Chili and Other Fallish Things

Posted on

So, I made chili this week. Chili falls under my category of “winter foods” which means I usually only make them once October gets here or cold weather. Whatever happens first. This frustrates Jeff. He’ll ask for chicken and dumplings, which is in my winter foods category, during the summer and I’ll tell him it’s too hot outside for chicken and dumplings. Let’s just say that this concept escapes Jeff. So he’s been so happy now that October’s arrived. Beef stew, chili and cornbread, chicken and dumplings, turkey and stuffing, beef bourguignon, chicken soup, roast, and so on–I seriously love cooking during the fall/winter months. As soon as the weather starts to turn, I buy pumpkin spice candles. Yesterday, I finally bought a pumpkin to set outside on the doorstep. I just love this time of year. I do need to think of new winter/fall desserts to make this year. I’m looking for suggestions, so if you’ve got a great recipe, please share it here. For that matter, if you have a special non-dessert winterish recipe, I’d love that too!

So tell me, what are your favorite foods during this season??

  1. Shepard’s Pie is one of my favorites. Nice and hardy for the cold.

  2. You’re making me hungry for chili! I just fixed my favorite “cool” weather dinner – pasta jambalaya. So glad we found each other’s blogs. I’ll link to yours too!

  3. I like chili for when it gets cold out. Doesn’t happen much out here in the desert like it did when I lived in Minnesota . . . but I still enjoy some chili when it gets below 50 degrees. (LOL).

  4. I’m with your hubby on the chicken-n-dumplin’s because as a Southern girl it never really gets too ‘cold’ where I’m from and if I had to wait until I felt the ‘brrr’ to roll out some thin dumplins like my father taught me to do…I’d never get to eat the things.

    Fabulous post. I look forward to reading some of your other posts!
