Fall Fare

This is my favorite time of year.

I love everything about fall, the cool crisp days, the abundance of vegetables and fruits at the markets, and cooking comfort food in my kitchen.

This is a simple pork stew that takes minutes to prepare and can simmer slowly filling the house with a wonderful aroma and making the pork so tender it melts in your mouth.


I used fresh herbs here as my garden is overflowing with them right now.
A slice of hearty whole grain bread and glass of wine is all you need to complete this meal.


Happy Fall!
