Fall has arrived, the leaves are starting to turn and the evening's are cooler. Our meal plans will turn to the warm and cozy foods of fall. I have been busy going through some of my favorite fall recipes and there are so many of them I can't wait to make again. I have a great One Pot Meal on the Sunday menu this week, our family just loves this recipe. Lets get busy and finish this meal plan.

All over our little village soups are simmering on the stove, breads are in the oven and the leaves are beginning to fall, it's fall! The weather is beautiful here and the gardens and farmers markets are filling to the brim with pumpkins and other fall squash. This is a fun time of the year for cooks, with so many different products to choose from. I am looking forward to you filling the table with wonderful food today, after all you'al are the greatest cooks on the planet!

I remember sitting at my Grandmothers long ranch table surrounded by family and enjoying a country breakfast. My Grandmother did not have a slow cooker, as a matter of fact she cooked on a wood stove, but the food she made was heavenly. Today I am making my Grandmothers Country Breakfast in the Slow Cooker and we are adding some southern Buttermilk Biscuits and White Pepper Gravy. This recipe is an easier way to make a Country Breakfast, but it sure is good and brings back lots of awesome memories.

I remember my Mother and her friends called a recipe like this a One Dish Dinner and today we call it a One Pot Meal. It is really great to have a go to recipe for a very busy day when there is no extra time to be spent in the kitchen. This One Pot Meal, uses fresh vegetables right out of the garden or the farmers market. A harvest in the pot, add some chicken, and this is a fabulous One Pot Meal in less than one hour. This is one of our new recipes from Garden to Table, and sure hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

I am in the process of doing my fall pantry inventory, this tells me what staples I will have on hand for the fall season. I love to keep a pantry inventory, it really makes meal planning easier. This week I am using up some fall garden vegetables with the best Garden Chili and one of our family Slow Cooker Roast for Sunday. I sure am glad that you stopped by to help me with this meal plan today so lets get started!

These Harvest Muffins have just a hint of a garden harvest and a delicious flavor with a crumble top. It is a great muffin to serve for breakfast, with a morning coffee break, or afternoon tea. The other evening my husband had one with his ice cream, what a great muffin for anytime of the day. This will be a perfect muffin to serve as an after school snack with the hidden veggies, the kids will never know. A bonus for these muffins, they can be frozen for up to three months.
