The Weather's Turned Colder

So today I've worn my sweater for over 5 hours.  We closed the warehouse door to keep the heat inside the office, and I think I may vacuum out my heater at home, so it's ready to kick on at 55 degrees!!

Yikes, here's Fall!! But that also means good news. Pot Roast, Apple Stuffed Pork Loin, Chili, and other hearty cold weather dishes!!

Luckily for me, I bought an elliptical machine yesterday on Amazon.  This should help get me moving so I can enjoy my favorite fall/winter foods!!

One of my newer favorite cold weather foods is Gumbo. While it may not get too cold down in NOLA, I actually like the heat and flavor of Chicken/Sausage Gumbo on a cool day!  Okay, getting hungry now.

Another thing I LOVE to make is anything with Apples!  Do a search for Stuffed Pork Loin with Apples and drool.  Here's a preview of some pictures I found on Google:

I Butterfly my loin, add the chosen stuffing, tie it up, and roast (i use a dutch oven).

Okay, enough already.  I've got to hit up Smallwood Harvest and buy me a box of Apples already.  

Did you know that the Honeycrisp Apple has now become one of the "Famous" Apples?  It's the "In" Apple to have, as it's a perfect a balance of sweet, juicy and firm!  Well when I tried them 5 years ago, I thought so too!!  So I love using them to make Apple Crisp, Apple Muffins, Apple Sauce, Apple Butter.  It's all good!!

Until then,
Enjoy the bounty of the Season!!
