I think that I have now canned the last of the tomatoes. We had cheese and mushroom stuffed pasta shells for supper last night with no tomato sauce. I was cleaning out my fridge -- assorted odds and ends of cheeses, a handful of mushrooms that didn't get used the other day. Add a fresh baguette, a green salad, and a glass of red wine and we had ourselves a feast.
That is really the problem with fall. You start wanting rich and substantial meals from the oven. That and the local fall produce--apples, pumpkins, squash--lend themselves way too easily to dessert applications.
