As I look outside my window, I can see that the warm weather has definitely left us for a while! We had a gorgeous October and spending a few days in Portland where it was quite warm and really sunny (except for morning fog) really extended our summer!
It’s damp, grey and drizzly today and I don’t know about you but in my books that calls for a steaming bowl of soup for dinner! One of my favourites (barley lover that I am) is Mushroom Beef Barley soup. Don’t you think a couple of slices of delicious soda bread or warm from the oven, homemade biscuits would make a great addition? Me too!
If you are in the mood for a braise, click the link to a scrumptious recipe for Veal Shortribs; it’s what I’m making for our dinner tonight!
Or, if your tastes are leaning towards a great tasting, beautiful main course salad, why not try my Chicken or Turkey Salad with Pears? Start the meal with a bowl of Roasted Winter Squash Soup and you’ll have a really terrific fall/winter dinner or luncheon! I often make the salad when I am having guests over and everyone always really enjoys it and I especially like the compliments! Who wouldn’t?
Enjoy and happy cooking!
