It’s another wonderful fall day. Yesterday was spent watching football, playing football and eating some wings with friends. I planned this menu with some savory fall meals. I love fall because the food can be cozier and a bit heavier. I enjoy all of the flavors of fall – apple, maple, cream, bacon. Yum!
Monday – Autumn Meat Loaf (recipe below)
Tuesday – Crockpot Pork Loin with Apples and Cinnamon
Wednesday – Chicken with Creamy Mushrooms (this recipe is from Real Simple)
Thursday – Beef Bourginonne Barefoot Contessa style!
Friday – dinner out with friends
Here is my awesome Autumn Meat Loaf recipe. My 6 year old actually cheered when I told him that this is what’s for dinner.
1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 box Stove Top cornbread stuffing mix
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 C. milk
1 C. shredded cheddar cheese
1 C. shredded apple
4 strips of bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix stuffing and the milk until moist. Add all the other ingredients except the bacon and mix until well combined. I use my hands to do this. Form mixture into a loaf or pack into a loaf pan. Lay bacon over the top and bake for 45 min. to an hour. Voila! Bon Appetit!
