Definitely the hit of the week and the most flavorful, was this Middle Eastern Grilled Vegetable and Lentil Bowl. I saw this on pinterest and immediately was intrigued. Even since we went to Greece, Kyle and I love yogurt based dressings, flat bread and grilled veggies. Since this recipe had all of them and looked pretty easy to whip together, we tried it out this past Friday. It was so good! Each part of the recipe adds depth and flavor to the entire dish so I would not recommend skipping any part. I loved that this was also a team effort, and Kyle was able to grill all the veggies while I prepped the rest. My favorite part was the roasted chickpeas and the tahini-yogurt sauce!
We also hosted out first party on Sunday (Sunday funday!) and had our Chucktown friends over. I made two batches of the pumpkin-black bean chili and served it with some fresh italian bread. Guests brought some appetizer dishes and desserts. We had such a fun time having people at our home, playing games in our yard, feeding our turtles in the lake, and just overall having a good time with friends. It feels few and far between that we get to do this right now, but we both said we really enjoyed hosting and everyone was great! We ended the evening with some Cards Against Humanity, which is always a good time!

We didn't get to any pumpkin carving, so we decided to get together this week to finish that up before Halloween! I'm super excited to have a house were kiddos will come and trick or treat at! (Oh and just a side note- it's October 27th and 85 degrees here...where do we live?!?)
