It's Autumn Time, It's Autumn Time

...the leaves are turning brown...so it's nice to live in New England in the fall. I think we get a peek at fall before anyone else does. It is my most favorite of the seasons for many reasons. I was born in the fall, so I feel a special connection to the season. I love what everyone else loves, the crisp, cool air, the smell, the crunch crunch of the leaves under your feet as you walk, the colors, the way the sun looks at 4:00p.m., the fact that Halloween, my most favorite of holidays is around the corner, the wearing of jackets and cozy sweaters, and how can I forget the food? Apple cider, caramel apples, hot chocolate and warm drinks, the hot meals cooked in the oven after a summer hiatus, it's all just so comforting. I've been thinking about the first thing I will cook this fall, one of my favorite meals. Click here for the recipe. I love this because it is quick, easy, and an entire meal on one pan. It really says fall to me. I love it. Robert, however, will be eating ramen that night.

Hello, Food Twin! I whole-heartedly agree with everything you wrote. And I am so stoked to finally have this recipe! You made this for us one time, and like the pudding you made, Fred still talks about it all the time. I miss you.

Fall food is so yummy. I want to go bake pumpkin cookies now.

Jenni, so glad to see all your posts today. Thanks for all the chocolate talk. It's making healthy living (my buzz word for diet) that much harder. Better get out the twizzlers. Have a great day.

Hey Jenni! Just writing to say we loved this recipe, we just got done eating it tonight and I'm sure we will be making it again! Yummy! For the next time I make it... do you put the pears in w/ the veggies for the first 5 min. cook or do you put them in when the pork chops go in? The recipe confused me for some reason on that one. I put them in first and they were great, but I wondered what you did.

I put the pears in with everything all at once. So glad you liked it.
