What better way to welcome Autumn than with creamy comfort food using seasonal squash. Okay, officially the calender doesn't roll into fall until tomorrow, but we are close enough. This is a delicious dive into dish that would be welcomed on any crisp autumnal evening.
Back to Monday and back to the meal plans. This week we are focusing on the smaller people, you know, kids! Sometimes, it is difficult to please adults and kids alike. This seems to be the story of my life. If I didn't have to cater to the smaller people of the house, I think about the freedom I would have. Ummm. But that's not every day reality in our house. So, for the most part I target week night meals to please the whole family. This week I have put together some dishes that are sure to please a variation of taste buds.
Is it too early for all things cinnamon spice? I would normally wait till October to break out the autumnal baking ingredients, but I just couldn't wait this time around. The other day amidst the summer sun, I got hold of some cinnamon spice and made some cookies to remind me of the months to come.
These particular cookies are crispy at the edges and soft and chewy through the centre. With a whole lot of cinnamon goodness to boot making them the perfect treat for fall.
Macaroni and cheese is probably my most cooked comfort food of all time. It's easy, comforting, delicious and liked by most people. These cute little mini Mac an Cheese cups cooked in ramekins are great for individual servings and great for kids. Time to start comfort cooking!
Stir frying is a great way to get dinner on the table quickly. This Chicken & Broccoli Noodle Stir Fry is one to file in favourites for the autumn. High on flavour and on the table in 30 minutes. The sauce is sweet enough for kids but packs enough of a punch for the bigger folks as well. A great mid week meal for the busy fall ahead.
