The heat of summer is over, and the days and nights are cooling down. Soon, you’ll be snuggling up by the fire or watching the snow fall from the window. Until then, it’s best you take advantage of the warmer days and cooler nights with some great fall dishes. Here are some of the best dishes to enjoy this fall – and the entire family will love them.
Breakfast Fit For a King
Life doesn’t get any better than when you’re starting the day with delicious French Toast – unless of course that French toast is actually made from Pumpkin and Banana Bread. Yum! Other great breakfast or brunch delights for fall include quiche, bacon and sausages, pancakes and waffles, eggs benedict and hash browns.
Light Snacks That Are Hard to Beat
Whether you’re having friends over for a coffee, entertaining and in need of some Appetizers, or looking for an easy entrée before your mains, there are some great light snacks for Fall that are easy to make and great to enjoy. Cranberry Brie Bites are a favorite with delicious puff pastry surrounding cranberry and melted brie, hot cheese balls are always a hit, and you can’t go past pigs in a blanket for a simple solution that even the fussiest kids will love.
A Family Favorite: The Barbecue
It might not be summer but you can still enjoy the great outdoors and a BBQ is a fantastic way to do this. From whole pig roasts to the southern-style BBQ, complete with smoky chicken wings, there’s nothing you won’t enjoy when you host a grill party with your friends.
Desserts to Die For
The best thing about fall is that it’s no longer too hot to enjoy a hot dessert. Pies are the highlights, from Pumpkin, Apple, banana or bread pudding to sweet potato and pecan pie, macadamia tart to mini pastries. All your favorites are coming out for the cooler months – the biggest challenge is which ones to choose.
Don’t Do It All Yourself
In the fall, it’s nice to sit outside with friends while wearing warm sweaters and drinking hot drinks.
Whether you’re planning a family dinner or a party for all your friends, make sure you have plenty of food and drinks available to keep everyone full, and plenty of blankets handy to keep everyone cozy after the sun sets. You might even include an outdoor heater if you want them to stick around longer!
Sunny weather, cooler nights and fantastic friends and family are always a great mix and with the above tips, you can ensure everyone is having a great time.
