Saying goodbye to the sweet treats of Halloween may be hard, but we're making a mental move into Thanksgiving, the Fall harvest, and the holiday spirit. There's plenty we're obsessed with (and grateful for!) this November, from family-oriented books to a sweet pie revival. Click through to see what picks we're craving at the onset of the holiday season.
My son Nathan and I spent our summer Sundays eating our way through Kingfield Farmers Market. We did it last summer too and got in such a fun groove of eating together, visiting with friends, and stocking up on all of our favorite treats for the week.
It's worth noting that it was a much less expensive endeavor last year, when Nathan was around my height and was satisfied with a Chef Shack hot dog. Uh, not this year, not at 6'4" and counting, when he still ate a Chef Shack hot dog, but added their soft-shell crab sandwich, mini-donuts, and Arnie Palmer; Gai Gai Thai curry; Cafe Palmira iced coffee; Foxy Falafel curry falafel with a load of perfect pickles, extra hummus to go; Sun Street Bakery turnovers and sourdough loaf; and Bogart Loves maple-bacon donuts.
I scored plenty of bites, of course, and a good portion of it all we brought home to share with John...but I'm telling you, Sunday became a day for feasting.
So damn cool.
One of my favorites toward the end of the season was Gai Gai's Thai omelet served in a curry broth. On a chilly morning, perhaps after being out too late the night before, that crispy omelet in creamy coconut broth tasted spicy-sublime.

Despite its familiar ingredients, this is nothing like the canned or cafeteria stuff; instead, it's chock-full of chunks of real chicken breast, whole pieces of vegetables, al dente egg noodles, and a transparent (but powerful) chicken broth base. But the ingredient that absolutely makes this soup is the dill: it adds a lemony, vegetal flavor that complements the chicken in the best way possible. Get your soup on with the recipe.
We're all about Fall salads right now, and here's another creation by CheesePlease that we most certainly can get behind!
Do you have a go-to salad for when you are entertaining? My favorite go-to salad is always an arugula parmesan combination. This time I paired it with a nutty, salty cheese such as good quality parmesan reggiano. The addition of toasty walnuts pairs well with ripe bartlett pear slices.
