Fall here in Lancaster County came right on time this year! For the last few years, fall had a hard time getting itself together so it felt like we were still in the fall season at Christmastime! But not this year! Yay! It’s beautiful and cool-ish and I’m ready to cook some delicious soups and stews and hearty fall food!
The menu this week is varied and tasty and the extra recipes at the end of the post are fall on a plate!
Enjoy this week and make some great, scrumptious food!
Here’s what’s On The Menu for the week of October 17th.
Chicken Piccata is one of my favorite meals. Delicious, lemony, and easy to make. Treat your family to this company-worthy meal.
This scrumptious recipe is from one of my favorite foodie blogs, A Pinch Of Yum.
And the salad on the menu pairs wonderfully with the Piccata.
- LEMON CHICKEN PICCATA WITH GRILLED BREAD
- ARUGULA WITH SHAVED PARMESAN, PINENUTS, AND A LEMON VINAIGRETTE
We are such carnivores here at StoneGable! And we love steak in all its forms! This is such a beautiful recipe! Steak and mushrooms! YUM!
If you can’t find steak tips try using flank steak.
This recipe is from The Kitchn.
- EASY BALSAMIC GLAZED STEAK TIPS AND MUSHROOMS
- HORSERADISH MASHED POTATOES WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS
- PERFECTLY ROASTED ASPARAGUS
Our family was here for a long weekend and my daughter Jacqueline made us this fabulous dinner using the recipes below. This is now one of my very favorite dinners! And guess what… she left the leftovers. Delicious and fresh! A must-try!

Have you ever had Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp? If not make reservations tonight and GO!
Really, they are addictive and absolutely scrumptious. My son Christopher and I went to lunch on Saturday and shared a pile of them.
I’m ready for a copycat version I can make at home anytime I want this delicious dish! And I’m thinking I can probably use the recipe to make Bang Bang Chicken!
Thanks, Dinner Then Dessert!
Salmon is a hearty fish that is heart-healthy too. And it is even better when served with a sweet and garlicky sauce! Wild-caught salmon is pricy but so healthy so this is a meal I splurge on! And I am not a fan of Sockeye Salmon I opt for another variety of wild-caught.
I like to cook an easy dinner on Fridays because Bobby and I usually watch a show or play cards or a game. This salmon dinner cooks up in about 15 minutes so it is perfect for a Friday night in.
This yummy recipe comes from Rasa Malaysia.
Pasta is one of my family’s favorite dinners! So we are getting together and Grandma Lo Bianco’s Meatballs and pasta are on the menu.
I make a double batch of these delicious meatballs and freeze them for a quick meal!
Is Sunday dinner still a “thing”? I love having a delicious and filling dinner on Sunday with family and/or friends.
Tonight my best friend is joining us for a delicious and easy baked chicken from one of my favorite foodie blogs. Thanks, Natasha from Salt and Lavender.
- CREAMY BACON CHICKEN
- SOUR CREAM AND CHIVE MASHED POTATOES
- ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH BROWN SUGAR AND PECANS
TREAT OF THE WEEK
Oh YUM! We all love carrot cake! And I especially love this cake because it is made in a 9 x 13 pan! I’m going to try to make it early in the week and freeze it and then thaw it and ice it for our family dinner.
Carrot cake has so many beautiful flavors that feel like fall!
This wonderful treat comes to us from Holly at Spend With Pennies.
