Favorite Fall Foods

I was listening to the news last night and the weather man was saying there's supposed to be a COLD front (aka a "cool front") coming through sometime this month. Unbelievable. Normally it's around 100 degrees. Give or take a few. So a cool front will sure be nice.

That got me thinking...

Fall is so close that it's not even funny. Summer is my favorite, because I love the heat. Love love love. BUT, Fall makes me really happy. I got married in the Fall and there is so much excitement during this time of year.

So in the spirit, I decided to show y'all some recipes that I plan on making this fall. Enjoy!

Banana Bread
1 cup butter, soft 
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup pecans, toasted
2 cups mashed bananas [or 5 bananas]
2 teaspoons vanilla

Baked Potato Soup
4 medium potatoes, baked and peeled
2 cans (28 ounces) low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
4 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
Dash of salt and pepper
1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
3 slices pork bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 tablespoons red onion chopped

Pot Roast
One 4-pound boneless Chuck roast, neatly tied
Salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
3 celery ribs, sliced
2 bay leaves
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
3-4 cups beef broth or stock
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons butter, softened
