Fall is really here now. The air is crisp and cool and it doesn’t warm up too much during the day – just enough to make it comfortable to be outside. I LOVE weather like this.
It makes me want hearty, filling foods. Things that “stick to your ribs” and make you want to go snuggle in front of a fire after you eat.
I’m planning some baking this week, too. Hoping to make homemade whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread and maybe some plain whole wheat bread. I’m also baking a cake for my ladies’ Bible study on Wednesday morning (thinking it’ll be the Brown Sugar Walnut cake)
Here’s what else I have planned to cook this week. A few items are familiar from previous weeks that I didn’t get to cook but am still in the mood to eat.
- Salmon Croquettes and Grits
- Sloppy Joes
- Vegetable Soup (I’m thinking a minestrone-ish type soup that I’ll toss in the crock pot)
- Crock Pot pork chops (something like this minus the rice because it gets mushy in the crock pot or this one which the family loves)
- Beef Stroganoff or Salisbury Steaks w/ mashed potatoes
