A Sorry Attempt

I’m not going to beat around the bush here, people. This week has been a little nutso. A busy Monday at work recovering from a week-long conference in Dallas (pics and details soon!), a concert Tuesday, and a Wednesday full of packing (again!), laundry, and the beginnings of a nasty cold have all left me without a lick of time to write. I even have a backlog of good recipes to share, but that didn’t help either.

But because I am a creature of habit, in most areas of my life, I will still leave you with a Friday post, or a sorry attempt at one at least. I’m going to do something I don’t do much – I’m going to highlight past posts in an effort to get you all excited about Fall.

Let’s start with the chicken pot pie. I mean, it’s not like it was long ago that I posted it, but still. It’s not a recipe to be forgotten, that’s for sure. I’d kill a kitten for a piece of that pie right about now. Ok, that’s harsh… a rabbit?

You know what I wanted to eat in Texas but totally forgot to eat? Brisket. Who goes to Texas without eating brisket? Apparently, I do…. But this one was pretty good, if I remember correctly, so maybe I’ll whip that up again, or another version of it.

Anybody have a bunch of apples? I’d suggest putting them in a pie if you do. And since I’m sure cranberries are starting to make an appearance, this cranberry-apple pie is a good idea. Me? I’d like to make an apple hand-pie soon, so if you know of a good recipe, please share.

Totally random comment here that isn’t necessarily fall-related: I found two more of these blue cheese & scallion biscuits in my freezer on Monday, and they were divine alongside a soup I recently made. These would be tasty any day of the year, any time of the day.

Also, where was this caramel recipe when I needed it last weekend?! Damnit, I had a fool-proof recipe on my own blog, and I forgot about it. How do you forget a recipe with rum in it? Better yet, how is it that I haven’t made this bread pudding again?

I’ve been thinking about french fries since Tuesday. We went to this awesome bar up in Andersonville for pre-concert shenanigans and their frites were outta this world. I baked these frites when my parents were here last year, and they’d be mighty tasty with an extra-garlicy aioli.

Alright folks, that’s all the time I have for now! Might I also add that I did make a page a few days ago of some fall favorites? If this isn’t wetting your whistle, check those out too!

Any fall recipes you’d like to share? I’m all ears (well, sorta, they do feel a bit clogged…).
