Ahh... Fall

Despite that the temperatures are still in the 70's here in Florida, and that palm tree leaves don't change into beautiful shades of gold, red and rust (but instead seem to always have a yellow green color that indicates that they are just barely alive), fall is upon us. So, while I don't think that pulling out my sweaters and hats and heading to a pumpkin patch for a hayride is in my future anytime soon, I am excited for the flavors of fall - the last little bit of a real fall I'm hanging onto down here.

This week we've tried to incorporate some warmer flavors and preparations, substituting our grill for the dutch oven and incorporating one of my favorite fall flavors - apple.

Sunday - Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, Crusty Bread with Pesto, Roasted Vegetables
Monday - Pork Loin with Smoky Pepper-Tomato Sauce
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Chicken Chili (from the freezer), Avocado, Bread
Wednesday - Pasta with Marinara Sauce, Meatballs, Salad
Thursday - Pork Chops with Apple, Roasted Vegetables
Friday - Steak with Potatoes and Broccoli
Saturday - X

Nick's parents are coming in this weekend, so we've left Saturday open. But I'm excited for this week's menu. Not to mention we are using up plenty of our freezer stash - making room for new!
