Friday Fall Foodies


I wonder if I lived somewhere with little change of Seasons 
I wonder....
would I eat the same dinners all the time?

Nothing like a new season to change up the dinners around here.

We've had :

Stuffed Green Peppers

Butterflied Capon

Trader Joe's Tip Asada

Chili with homemade Cuban Bread

and

Chicken with Apples and Onions. 

What have you been having for dinner?
How's your knitting going?
and
We change the clocks on November 2nd. 
I'm giving Zach an extra hour of sleep for his birthday this year.

Oooo, you're eating well Kathy! I definitely feel the need for stews and pots even though our seasonal changes around here are minimal at best (nothing easier than a Bay Area meteorologist job, ha!)

I'm still trying to finish my first pair of socks and first hat for the beanie along. That's the weekend goal. Have a good weekend!!

We have been on the go lately so we have been eating a lot of the same things just to make it easier. (Nothing to do with the weather). Thankfully, we haven't been eating a lot of junk food, just easy things like roasted chicken sandwiches (for two days) and a big pot of spaghetti which will last a week with just the two of us here. I've been craving a nice shepherds pie so maybe tonight!

As soon as it gets cool I start making soup and bread. I love having the house smell good all day from whatever is simmering in the crockpot.

I have three sweaters and three pair of socks on the needles, not mentioning several other boring WIP's I have laying about. I am in over my head but I have all winter to sort it out.

We just got home from vacation and I VOWED that we will eat more often at home. Of course, the fates laughed. When we got home the dishwasher died immediately. So, the new one comes next week, but I still VOW to cook.at.home!!! Tonight is tortellini soup and onion rolls.

You would change it up because then at least it would seem like the Season's were changing, I should know!

What's this knitting of which you speak?

And yes. This time of year, we do more soups and stews. I eat pumpkin year 'round, but I love the fresh ideas for it!

Well let's see...we've been eating lots of chilli and corn bread and beef stew and cheese biscuits. All the while gearing up for turkey next month. See we always have this whole month long build up to turkey day. :-) We talk about how hungry we are for it and how good the house smells while it's cooking pretty much from now right up till Thanksgiving. On the knitting front I'm frantically knitting away on my cable socks so I can free up the dps for some mitten knitten.

We change foods with the season, too, Kathy! First pot of chili coming up this weekend!! Yea! I'm still working on my Morticia KAL. And, a couple of other things. I'm trying to RESIST starting anything else! LOL! I think the cooler weather makes the knitting urge stronger, too. blessings ~ tanna

The seasons surely change my meals. Recently I've made a couple batches of homemade chicken noodle soup in the crock pot. I put lots of veggies in it. Yum. I like spaghetti and meatballs this time of year, too, with fresh cooked broccoli.

I eat heavier meals in the Fall and Winter - thick soups and stews, crisp bread, and casseroles.

Very little knitting done this weekend - I'm knitting more scrap yarn socks to bring my stash under control.

I love the IDEA of cooking this time of year--lots of pumpkin and soups and stews--but I'm always in a mad dash to finish canning, so the menu thus far had contained a lot of grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches with soup. Not as exciting as your menu..........

When we lived in Miami you did sort of eat the same way all year round. I also have been to the beach on New Years Day! If the weather dropped to 70 then my grandmother would make soup or stew. Otherwise we really did eat the same thruout the year!! It wasn't until I was 19 and moved to Long Island that I experienced true seasons. While Orlando doesn't really have the seasons like NY, it has more than Miami! I will at least get weather down into the 30s, even if it's only for a week!
