorite pastas that I have ever made. Although, he seems to do that a lot when I make pasta...with the Spicy Pork Ragu, Penne Vodka with Salmon, Linguine with Clams, Butternut Squash Pasta Bake, Pasta with Pancetta with Leeks...really the list could go on.
The brussels sprouts, chorizo and mushrooms not only complemented each other in flavor, but the textures really blended well together. And having brussels sprouts just make a dish feel healthier in general...despite the amount of oil used.
I found this recipe over at Playin With My Food, I made a few minor changes and added chorizo, because I love it. This recipe was such a hit in our house, I'll definitely be keeping up with Playing With My Food to find recipe inspiration in the future.
I really didn't know what to call this soup...or stew.
I started out with the idea of a Butternut Squash Minestrone, then quickly realized I used all my chicken broth up with this Butternut Squash Risotto and did not have any elbow macaroni. So to the pantry I went!
Luckily I had a ginormous squash for the risotto, so there was plenty of that left. I used crushed tomatoes, milk and half and half to result in a delicious, creamy stew broth. Add in potatoes, butternut squash, spicy chicken sausage and kale and you have a soup that's as colorful as fall foliage and is bursting with flavor.
One other result, you fight over who gets to bring the leftovers for lunch. Luckily, I dominate at thumb wars.
I know, it has been FOREVER. I've been really busy at work and we've had a lot of visitors in October. Both mine and Mr. KMW's coworkers have questioned if we're running a bed and breakfast on the side, we're not...we just love having our friends and family visit.
I'm going to make it up to you by posting a very yummy recipe....Creamy Butternut Squash Risotto with a flavor filled Maple Soy Glazed Salmon on top. Fall deliciousness.
Before I get to the food here's a little more detail of what we've been up to the past few weeks.
My cousin from Missouri made a pit stop in Seattle as part of a longer trip, and we spent a rainy night watching the Sounders soccer game. Sounders games have such a fun atmosphere, we often try to fit a game in when visitors are in town.
Our friend Cole visited and we hiked up to Lake Serene. It was, well...serene, one of the prettiest hikes we've been on since moving out to Seattle.
When it comes to the Pat's vs. Geno's debate, I'm on Team Pat all the way...whiz with onions. When I'm 2,800 miles away from Philadelphia, I'm on team Kiss My Whisk. Thanks to Cooks Illustrated, I've found a darn good make at home option. All it's missing is the whiz, but I can definitely solve that next time!
