Fall has officially arrived, even if it’s not reflected in the weather. Yet.
Even though it’s still pretty darned hot, my weekly menus start to shift to more comfort food about this time of year. I also switch the bed sheets to flannel and sweat it out until the cool weather rolls in, but I don’t suggest you do the same.
My menus and fall-back meals tend to change pretty frequently, based on new recipes I’ve tried, or whether or not I’ve looked up the calorie content for a meal (depressing, nine times out of ten).
So here’s what’s cooking on a regular basis this Fall here on the mini-farm:
I don’t know how many times I have made this pasta since the first time I posted it. I can tell you, that it has been a lot. At least once a month, probably more. And it makes the perfect fall comfort food with the earthy mushrooms and smoked paprika.
I make this sandwich any time we have leftover pork. And sometimes I cook some pork chops and leave them in the fridge for a few days so I can pretend we have leftover pork, so I can make this sandwich. It’s an easy weeknight meal, and so spicy it’ll warm you up, even on the coldest night.
This really should say “Mexican Food” instead of just nachos. It is so easy to make a delicious meal when you make Mexican food. Tacos (soft and crunchy), fajitas, nachos, enchiladas, all these things are made regularly at our house.
This recipe went crazy on Pinterest last year, and for good reason. Apple Pie Moonshine is the best Fall adult beverage around. It also is easy to make and would be a great gift. We keep some on hand all Fall.
So what is in your menu rotation this Fall? Do you change things up every year, or do you keep things the same?
