|Favorite Fall Foods|
Food... my favorite topic.
I may be a loser lately on fitness & exercise, but food? I always have an opinion & thoughts.
Today, the ladies hosting the Friday Five chose the topic of your favorite Fall Foods...
where do I start...
Maybe because we live next to an orchard that has a big apple festival, but I love apples especially in the fall. I am biased that apple pie is my favorite desert too. ... oh man, I'm craving a piece now. But I love apples just plain (I say plain, but plain is always with salt)... or with peanut butter on them... or baked with cinnamon on them. Oh man. I love a good apple.
I always say my body is made up of 90% carbs & stuffing doesn't let me down. Most people get excited about turkey during Thanksgiving, but even before I was a vegetarian, I was more excited about the stuffing. Bread broke up & baked with lots of spices & some veggies? Yes please. I just ran across a recipe this morning for a quinoa stuffing. That looked intriguing too.
This goes in with the Thanksgiving thing as well & this is a childhood favorite & memory. My grandmother used to make the WORLDS BEST DUMPLIN'S... not dumplings. Dumplin's ... when she passed away, they went with her. Her daughters have tried to duplicate them. No one can do it. I always said she left out an ingredient on purpose so we would all miss her cooking. Its hard to find dumplings without chicken in them... this is making me want to find a recipe where I can make them at home - chicken free.
|I never have soup & not think of the soup nazi|
I was going to put chili, but I'm all about anything warm & comforting on fall cold nights. This will be the same if we do a winter food topic. It's so filling too. I've been on a potato soup kick lately. Told you carbs were my best friend.
5. Pumpkin Pie
I had to go out on this one... as much as I love apple pie, I do love Pumpkin pie during the holidays. Load up some cool whip on top & I'm in heaven. I used to make a great one & haven't done it in awhile. I need to dig out the recipe for it & get all the ingredients... if I have nothing else next week for Thanksgiving, know I will have a piece of pumpkin pie. It's healthy after all - right? Pumpkin IS healthy...
