10 Fall Dishes We Cant Wait For

September 29, 2009

In Seattle, now that fall is here, it means it starts raining. The days grow increasingly darker and the clouds rarely take a break from hanging out above the city. As a native, of course I'm sad to see the sun go for months on end, but honestly there is a big side of me that is excited to spend all evening roasting winter vegetables and drinking red wine, while a game is on in the other room. The wind and cold rain whipping leaves from the trees forces me to stay inside and convince me that it's okay to not do anything, but cook comfort food, feed it to my favorite people and not feel guilty about staying in my sweats all day long.

Cheers to Autumn!

I'm in New England and as we lose sunlight and the days get colder, I start to think about heartier recipes including soups and stews. I'll miss the casual days of summer grilled meals but love the way the kitchen draws me in the autumn.

Hi Nancy,

I hear what you are saying, fall is bittersweet in that way. Do you have a favorite soup or stew? I'm a big fan of Italian wedding soup.
