Although it`s felt like fall most days here in the foothills of the Alberta Rocky Mountains for the past couple of weeks I am posting this on the first day of fall to welcome it in. Fall is my favourite season. The harvest brings the best foods and I love the colours, the warmth of spices called for in typical fall recipes and all the comfort foods this season has to offer. I want to share with you my favourites of the season.
Since I have been very sick for so long this time around and living in my RV since June 30th of last year I am just getting to the point of functioning normally in the past couple of weeks and haven’t been able to cook and bake in the capacity that I would like to. I found a new home and move in day is October 8th. I plan to post my own recipes as well now that I will have the mind space, energy and a normal functional kitchen. But for this post I wanted to share with you Against All Grains Fall Creations that I have made and enjoy thoroughly!
My Favourites of the Season
Apples, apple pie, apple sauce, apple crisp and apple cider. And these are seriously the best waffles ever! Waffles are my favourite breakfast and when I found this recipe with the apple topping I made it for a couple of month’s straight and I will always love it.
I was busy on Monday and Tuesday this week cooking and baking and I ended up making the World Famous Bread pg 226, Homemade Almond Milk pg 314, Butternut Squash Soup pg 94, and another batch of applesauce pg 208. All of these recipes you can find in Against All Grain Cookbook (the first one). This book is amazing for getting started in the kitchen when you first transition to paleo. It was and still is a life saver for me. I cook and bake from this cookbook three times a week at least.
The harvest moon which was on September 16th this year. I have to start getting my evening walks in earlier now.
Long walks in the fallen leaves and nothing is better than the smell of fall. I spent a beautiful warm sunny day at McLeod River in Marlboro last Friday. Check out my Instagram account to see more of my daily life.
Couldn’t help drive up the road a bit to see the mountains.
Captured this beauty after a rain.
