Any meal with pumpkin in it is the definition of fall.  Some are skeptical of pumpkin being a pasta sauce and I used to agree with them…until I tried it!  Let me tell you, it was delicious!  It’s a great mix of unusual flavors that actually complement each other very well.  The recipe I would like to share with you today is for Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Alfredo. The sauce is creamy and luscious, and a great autumn flavor as opposed to traditional Alfredo.  I chose to use cheese ravioli, but you could substitute any flavor of ravioli or even use tortellini in this dish.  You could also made homemade ravioli if you have the necessary tools, and time.  Otherwise, store-bought ravioli will work just fine.  (Not only can I cook but I can also rhyme 🙂 ) The recipe can be found here.

Let’s be honest, no one is up early at the lake, but when we do get up we are ready for some Bloody Mary’s and breakfast.  Our favorite is Tito’s Vodka with equal parts Tomato Juice and Clamato plus all the fixings!  We used Ellsworth, WI Cheese Curds, pickles, and summer sausage for our skewers.  Refreshing and a great way to start the day! While enjoying our Bloody’s we whipped up a delicious breakfast of Belgian … Continue reading
