There’s nothing quite like getting home from a week away and being handed ready-homemade meals. That was my “welcome home” blessing from my girls this weekend. After being with my parents for eight days while my dad has been in the hospital (and now in rehab), I came home on Friday. My body, heart and emotions were spent, but I was so thankful I could be there to help. It’s a joy, and the Lord gave strength each step of the way.
Coming home was God’s timing, which made it especially sweet. Whitney was in Tennessee visiting her sister for 24 hours, so we all got to be together (another blessing!). Then before we parted, they handed me containers of food that they had prepared for us, to lighten my load! Supper/lunch meals consisting of a chicken casserole, salad, homemade bread, and chili. Then for breakfast, Pumpkin Banana Coffee Cake and bananas. I cried. How thoughtful. How appreciated! It truly touched my heart.
Tomorrow is the first day of fall and aren’t we all thinking about comforting casseroles, warm soups, and pumpkin everything? I thought I’d gather together some of my favorites in those categories and highlight them all in one post for you today! My recipe index here on my blog could be overwhelming, so maybe this list of a few favorites will help your autumn to be delicious!
If you’ll be hosting any fall event, having guests over, or cooking supper for your own family and want to try something new and delicious, here’s a great list to pull from! These are some of my favorite fall foods that are tried and true!
If you need suggestions for other categories – salad, easy bread, breakfast, etc., just leave a comment. I’ll be happy to help you!
I love muffins. Okay, I love any kind of bread, but muffins are just magical, are they not? You can eat them for breakfast, which is like having cake first thing in the morning! What’s not to love about that?!
I have several Blueberry muffin recipes in my recipe index, but I’m adding another because these were just too good not to share with you! I have a love for all the recipes from King Arthur. They know how to do bread (n and everything other baked thing)!! I found this recipe for Blueberry Muffins while looking at their Instagram account and I knew I had to give them a try. If you love crispy edges, moist, fluffy insides and a full blueberry flavor, you’re gonna love these, too!
