Autumn comes late to Texas. But it does arrive, while summer has to be dragged away kicking and screaming. Cooler mornings, less-stifling nights, and the breeze feels more like relief than the hot breath of hell. (Not kidding!) I can write sitting outside again (if the dang pollen would abate.) We don't have a lot of fall foliage like up north, but I have a beautiful maple tree in my front yard that always turns pretty colors.
Football, my favorite professional sport to watch, returns. Dinner is less grilling and more slow cooker meals. I can't wait to make chili again! I have my own bunch of favorite fall meals to cook. Soups and casseroles mostly. And breads and cakes and things I shouldn't be eating but will, even if it's just a small bite.
What are some of your favorite fall recipes? I'd love to get some new ones, so if you have time, please tell me in the comments below.
