How I love the fall! And November at StoneGable is chilly and a bit windy! No matter, the weather makes me want to cook! My home smells like slow-roasting stews and soups in the fall! This week is no exception!!! Here’s what’s on the fall menu…

MONDAY- SOUP DAY
The weather has taken a decidedly colder turn here at Stone Gable and I yearn for a pot of homemade soup simmering away on the stove.
I made the meatballs up ahead so putting this soup together will be easy for a hectic Monday!
I can’t wait to make this soup from Cassidy’s Cravable Creations! Thanks so much, Cassidy!
Hey friends, We just had this gorgeous soup for dinner. Big thumbs up!!!! Bobby had seconds! Thanks, again Cassidy from CASSIDY’S CRAVABLE CREATIONS!
Here’s how I tweaked it a bit. Instead of using dried basil I used 2 heaping tablespoons of Pesto (from Costco in the refrigerated section) and we made some GF spaghetti noodles and broke them in little pieces, cooked and drained them and added them to the soup! And if you are not dairy-free add a big handful of grated Parmesan cheese to the pot! Or better yet use about 2 inches of Parmesan cheese rind.
And I don’t see why you could not throw any leftover spaghetti sauce that is lurking around the back of your frig to the soup too.
I also gently heated (not even a simmer) the soup for about an hour with the meatballs in the soup.
This is a must-try soup! So so good!
TUESDAY- SLOW COOKER
I was so so intrigued at the thought of crispy, fall off the bone chicken in the slow cooker I just had to give it a try! WOW, I can’t wait to see how this works and let you know! A very fascinating and scrumptious looking recipe from Sabrina at Dinner Then Dessert.
This week’s other-than-chicken-or-beef recipes is smothered french onion pork chops. What a gorgeous dinner from Stephanie at The Cozy Cook!
I’m trying a new source for my pork. I’m on a quest for real tasting pork. Most of it is so ho-hum! This recipe should kick the taste up a notch or three!
Salmon cakes are a blast from my childhood past and I’ve made them for decades. Saying that, they were a bit boring. But these salmon cakes that I make frequently are so delicious and full of flavors! Yummy recipe from Natasha’s Kitchen!
Friday dinners are usually easy and fun! Bobby and I love to spend Friday nights watching a good movie or playing a rousing game of Scrabble or Bananagrams! I’ve made these baked Tacos before from The Cookie Rookie and they are great!
I think I’ll make them beef tacos this week!
I love the site Julia’s Album! I get the best recipes! I have frozen shrimp in the freezer and was looking for a pasta and shrimp dish and is it any wonder why I want to try this recipe? Oh, how delicious! Thanks, Julia!
Oh, such a company-worthy meal and so so easy! I’m so excited to give these roll-ups from April at Whisk It Real Gud! Beautiful meal! Gorgeous presentation!
TREAT OF THE WEEK
Let’s make these really wonderful, not too sweet Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Balls. They are no-bake and I have made two more batches since I first made them a couple weeks ago.
One (or two) after dinner or mid afternoon taste perfect!
You will love them!!!!
I’m also making shortbread cookie dough to pop in the freezer and later make Christmas cookies like the ones in the featured image. This year I’m flavoring my shortbread cookie dough with lemon zest! YUM!
See a recipe for THE BEST SCOTTISH SHORTBREADS HERE.
