Butternut Coconut Pork Curry

Recipes posted a year ago:

Another Sunday just passed – this one happened to be my only day off for the week, and was accompanied by decent weather (as in not raining all day).  Since it was my only opportunity in the past six days (and likely the next six days as well) to get anything done outside, I knew that I needed to take advantage of every minute I could.  At the same time, we had Karen’s parents coming over for dinner – so I needed to put something together that I could get started in the morning and forget about until right before it was time to eat.  In other words, it was a perfect day for the slow cooker!

Chicken Pot “Pie” Soup

Recipes posted a year ago:

In the past we have enjoyed a great chicken pot pie recipe, but of course the word “pie” generally insinuates some type of crust which often contains wheat.  I suppose I could have made up my own crust from almond flour or another grain-free flour, but really lets be honest… I just like the filling.   This is delicious and smells so good!  You can use most any type of vegetables that you have on hand for this.  “Think outside the recipe.”

Winter Squash Chowder

Recipes posted a year ago:

One of the best things about this time of year is the huge selection of different winter squash that are available.  Acorn, butternut, delicata, pumpkin, and any number of heirloom varieties.  And while roasted and grilled are favorite ways to use these fall fruits as a side dish, we’ve added some dry-cured ham and made them into a hearty one-pot meal.  This is definitely one of my favorite new recipes, and I look forward to making again and again.

Tomatillo and Avocado Soup

Recipes posted a year ago:

We have had many hot days here in the Northwest lately (in the 90s WOOT!).  Summer came in September this year.  My Uncle Joe said it seems as if our seasons have shifted by three weeks.  I am tending to agree!  Sometimes it is hard to eat hot food on a really hot day, so this cold soup was perfect. I believe this recipe was adapted at some point from Sunset magazine, although modified.
