Pumpkin Kugel #SundaySupper

Pumpkin Kugel
Pumpkin Kugel brings fall flavors of creamy pumpkin and crunchy pepitas to a simple noodle pudding recipe.
Years ago I worked in a Deli. It started out as a Jewish deli with all the trimmings. We carried sable, lox and pickled herring, knishes, tongue and of course, kugel.
Few items passed my twenty-something taste buds with flying colors. One of those was my boss’s sweet kugel.
Kugel, also known as noodle pudding can be made sweet or savory. We offered several versions in house. Raisins and cinnamon was my favorite.
Kugel can also be made with matzo or bread. I’ve only tasted it with noodles so I’m a bit partial.

Today’s Sunday Supper is all about my orange friend, pumpkin.


Simple Pumpkin Recipes #SundaySupper
Before we know it, September is going to be over… and into October we’ll go, straight to the pumpkin patch! Stores are already stocking up for Fall, whether it’s your local supermarket with pumpkin-themed baked goods and shelves of early Halloween decorations or your neighborhood coffee shop brewing up pumpkin spice coffee.

Naturally, we want to keep up and get involved in the pumpkin-themed fun! For this Sunday Supper, dish out your best simple pumpkin recipes. We want simple pumpkin recipes from breakfast to dessert and everything in-between, snacks and drinks included. Keep it simple and have fun!

Do you remember this simple pumpkin song?

Me neither, but I thought it was cute!

Pumpkin Kugel seemed like a natural recipe for this week’s event. Creamy pumpkin helps coat these tender noodles. I added pepitas or roasted pumpkin seeds to give it a bit of crunch! I can’t believe how good this recipe turned out. Don’t take my word for it.

Caesar Salad Stuffed Shrimp shares it’s flavor with the famous salad. Diced tomato, cucumber, olives and feta stacked atop a moist, tender shrimp. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan. Serve with a side of Caesar dressing for dipping.

I love a good Caesar salad with chunks of cucumbers, olives, red onions, juicy ripe tomatoes and lots of Parmesan cheese. A few croutons for crunch isn’t a bad idea either. Shrimp adds a nice portion of protein to top it off.
Shrimp is one of my favorite foods. Without sounding like a movie cliche, I can eat shrimp boiled, fried, baked, in casseroles, on and in salads. I even like shrimp on a stick. Tropical Shrimp Kabobs.

Shrimp is only one of many great seafood choices. Consider trying scallops, clams and mussels as protein replacements for some of your family favorites.

Seafood can be a great addition to any heart-healthy diet. Starting with just two servings a week you can do something good for your heart. Seafood is rich in Omega-3s which are proven to be good for heart health. (Source)

Packed with lean protein, seafood helps give you the energy to get you through your busy day.
Seafood offers something for everyone. Purists can enjoy a mild fish like flounder with just a squirt of lemon. Salmon lovers know their fish can take a variety of sauces and still have its flavor shine through.

Spice it up with blackened seasoning, toss some shrimp into a creole or add some clams to linguine and you are on your way to better health.

Many people fear cooking seafood at home.

Here are some tips from http://www.seafoodnutrition.org/
Cook it safely

  • Check oysters, mussels, and clams before cooking. If shells don’t clamp shut when you tap them, throw them away. After cooking, also toss any that didn’t open.
    This means that they may not be safe to eat.
  • Cook shrimp, lobster, and scallops until they are opaque (milky white). Cook fish to 145°F, until it flakes with a fork.

Stock up on canned tuna or salmon for a quick economical weeknight meal. Think outside the box and add salmon to make classics like tuna casserole a new dish. Canned fish also makes quick sandwich spreads and protein additions for salads.
