Fall is my favourite season. I LOVE the cooler weather and the fall colours.
I'll let these pictures of our weekend hike speak for themselves. Could it be any more beautiful?!
Another one of my favourite things about fall is that it is cold enough to justify making soups and stews. Which I love.
I have an amazing cookbook called "Simply in Season", which has been a go-to for me when it comes to recipes. It's great because it has it's recipes laid out by seasonal fruits and veggies and herbs, so it's easy to find recipes for our Saturday market purchases.
One soup we made this weekend from this cookbook was the butternut bisque (a creamy butternut squash soup). We ate it with some delicious City Café Bakery bread. It was yummy!
We've also made the vegetarian chili recipe twice this month, altering the veggies and beans each time to mix it up. Scrumptious! Another recipe we enjoyed was the stuffed acorn squash using turkey sausage. It was also quite delicious, and very filling! I recommend this cookbook to everyone... I have enjoyed so many of it's great recipes. Let me know if you would like more suggestions :)

Another recipe, which I found online here, was a beef stew. This recipe was a-mazing. Although we altered it by letting it simmer for a full 2 hours to make the beef even more tender! It was so good I started eating it before I could take a picture...
It has been yummy! I would love to hear about any of your favourite fall soups and stews!
