Give Me Five Monday

Give Me Five fave fall time foods with or with out recipes.

1. I love cranberries & brussel sprouts this time of year. Canadian Thanksgiving was last weekend, after all.

2. Turkey soup. Especially if it's made with leftovers.

I love hot tea, of any sort, and this is when I start drinking it by the boxful, because I don't drink coffee anymore. I had to stop that when I realized how strung out Hunter was before it dawned on me that it the caffine goes through breastmilk.

4. Fresh home made apple sauce. I don't make it often, but when I do it's usually this time of year because I actually really enjoy it warm.

5. Soup. I know I already put a soup up here, but I so often start craving them this time of year it's difficult to know which one I've got on what day. I generally make mine from scratch, and usually use a base of onion, carrot, celery, peas, and whatever noodle/potato & meat is handy, sometimes I'll use chicken, sometime's I'll use ground beef...but during the colder months ground beef is my preference, I see chicken as being a warm month thing. I'll add whatever spices and other veggies I have about, but those are my main staple ingredients.

I don't think I've ever had turkey soup, but it sounds delicious.
