I’ve finished up my prep for tomorrow- we’ll be feeding 19 people in my living room!  Just thought I would share a couple pics I’ve taken of some favorite fall foods, that I haven’t had time to blog about!

This is a huge favorite of mine: sweet potatoes, summer squash, zucchini, and some leftover chicken (added at the end).  I toss the veggies in some light olive oil and fresh rosemary (or dried basil, if I don’t have any), some garlic and onion powder, and bake until the veggies are getting soft.  I add in the leftover cooked chicken at the end, just to heat it up.  I have been known to eat the leftovers of this for breakfast. 🙂

(That’s shepherd’s pie you are seeing to the right side of my roasted veggies.  I can’t eat corn, but it’s a family favorite so I try to make it once in a great while… great excuse to make MY favorite, which is not so popular with the kids.) 😉

This is another fall favorite- especially on a lazy Sunday evening… Corn Free Nachos.  I make my own rice tortilla chips using Food for Life tortillas.  I rip them into pieces, rub a little light olive oil on my hands, and then rub the pieces and toss them on a cookie sheet.  Sometimes I just skip the oil (they don’t cook up quite as nicely).  When they are starting to very slightly brown on the edges, I pull them out, add some grated cheese, and some ground turkey (browned up with garlic/onion powder and pepper added).

Man, I just spent all day cooking and baking, but these pictures are making me hungry! 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!
