Fall Food

by Kay~Kacey on 10/13/2009

It’s that time of year. Autumn. Time to change out from lighter, cooler to food to cool weather food.


Last night I put on my first pot of chili of the season. Yum. The house smelled so great.

As the weather turns cold, I crave different comfort foods. (SuperGuy swears he doesn’t understand the whole comfort food thing, but I know he’s stressed when he heads for certain foods. So there’s the truth. Just don’t tell him I have him figured out!) Anyway, when the weather turns cold I want chili. Pot roast. Apple Pie. Fresh homemade bread. Homemade noodles. Chocolate. (okay, I want chocolate all year long, but I just thought I’d throw that in there.)

So what are you cool weather/cold weather comfort foods? Or what is your all year long comfort food? Confess to us all.

That’s an easy one – Chicken Curry, Bobotjie and Cottage Pie; all 3 being standard year round comfort foods. However winter conjurs up thoughts of hearty Oxtail accompanied by red wine – next to a roaring wood fire!

Chili is always good. So is a nice roast turkey breast and potatoes;)

Stringy roast beef, a big pot of spaghetti w/bolognese (sp), a roasting chicken, and Black Dog Restaurant’s apple crisp w/rum. MAJOR comfort food.

When it gets cold, I like either chicken noodle or beef vegetable soup.

Chili is awesome, but I have no venison to make it with. I may have to settle for beef this year. Besides venison chili, my favorite cold weather foods are…

Taco Soup:

Shrimp Diavolo:

The Shrimp Diavolo is especially good for clearing out the ol’ sinuses on a cold, rainy day. Try it, you’ll like it!

The Beige Meal (as my son called it): chicken fried steak, gravy, mashed potatoes, cauliflower and home made applesauce. (you can add a spiced crab apple for color, maybe a sprig of rosemary).

Great minds think alike. I just made our first big batch of chili over the weekend. Plus all the trimmings, crackers, fritos, hot dogs, shredded cheese, the works.

Besides chili we like, Mexican Taco Chicken Soup (recipe from, roast w/potatoes and carrots, hot spicy chicken wings, and beans and cornbread.

Beef & Guinness Stew. Pasta E Fagioli. Norwegian Meatballs. Meatloaf. Bread Pudding. OMG, the bread pudding. Sliced apples with butter rum caramel to dip in. Butter Rum Rice Krispie bars.

I’m making myself way too hungry for this early in the morning.
