Right now, we are grilling the protein, or we are doing sandwiches and/or salads. I will cook tomorrow night. Iíll make cutlets of two chicken breasts, pan fry and add a caprese. I canít get enough caorese salad during the summer. I have a supply if fresh basil, soó.

For me real cooking begins in the fall.

I grill outdoors year round thanks to mild climate. I HATE cold weather..when we lived in areas with 4 seasons I always gained "winter weight" thanks to heavy winter cooking. I know I don't have to cook heavier meals in winter, but look at previous responses from other...that's what lends itself to cold weather.

Couldn't rep again, but I love pumpkin, can't believe I'd never heard of pumpkin chili before! Browsed a few recipes and it looks yummy, definitely on my list of new things to try, so thanks.

I cook pretty much the same stuff no matter what the season is. It just depends on weather I cook it indoors or outdoors.
My Weber grill is like a convection oven so if I want meat loaf, or a roasted chicken but don't want to heat the house I make it on my grill outside just like I would in my oven. Baking breads, cakes, cookie or pies I wait for cooler weather though.

Yes, Marsala beef stew sounds absolutely delicious!

If you have an outside outlet use a dutch oven like Le Creuset on an induction appliance.
They are not expensive... the induction cooktop, that is.
You can also buy a small metal plate to transfer heat to non-induction cookware and then it can double to keep casseroles warm at a buffet.

I've made pumpkin chili, and it's a great way to add vitamins and a nice color.

Are there any dishes you are looking forward to making when the weather turns cool?
Haven't thought much about cooler weather yet. We have really not had a particular hot summer. We did have 1 week that was in the mid 90s everyday but other than that, nights have been a bit warmer than usual but the rest has been pretty darn nice. Of course, I am sure we all like to do about the same in the winter or even fall. Yes, soups and stews. My so to, is split pea soup or bean soup. I don't really do stews as much as I did years ago but I do love to do chicken and noodles. Oh and I am more inclined to do casseroles or long cooking roasts.

You know that is interesting about using the oven again. We don't have ours on, in the summer more than a couple of times. Between the toaster oven, crock pot and air fryer we have no need for the oven. In fact even in the winter I use it rarely except for holiday baking.

I'm ready for stews, soups, and other warm you up comfort food. I am also ready to bake breads and cookies galore. We had a great summer, but the time has come for Autumn goodness.
