@keevolpi:  I definitely think soups are great fall food, you could maybe even cross over into the stew world. Pork seems to be big in the fall so I think pulled pork could be an excellent option!  Maybe even a pulled pork with a more fall spin (like not the traditional BBQ?).  No specific ideas but it sounds like you’re on the right track!

In the fall you could even start pushing thanksgiving type foods (turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc.) Anything with cranberries!

Hope this helps or at least gets some ideas flowing for you 🙂

Turkey! When I think fall I think Turkey and mashed potatoes. 🙂

Have a GIANT pot of chili. XD With alllllllllllll the fixins. To me nothing says fall louder than chili and soup.

I got married in November and we just had chicken picatta, chicken marsala, grilled seasonal vegetables, and roasted potatoes. Everything was nice and warm and satisfying. But we spent more $ on the booze than food, so..XD!!!!

ETA: For Thanksgiving this year I made a crock pot full of apple cider and a half bottle of Smirnoff Caramel Vodka and it was THE BEST EVER. My friends literally drank two gallons of the stuff. That’d be a fun cocktail twist and it would be warm! Also, comfort food = macaroni and cheese. That’s cheap as dirt. 🙂 Shepherd’s pie, anything warm and yummy.

Yes on the soups! My friend got married on a rainy, chilly fall day and all I remember is the pumpkin soup. I couldn’t even tell you what else was on the menu 🙂

@keevolpi:  Definitely some kind of mac and cheese… I had a great one this weekend with a Panko crust and little cubes of roasted butternut squash.

I am getting married in the fall too. We are doing a big spread of appetizers and things instead of a big main meal. I am going to incorportate pumpkin and possible some other thanksgiving type things. I considered soups but wouldn’t the possible messiness be kind of scary?

@keevolpi:  We haven’t gotten a whole lot narrowed down yet. My uncle does this kind of thing every year at his Christmas party so we are going to use a lot of the staples he normally has. Seafood stuffed mushrooms, varity of meatballs, some tortilla roll up type things. He makes this pumpkin stuff in mini phillo dough tarts that is amazing, I am still getting ideas. I might try to make mini versions of fall like food. I feel like this is an easy way to keep everyone happy and have everyone get something they will like, with so many choices everyone is bound to find something they will enjoy.

Definitely the shepherd’s pie or cottage pie, that’s a big autumn comfort food.  Anything involving apples or pumpkin.  Split pea soup is a big one here.

@keevolpi:  I went to a wedding where they did paella. It was three types, I think one vegetarian, and it seemed to be cost effective and fall-ish!
