Tasty Tuesday: A Few of My Favorite Things

Finally the weather is turning cooler here in Kansas! After a very long and very hot summer it feels fantastic. I am finally starting to think it is time for cool weather food, comfort food. One nice thing about living in a four season part of the world is that the foods change along with the seasons. Here are a few of my favorite foods for this time of the year.

You can't go wrong with Chili, and I learned from the best! My mom's chili was always delicious. 

Bread Pudding is something I love to make in the fall...and so easy to make.

Chicken and Noodles...though I grew up with Rabbit and Noodles. Nice and yellow from mom's homemade egg noodles. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Sauerkraut and Sausage...yeah we had a little German influence in our family.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie. I am a purist here...it has to be the traditional recipe made with sweetened condensed milk!

Corn and Potato Chowder. Wonderful on those really cold nights.

Apple Crisp. I am not such a big Apple Pie fan...but crisps and cobblers I love!

So enjoy the change in weather, and don't forget the Apple Cider!
