Busy Day of Cooking Ahead
One of the things I like about the more moderate temperatures of autumn is that I am inspired to spend more time in the kitchen.
In addition to the traditional family favorites, I enjoy trying some new recipes to add to the menu. This keeps mealtimes from becoming boring affairs, and I have the opportunity to stretch my culinary wings -- as clipped as they may be.
I'll be cooking chicken in the crock pot in preparation for making Trisha Yearwood's Chicken Pie recipe. This is a dish similar to chicken pot pie, minus the bottom crust and the vegetables.
I'm also going to be trying our own tinamarie 's Red Cabbage, Kale and Grilled Chicken recipe. This will actually be my introduction to eating kale, so I'm looking forward to giving it a try. Oh yes, the kale and the great photos tinamarie always supplies of her completed dishes!
Pumpkin bread is also planned. I'll see if I run out of energy before getting to this recipe, but can already almost smell it baking.
Do your cooking habits and menu change much as the seasons change?
