Some fall yummies…

November 16, 2011

Although the sun has been shining, it is COLD outside. I’m not a huge coat wearer, I usually just slip on my vest, but lately I’ve been remembering to bring my jacket along to combat the cold. I’ve also been making lots of yummy fall recipes that will warm you to the core. (Oh and PS: most of these recipes are quite budget friendly, especially if your hubby lets you get away with serving a meatless soup for dinner!!)

Please please give one of these a try, you will not be disappointed 🙂

*Turkey Chili – Yum, yum! I shared only a few days ago on here, but this is a reminder to go make it!!

*Creamy Cauliflower Soup: One of my favorite food blogs, Annie’s Eats, didn’t let me down with this delicious soup. Cauliflower was on sale a few weeks ago for $0.79 a head, so this was a SUPER economical dinner choice! Do NOT skip the Dijon Mustard, at first I was skeptical but it is SOOO good.

*Bacon Mushroom and Brocoli Quiche – This is the most adaptable recipe EVER! Use what you have in the house, even if you just opt for cheese and bacon or ham, so good. This recipe also freezes great. I usually bake it as usual, and then freeze it, however, I’ve heard you can freeze an unbaked one as well. They reheat awesome, and are perfect for those long days with the kiddies.

*Cream of Asparagus Soup: A favourite at our house. We had it for dinner tonight, and for the first time in weeks, Lucas gobbled up dinner without any prompts. Needless to say this is a near miracle for this kid 🙂

*Homemade Sandwich Bread: If you are looking for a go-to bread recipe, look no more, this is the ONE! The Hungry Mouse gives a fantastic step by step blog post on how to make this bread that it is almost error-proof. I’ve been meaning to substitute whole wheat flour for at least half of the white flour, but I haven’t been willing to sacrifice that oh so yummy slice of white bread fresh from the oven. I’ll let you know how it fares..

*Cheddar Bacon Dip: Okay, okay, so this totally doesn’t fit the whole cold weather food, but this is perfect dip to have on hand while watching TV at night, or hosting friends, it’s YUMMY! My favourite thing is that basically all the ingredients are straight from what I usually have in the fridge – the best kind of recipe.

Have a good evening! The couch and my book are calling my name 🙂
