I’m delighted to be hostessing again with one of my very favorites: apples! As a NY’er from birth, apples are clearly near and dear to my heart. It’s been hard to adjust to VA apples, but hey, a gal’s gotta do what a gal’s got to do!
There has been little baking at Chez Harris as one of our kitties was in the hospital and I got in a minor car accident. Happily, all is well on all fronts, even if we are a bit dazed and confused (and lighter in the wallet). And it helps us remember what really matters. But meals will be simple to promote the return of sanity
My garden is alive and well due to the mild weather, and I’ve even been getting quite a few visitors to the butterfly bush.
Also, PLEASE sign up to host! yes, you.
So onwards to the food:
Grilled peppers and rubbed chicken
Sauteed kale and Kalamata olives
Turkey and celery in chestnut sauce
Veggies in a sunflower curry sauce
From my garden:
Wendy of Celiacs in the House teases us with the promise of a GF apple cake. That must be one of my all time favorites! She’s trying to get back to planning, since her hubby is back home and she’s got hungry teens to feed.
Heather of Celiac Family has puposas and avocado salsa on the line up. YUM!!! She also had some nice posts up about Halloween, so check those out.
Kim has been having a hard week, so let’s all send a collective hug in her direction. She’s got pumpkin baked ziti on the menu, which sounds delish.
Debbie joins us from Green V neck and she’s got Singapore noodles on the menu. I’m intrigued. She also has a few birthday celebrations (her twins turning 16!) What a milestone!
Elizabeth of A modern gal shares her menu. She, too, is a fan of Honeycrisp. She’s got a few crockpot dishes and chili in the lineup that sound perfect for the chilly weather.
Jo ann joins us for a grain free week with some of recipes from Elana’s new cookbook. Yum! She’s also got chili on the menu and grain free pizza.
Scrumptious of In my box has a bean heavy week planned. I’d never heard of 5 spices, 50 dishes, but it sounds like a great book and the chocolate pumpkin loaf sounds delish!
Esther of Lilac Kitchen has some lovely pictures of beetroot and plans to go scrumping for apples. Esther was kind enough to elaborate on scrumping–essentially grabbing apples on abandoned land, which sure makes more sense to me than having them go to waste!
What a great lineup of menus! Thanks all for participating, and have a great week.
