friday five: favorite fall foods

It's Friday! Whoo! Like every Friday, I am linking up with the DC Trifecta: Courtney at Eat Pray Run DCCynthia at You Signed up for What?, and Mar at Mar on the Run, as I do every Friday. This week's theme is "Favorite Fall Foods".


1. Caprese Farro Salad. This recipe comes courtesy of the Runner's World Cookbook. Here's the recipe online. We have always used quinoa instead of farro.

2. Panera Bread Tomato Soup and Mozzarella Tomato Panini. I like to go over on my lunch break and pick up this combo. Helps keep me warm in our freezing office, and it tastes delicious.

3. Cinnamon Rolls. YUM. The smell is great to wake up to, plus when it's fresh from the oven it's just so lovely. It's a great weekend treat, when you have the time to savor it with a glass of milk and some tea.

4. Pumpkin Pie. I pretty much only eat it on Thanksgiving, but I love pumpkin pie... and french apple. Nothing says fall like a big ole slice of pumpkin pie :)

5. Chicken Noodle Soup. Nothing like a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup to warm the soul. I eat a lot of soup in the fall/winter – especially when I'm feeling crummy. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but sounds good and easy enough to make... maybe. I'm not the cook in the family ;)


What are some of your favorite fall foods?

  1. Great chatting with you at #bibchat this week! :)

    You know, it's been a while since I've made overnight cinnamon rolls. I alternate between Alton Brown and Paula Deen's recipes, and they're so good (and pretty easy). Maybe I'll have to prep a batch for Sunday morning!

    I hear you on soup. I feel like all I want right now are hot and/or spicy foods. Winter is definitely edging in.

    1. Yes - hope to chat next week too :)

      YUM. I'll need to find an easy recipe for myself so I can enjoy some soon, too. I'll look into the ones you mentioned (though pretty easy might not be easy enough haha). All I want are foods that are heated now that it's colder out. Hello November (and soon December).

  7. Great list. I love paninis. Well, even just hot sandwiches in general. Just gives it a little extra when its warm and melty like that.

    1. I hope I can manage them... I'm not a great cook. Though I suppose those are more baking, which I'm ok at ;)
