Fall Food Festival

This month's "Cooking Light" has a ton of amazing recipes. So good I basically planned my weekend around them. On Saturday night Jay and Erika came over for dinner and brought mini quiches and brie cranberry phyllos. The main course was coconut crab and shrimp salad with spicy pita wedges. We finished off with their dessert contribution of turtle cheesecake.
For brunch the next day it was apple oatmeal pancakes with honey butter (not a Cooking Light recipe). They were the best pancakes I have ever eaten in my life. No exaggeration. The recipe is from a book a friend bought me and I can post it if you are interested. The batter made alot so I cooked them all and we'll eat them the rest of the week.
Dinner was golden potato-leek soup with cheddar crisps (I love leeks), autumn apple pear and cheddar salad with pecans and provencal herb-marinated roasted chicken (prepped in the morning). Total heaven. I love being able to cook for people again. I have leek soup in the freezer, shrimp/crab salad for lunch and roast chicken with more apple/pear salad for dinner. Yay me!
