Food just makes it all better

I have had a very good food weekend.

Check this out:

Homemade Thai red curry (veggie) over mixed grain rice

Pad Kee Mao (Drunken noodles)

Breakfast - Pancakes with homemade banana caramel sauce

Lunch - Grilled goat cheese and pear sandwich

Dinner - Homemade squash (OK, pumpkin from my parents' garden, but close enough) and goat cheese ravioli with homemade tomato sauce (inspired by recent restaurant meals this week).
