I've been meaning to share some good eats with you, more or less ideas rather than strict recipes. The first was Brittany's Kale w/Peanut Sauce. Absolutely delicious, you should make it ;) And if you have some leftover peanut sauce, I'll let you know that it also works as a pasta sauce. I thinned it with a little starchy pasta water, tossed it with the cooked pasta (I had some Spicy Thai Linguine) and a ton of julienned veggies for an amazing dinner! If you want to kick up the heat, serve some Siracha (the rooster sauce) on the side!

Another morph came when I was making Janetha's taco soup. I always remember my need to utilize my crockpot more when I make delicious recipes like this!! When thinking of an accompaniment for the soup, I was leaning towards cornbread when I remembered something I'd seen who knows where... cornbread croutons! I took some of my Summer Squash & Basil Cornbread since I had just made it and cut it into ~1/2" cubes. Sprayed with a little nonstick cooking spray and spread out on a cookie sheet, these croutons will bake up in a preheated 350degree oven in no time.

Are you a fan of croutons? I don't actually like them in salads, but I loved the crunch in this soup :) Definitely one I'll have to remember as I make more soups/stews as the temperature drops...
