So it’s cold here today (well, okay, it’s 15 celcius, so low 60s fahrenheit for you Americans, but it was 32 degrees yesterday…) and I’m planning meals for the next two weeks.
What are your favourite fall meals? I do a lot of stews and soups, like corn chowder, squash soup, lentil soup, blackbean soup, and sometimes beef stew if we’re eating meat. I also make a lot of roasted veggies. I need some inspiration!

Meatloaf! This recipe (well, apart from halfway killing you from the grease), wins over every one of my guests:

We have an interesting spaghetti squash dish (Vietnamese style) Think Spaghetti without the noodles and white sauce instead of tomato. Lots of roasted veggies added to the mix. (I add ground meat to my FI’s meal, but not mine)

I love anything I can make in a slow cooker. I love these shortribs from Rachael Ray:
I also love meatballs, stews, soups, chillis, pork roasts, and chicken and bean pots.

I love autumn and winter food. It’s so much more comforting.
- Proper sausages with puy lentils and mashed potatoes
- Slow roast pork belly with agro-dolce peppers and mashed sweet potatoes
- Chicken and chorizo stew with rice
- Lamb bhuna, chicken dhal curry, vegetable bhaji and pilau rice (a bit more involved but a favourite when I have time)
- Pasta bolognese
- Beef, chestnut and mushroom stew

I made this recipe up 4 years ago and we have it monthly! Wicked easy.
Italian Sausage and Apples in Acorn Squash
1)Italian Sausage (spicy or not to taste, buy ground or remove from casing)
3) Acorn squash
4) bread crumbs
5) real maple syrup <— not needed, especially if youre cutting calories
Dice apple into very small pieces, set aside. Cut squash in half, remove seeds and bake at 350 in glass baking dish face down (orange part down) with a little bit of water in the dish. Once squash has started to soften, flip over and coat with a little maple syrup for sweet taste if desired. Brown sausage in frying pan, add diced apples to pan. Add a handful of bread crumbs to soak up fluid (add a little at a time to avoid too much). Fill squash with mixture and bake for 5-10 minutes. Serve in a bowl.
It looks awesome with the vibrant orange and green of the squash, and is a great dish to serve to guests! Looks impressive and is very very simple to do. 🙂 Have fun!

We like roasts & roasted vegetables. Helps heat the house, is easy & tasty.
We also enjoy soups- our favorite is essentially a soup with homemade ground sausage, leafy greens (kale, spinach, whatever’s on sale), red pepper flakes, chicken broth & cream. I make coconut flour biscuits for dipping.

I love fall foods! Homemade chicken noodle soup, chili, pheasant in the crock pot and lots of mashed potatoes. Carmel apples, cobblers or chocolate pudding with whip cream are my favorite desserts for this time of year.
