Here’s a delicious late fall dinner menu plan and some recipes to make for the holidays…
Soup is almost always on the menu when the weather turns chilly.
And this soup full of vegetables looks amazing!
I might switch out ground turkey for hamburgers to make it WW-friendly! Thanks, Serena for the delicious soup to add to my culinary repertoire! Go to Serena Bakes to see more fabulous recipes. Serena Bakers is one of my favorite food blogs.
Salmon and pasta work together wonderfully in a dish! Instead of using heavy cream I’ll use Greek yogurt and evaporated milk in equal amounts. This is a really beautiful dish!
WEDNESDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
On busy days my slow cooker is my best friend! I can start dinner early in the day and let it cook away while I’m working. Photoshoots, styling, schlepping decor up and down the basement, editing, business call, etc.
And that’s not homekeeping or doing something outside of work. I hope you use your slow cooker and enjoy delicious homecooked meals. Another wonderful recipe from Closet Cooking.
I make this enchilada recipe often. It is soooo good. If you like southwest or Mexican food as I do, give these a try. From Ali who has one of my favorite foodie blogs, Gimme Some Oven (love that name!).
I have such a love/hate relationship with pork. When I was a little girl living in Scotland and England the pork was HEAVENLY! But now it’s sorta tasteless.
You know what foodies say, “The taste is in the fat”. I’m pretty particular about where I buy pork and how I cook it to try to get the best flavor out of it I can. I am so excited to try this slow cooker, bacon-wrapped pork loin! Thanks, Sabrina from Dessert Then Dinner.
Baked acorn squash is on the menu tonight too. I really love the mild pumpkin flavor of this beautiful funny squash! If you haven’t tried baked acorn squash yet you really should. YUM!
I bet you did not know that I get a little squeamish eating most fish with cheese. I heard that fish and cheese don’t mix when I was young and ever since that I have had a hard time eating the combo. I know I’m missing out on lots of great fish dishes but I just can’t! So this is one cod recipe that looks amazing! From House And Garden.
SUNDAY- FAMILY DINNER
I LOVE Sunday dinners! The family home and my little babies toddling around my feet while I try to cook. I’m a gal who loves all her “chicks in the nest”. Dinners should be absolutely scrumptious and evoke memories but also be easy to prepare. I could make this chicken in y sleep! Now that’s what I call sweet dreams, right?
TREAT OF THE WEEK
What is your favorite Trick or Treat candy? Mine is a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup! And second is a Butterfinger. So I’m going to use all the leftover butterfingers from Halloween to make this yummy dessert. And just because you did not ask… Marie Antionette (before beheading) was my favorite Halloween costume! Thanks, Danelle from Let’s Dish.
