Monday Musings + Creamy Stovetop Pumpkin Mac & Cheese (Kid-Friendly)

1. I had a fabulous time in Kennebunkport, ME with my mom last week! Our rented cottage was 1/2 mile from Goose Rocks Beach on Goosefare Bay. We took twice daily (sunrise & sunset) walks on the gorgeous sandy beach with the dogs,

cooked some delicious meals, hiked through Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge,

ran along the quiet back roads, and spent a day in Portland, where we split a delicious Maine Lobster Roll at The Old Seaport Grill.

2. While in Kennebunkport, I discovered the simple joy of eating oatmeal out of a mug.

Pumpkin stovetop oats with candied walnuts, fig butter, and creamy almond butter.


3. Today on The Back Burner blog, I’m sharing a kid-friendly version of my Pumpkin Mac & Cheese from last fall.

This version features colby jack instead of gruyere, and is every bit as delicious as the original.

Don’t miss the recipe!!
