Talking I love fall cooking

Right now I've got a pan of roasting lemon rosemary chicken breasts and another pan of roasting cauliflower, cabbage and squash with sage and large cracked black pepper (and olive oil of course) in the oven. It's COLD outside and it smells sooooooo good right now.

Tomorrow it's crockpot chili and the next day I think a chicken and veggie stew!

What are your favourite fall time meals?

I love Fall so much I try to force it, even when its not really the right weather. We've having stew tomorrow, and it's supposed to be 100 degrees! Oh well. At least the crock pot won't heat up the house too much...

Fall cooking is fantastic. It's right up there with cooking during a snowstorm.

We had our first fall weather last weekend and had a nice veggie and turkey chili to celebrate

My favorite thing about fall??......the crisp blue sky. It is just so much prettier in fall than in any other month. I love the home fragrance I put out for fall too. I have a fragrance called Autumn Leaves in my oil warmer right now, and it smells fantastic. I also love fall fashion. I love the great weather when I can jog outside anytime of day without worrying about it being too hot/cold. There is nothing I don't love about fall.
Even though in my head it is already fall, I am just not ready to cook fall foods yet. Still too hot. But I love soups and stews. I also really want to try spaghetti squash, which I have never tried, so I am looking forward to trying that.

I LOVE FALL!

Navy beans and bacon (or ham) stew in the crock pot with just-out-of-the-oven corn bread on the side. Apple crisp with just picked apples. I love fall as well - my favorite season of all! The smells, the colorful trees, the crisp air, burning leaves, roasting marshmallows - it's just awesome.

i live in ireland so we dont really get much change in the seasons, just different types of rain! so the only way i know the seasons have changed properly is by the prices of the veggies in the supermarket. right now sweet potatoes and butternut squash are really good!!! i'm making a baked butternut squash risotto style dish tonight, (no cream or cheese!!!) and i'm making a roasted red pepper and butternut squash soup right now. tomorrow its brocolli and cabbage soup!!! i love all these autumnal flavours.

also i live in a really rural area so i love seeing all the hay bales in the fields and the leaves turning!

I love fall too - so many fun activities relating to fall - pumpkin patch, apple picking, Halloween, scarecrows in people's yards, changing leaves, and the stories that come with fall.

I love to get out the crockpot and make different things. Also - it's time for chili, white bean & chicken chili, soups, stews, chicken a la king, bean and ham soup, corn bread, etc.

yay fall!!! i love the coooool crisp days for walking - no excuses possilbe due to weather LOL And I love having a well-stocked freezer, lots of ready-made meals for those late nights when you're dying and a fastfood burger would be sooo easy but NOoooooo there's a pre-portioned yummy supper just waiting for me! yay! I made a ton of veg soup with my garden harvest, and even good old cooked chicken - when it's a jillion degrees you just don't wanna turn on the oven! now i've got lots precooked and ready to put on a salad or sandwich wrap, some marinated in fajita spice beforehand! loving it!
