Satisfying Meals for Fall

We've had some good eating this week and I thought I'd share a few of my favorite meals with you. Fall is my favorite time of year and what better way to celebrate the harvest season then to cook tasty, beautiful food!

Oh these sweet potato biscuits, I loved them! I used > this recipe replacing the white flour with whole grain spelt flour, and chose sucanat for the sweetener. Aren't they so pretty?

The biscuits were perfect alongside turkey ala king, made with leftover free-range turkey, using a homemade gravy made with butter, whole grain spelt flour, chicken broth and plenty of organic cream.

Here is a pork shoulder steak from > Clancy's (a real butcher shop specializing in grass-fed, pasture raised meats, they also carry duck fat, chicken fat, and lard!), slowly roasted with onions, apples, raisin, sage and honey, inspired by a recipe in a well-loved cookbook of mine, > The Grassfed Gourmet.

Thai coconut curry is one of my favorite dishes, and my kids loved these little shrimp from > CoastalSeafoods. I had a lot of peppers that needed to be cooked soon so I sauteed them with onions before adding the broth and coconut milk.

What are your favorite dishes to warm your body and soul when the weather turns cool?

I am happy to have this post shared with > Food Renegade's Fight Back Fridays!
