Aaaah, Fall. It starts to get chilly outside, the trees started dropping their leaves and it is time to start making comfort food again.
Who am I kidding? I make lasagna in the middle of summer just because it tastes so darn good. Fall is fun because its fall. The seasons are changing and it does seem to make more sense to eat meals with a little more.. shall we say.. HEFT to them.
As a cooking ambassador for Allrecipes.com, I was thrilled to take part in the Johnsonville Sausage and Ore-Ida Potatoes assignments for this month.
First up.. .Johnsonville Sausage with bowties and pesto cream. This was absolutely delicious. With fresh chopped tomatoes and creamy basil with parmesan, the family was (don't mind the pun here..) 'wolfing' it down. Seriously, my son told me later this was a new favorite and I had to promise to make it again. Recipe courtesy of Johnsonville and on Allrecipes:
Ok, who doesn't love french fries? Who doesn't love potatoes, period? Working on the Ore-Ida recipes is a no brainer for me. I could eat these without any of the fancy pretense. But, they look pretty cool next to the organic dog in a bun..
Thanks to #jvillekitchens and #allstarsjville.
October has been delicious so far.. and more to come!!
