Fall is my favorite time of year. And here we are in early October, when unfortunately it still feels like summer! Our AC is on, the humidity is soaring, and temps are high. Meanwhile, the leaves are coming down, football is in full force, and I’m craving fall foods.
Oh, and did I mention I’m doing Whole30 again this month? That kind of puts a dent in that whole apple pie thing. But there’s still plenty of great foods that are “legal”. Like this great main dish.
Your kitchen will smell amazing while this is in the oven. The perfect fall main dish. Which, by the way, takes 5 minutes to prep. Yesssss.
