Working on My Fitness: A Fresh Start
The Soundtrack . . . of My JOURNEY

A Change in Taste

There are signs of fall all around me these days:

Less daylight.

Orion in the sky.

Haven't spotted a robin in a couple of weeks.

Goldenrod blooming everywhere.

Mums and pumpkins.

School buses.

Acorns everywhere.

Frantic squirrels.

The need to wear shoes once in a while.

Although I try to ignore most of these things (and especially the shoe thing) and just pretend it's still summer (c'mon; play along), there's one thing that happens every year . . . that just makes the change of season inevitable.


I start to crave cold-weather-comfort-foods!

Yep.  I know that fall has truly arrived when I want to cook and eat foods I never even consider when the weather is warm.  This week, Carole has us talking about just this topic for Ten on Tuesday with Ten Foods We're Looking Forward to Eating Now That It's (almost) Fall:

  1. Butternut squash
  2. Lentils
  3. Grilled cheese
  4. Sweet potatoes
  5. Chili
  6. Chicken noodle soup
  7. Pot roast
  8. Apples
  9. Meatloaf
  10. Mashed potatoes

How about YOU?  What foods do you turn to when the seasons change?

Comfort food! That's what most of us feel the need for come fall. It's time to cozy up with fall favorites and enjoy the lovely fare coming from the gardens.


Yummm...we actually had turkey dinner on Sunday. It's beginning! I wonder what would happen if I served Wally and Doug lentils? :-)


Pot roast and mashed potatoes. Perfect Fall food!


Great list. I would add chili and a new favorite, posole!


I'm looking forward to soups and stews simmering in the fall, and a good grilled cheese is a perfect meal!


Every one of your foods sounds good to me!

Grilled cheese-yum and lentils are so versatile too.


Your list is diverse and I love it. Plus, I'm getting ideas for October. :-)


I can't believe I forgot grilled cheese!!


Didn't think of grilled cheese - I can eat them anytime of year - but you're right, a great fall choice!


I'm so with you about shoes and school buses! and comfort food. grilled cheese and tomato soup. yum!


Yum! Are you a grilled cheese traditionalist? While I love the classic, I also enjoying playing with the "rule" that any cheese + any jam/preserve + any bread will make a great grilled cheese.


Almost every one of the above except I never have any luck with butternut squash and since it is not a favorite of my husband's I will substitute grilled cheese (which definitely is!).
