What to Cook this Fall

September 25, 2010 | By | Comments (1)

I'm so excited that summer is finally ending. I quit acknowledging anything summer related weeks ago. I've been thinking about sweaters and soup related activities for at least a month now.  Here's what my fall palette is craving and it will finally be cool enough in my kitchen to turn the stove on.

Beet-salad
Roasted Beet and Shallot Salad Over Wilted Beet Greens and Arugula — I love beets. Roasting them and serving on a salad with goat cheese is my favorite. This year I'm going to venture out and try the beet greens too.

Veggie-chili 
Slow-Cooker Veggie Chili — I printed this recipe out weeks ago. It's gotten 5-stars by 23 reviewers, it's got to be good. And hearty. And loaded with nutritious veggies. And perfect for chilly weather.

Pot-roast 
Pot Roast with Wild Mushrooms and Thyme — Every fall/winter I say I'm going to cook one of these. This fall and winter is no different, except that I'm going to do it. I will keep you posted and invite you over for roast beef sandwich leftovers.

Double-crust-apple-pie 
Double-Crust Apple Pie — I rarely like to mix fruit with dessert. But since this pie calls for double crust (double flaky, buttery goodness), I'm going to give it a go and add a double scoop of ice-cream (to keep the theme, obviously).

What food says fall to you?
