It’s so nice to put a meal in the oven and have the whole house smell scrumptious! It’s one of those little pleasures of life! Even our garage smells amazing on days I’m doing a lot of cooking. This week’s menu is a salute to fall and all its delicious aromas! YUM! Here’s what’s on the menu this week!
Fall means a big bowl of hearty soup! And this Sausage And Kale soup is perfect for dinner tonight! So easy to put together on a busy workday!
Truth be told I don’t like kale so I may swap it out for swiss chard. And I’ll change this recipe just a little bit more by adding the suggested cannellini bean swap in Holly’s recipe for chickpeas.
I grew up eating salmon cakes but the ones on the menu tonight are not my mom’s salmon cakes!
These are filled with aromatics and have such a gorgeous complex flavor. And I serve them with homemade tartar sauce which is so much better than anything you can buy in a store!
If you don’t have an Air Fryer, this is the one I recommend and use.
I have never roasted a flank steak before. I usually grill it quickly.
We love flank steak and this recipe makes this delicious meat easy enough for a weeknight meal.
Leftovers will be used on Saturday and for lunches! I love food I can cook once and use another time… or two!
I love mashed potatoes but not everyone in our family loves them by themselves. I mash them with celery root and tonight I’ll try mashing them with leeks. Oh, I love the mild onion flavor leeks infuse! And these mashed should be wonderful with the steak!
We eat with our eyes first and this bone-in pork chop recipe makes me so hungry. It’s beautiful!!!!
The grilled polenta cakes sound divine. I’ll switch out the goat cheese for feta.
The story goes that a chef after a long night of cooking for his clientele would make “bacon and eggs” using pasta. And that is how Pasta Carbonara was born. However it came about it is a gift to the world!
What an easy and so delicious main dish. This dish should be in your culinary repertoire because it is great when you just don’t know what to cook and don’t have much on hand!
This recipe is an O-L-D post! I just can’t bring myself to update the pictures because they are of my son and daughter-in-law when they were newlyweds. And this dinner was at my beloved StoneGable!
Today’s fish pie is a first for me. It sounds divine! We’re having a couple friends over for a cozy fall dinner so I’m excited to have them also be taste testers!
- DOMINO POTATO, COD, PRAWN AND CHORIZO PIE
- BALSAMIC HONEY ROASTED CABBAGE STEAKS
- SLICED GARDEN TOMATOES
Roasting a chicken is one of the top 10 things I love to do! My home smells delicious, the chicken tastes delicious, I have leftovers, I make chicken stock with the carcass, I can make a scrumptious light gravy or sauce from the drippings and I can make this chicken with my eyes closed!
Just a head’s up… this post is horrifically old. The images aren’t quite right but the recipe is really perfection! If you make one thing this week make this chicken and then make it often!
- THE PERFECT CHICKEN
- ROASTED CARROTS AND POTATOES
- MAYBE LEFTOVER MASHED POTATOES AND LEEKS FROM WEDNESDAY IF THERE ARE ANY
