Favorite Fall Foods

I love going to the apple orchard and exploring all the different varieties. From sweet to tart, soft to crunchy, red to green, apples are so delicious!
Apple Pie
I especially love putting those apples into apple pie! My grandma made the best apple pie. Perfectly sliced chunks, lots of cinnamon (but not too much), crispy crust. I'm planning on making it soon. Maybe I'll share the recipe (if your lucky).
Cinnamon Ice Cream
Goes perfectly with the apple pie. If you've never tried it, get your butt to a grocery store and buy some! The cinnamon flavor is the perfect complement to any rich fall dessert.
Butternut Squash Ravioli
This could possibly move up to #1 on the list. My family, friends, boyfriend are crazy for this stuff. Every year I host a fall dinner and this year, butternut squash ravioli is on the menu. It's best with a little drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of pine nuts. Yum!
Pumpkin Soup
I first tried Pumpkin soup on a trip to Australia and let me tell you, the market in Melbourne got it right. Complete with a dollop of sour cream on the top, this is a rich and creamy delight. I really can't eat too much of it, but one cup in the fall is a must.
I LOVE clam chowder. Probably because it reminds me of college and my time in Boston. Every fall my parents would visit me at BC and we would wander down to Faneuil Hall or to the famous Oyster house and have a huge bowl. It was always so fresh, with just the right consistency (not too watery, not too creamy). Just eating it reminds me of New England.
Macaroni and Cheese!
Unlike most, I'm not a huge mac and cheese lover. However, I make an exception ever fall and whip up a batch of spicy mac and cheese from scratch (not the box kind).
I always like it in sandwiches, but it's especially delicious with cranberries and gravy at Thanksgiving.
Creamy, mushy potatoes drizzled in rich gravy. Just the thought makes me hungry.
Chicken Pot Pie
This was the entree for my fall dinner last year. Total comfort food and so filling. I love the combination of textures and tastes in this dish.
Apple Cider
Smells good. Tastes good. What more could you ask for?
Sweet Potato Fries
A nice switch up from the usual. Sweet potato fries have a slightly sweet taste that is balanced with a pinch of salt. Delicious!

How can this list not have pumpkin pie?

I actually don't like pumpkin pie! Can you believe it? Something about the texture freaks me out! I usually have apple pie on Thanksgiving instead.

A lot of people have that reaction to jelly-like substances, I understand. Apple pie is nothing to frown at.

I'm loving this list!  Reminds me of Thanksgiving.  Though, honestly, I would, and I do, grub on all of this goodness anytime of the year... :P
