-Cauliflower pizza crust! One of my friends has made it a few times and keeps telling me how awesome it is!
-More crock pot meals. This is very general but I want to use our crock pot for dinner more often. I have a few recipes picked out and made my first pot roast yesterday!

@MrsBeck: I made “cheese sticks” with cauliflower and they were pretty darn tasty! I have read the pizza crust recipes and they basically sound like the same thing.
Also +1 on the crock pot – I’ve made a couple of chilis and a soup with mine in the past few weeks and FI is requesting more! I love it.

Cream cheese filled croissants!
Well I’ve made them a bunch but I’ve been busy every Saturday for the past month! I prefer to make them Saturday since it takes pretty much all day to make them and I need to be home on and off for it so that I can bake them Sunday morning. I will be gone this Saturday too…ugh!
I’ve been dying for them!
@tmsing: I love trying curries but I have a hard time finding good recipes! I love thai curries so trying to make something that compares to a good restaurant is really hard!
Also more baked potato soup (in the crockpot)! I made some a few weeks ago and I need more!

@mrs_pudding_pop: yay thanks for sharing! I just keep forgetting to grab the stuff I need for the crust every time I go to the store!
DH isn’t a chili fan or else I would be making tons of chili! It was so nice coming home yesterday and not having to make dinner!

At the moment I have greens from the garden I need to blanch and freeze, tomatoes to make into sauce and chicken to make into broth. Also would like to make fresh bread and use some of the pumpkin I froze recently.

@kes18: Yeah for curry I always feel like you need at least 15 ingredients so the few times I have tried making curry it probably wan’t quite right. I also love Japanese curry and want to try to make it someday. Heck, I’d like to know how to cook Japanese food in general. And Turkish. And Greek.
@ImmaBee: This is the recipe I used for the first time I cooked fish and cooking it in wax paper or foil makes it very moist http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/red-snapper-en-papillote-recipe/index.html
@MrsBeck: Cauliflower crust I would definitely eat but somehow it seems like a process to make it. I would love to do that and other cauliflower substitutions though like cauliflower mashed potatoes.

@bella128: Mind if I ask what exactly you grow in your garden? Do you have anything growing for the winter?

Pumpkin cheesecake. Must try!
Post # 12
Just came off the whole Thanksgiving thing last weekend… and taking care of the leftovers (ie making Turkey Soup etc)
Now we are moving into the “Fall Phase”…
*I still want to make those Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls that I posted about earlier today*
As the days get cooler (snow in the forecast for some of Ontario later this week… YIKES)
I like to start making some heavier items (many of which can be frozen and pulled out and easily reheated for the pre-Christmas rush)…
Soups – Chili – Stews – Lasagna – Boeuf Bourguignon – Apple Crisp – Apple Pudding etc.
So my Kitchen Tools change at this time of year, as I get busy with the Stock Pot & Roasters / Dutch Oven
Usually pull out the Crock Pot once Winter is officially here…
Definitely do more cooking during the bad weather months than the good ones.

To @Westwood: oooh Pumpkin Cheesecake, there is something I haven’t done in a couple of years… may have to add that one to the list

I have a pretty good sized list
- Pumpkin muffins (I haven’t made them once yet)
- Pumpkin butter (will be part of christmas gifts this year)
- Apple sauce
- Breakfast cupcakes (found on pinterest)
- Grilled cheese pizzas (my daughters have been begging for them)
- Cabbage rolls
- Bread pudding
- Chille rellenos
- Potato soup
And so much more I cant think of at the moment…

@This Time Round: There’s something about cooking hearty meals this time of year, isn’t there? FI made meatloaf the other night and I swear if we’d had mashed potatoes I’d have been in heaven…lol 🙂

@tmsing: My inlaws have a big garden at their farm that the whole family eats from – we get kale, rapini, lettuce, onions, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, peas, beans, pumkpin, apples and herbs. We live pretty far north so the growing season is over – its starting to frost over night and we’ll have snow soon unfortunately. Do you garden?
