-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.

  • Coconut beef stew. I keep pushing it off for whatever reason.
  • Salmon…either teriyaki or some other kind of marinade. I avoid buying/cooking fish even though I really enjoy eating it.
  • Cuban roast pork.

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.

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.

@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?
