What Been Cooking The First Week of Fall?

As I look outside my window, I can see that the warm weather has definitely left us for a while!  We had a gorgeous October and spending a few days in Portland where it was quite warm and really sunny (except for morning fog) really extended our summer!

_DSC1440 resize stock partsIt’s damp, grey and drizzly today and I don’t know about you but in my books that calls for a steaming bowl of soup for dinner!  One of my favourites (barley lover that I am) is Mushroom Beef Barley soup.  Don’t you think a couple of slices of delicious soda bread or warm from the oven, homemade biscuits would make a great addition?  Me too!

If you are in the mood for a braise, click the link to a scrumptious recipe for  Veal Shortribs; it’s what I’m making for our dinner tonight!

Or, if your tastes are leaning towards a great tasting, beautiful main course salad, why not try my Chicken or Turkey Salad with Pears?  Start the meal with a  bowl of Roasted Winter Squash Soup and you’ll have a really terrific fall/winter dinner or luncheon!  I often make the salad when I am having guests over and everyone always really enjoys it and I especially like the compliments!  Who wouldn’t?

Enjoy and happy cooking!
