Happy Fall! I’m so excited that the weather is just starting to turn a little bit cooler and I have some fantastic fall recipes on the menu this week! Yum! Ready for a great week of eating delicious food?
Here’s what’s On The Menu this week…
I made these amazingly delicious pork chops a few weeks ago and we are having them again! For some reason, I especially love pork chops in the fall. I’ll serve them with homemade applesauce.
To make pork chops successfully a bone-in pork chop is a must. The bone infuses lots of favor. Thanks again, How To Feed A Loon!
Here’s my homemade applesauce recipe. It’s a family favorite!
Here’s an easy way to make delicious homemade applesauce: Peel and core about 4 pounds of assorted apples. It’s important to use tart and sweet apples together. Don’t use delicious or golden delicious apples, they don’t have much taste. Put them in a pot with 1/2 cup water and 1/2- 1 cup sugar. Simmer on high heat and then turn the heat to low and cook for about 20 minutes. When the apples are very soft turn off the heat and add the juice of 1 lemon and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. If the applesauce is not smooth you can blend it in a blender or use an immersion blender. YUM! My aunt added cinnamon red heart candles to her applesauce and it was fabulous!

Fridays are fun days! And when pizza is on the menu it is all the more fun!

SATURDAY- SOUP DAY #2
I get a lot of my produce at a farm stand called the Corn Wagon. And I can see the fields they harvest their produce from right behind it. Talk about farm to table!
Cauliflower is in season in my area so I am taking advantage of it by making this gorgeous soup from Seasons And Suppers from cauliflower from the corn wagon.
When I make soup I usually make a double batch so I have soup to freeze for have for lunches.
This is a Heritage recipe. It’s been passed down in my family for generations. And I make it a couple times a month from fall to spring. We all look forward to this easy, peasant type dish!
This is another recipe I can make with no effort at all.
- NANI’S SAUTEED CHICKEN
- MASHED POTATOES

My friend Ann from On Sutton Place is the best baker. Her recipes are always delicious! And I can’t wait to try her apple bundt cake using fresh apples. That is a sign of a very moist cake!
