Fall Roasted Vegetable Recipe

roasted vegetables recipe

Nothing says fall to me like butternut squash. I know everyone swoons over pumpkin flavored everything but for me butternut squash far surpasses the flavor of pumpkin as a sign that fall has arrived. This fall roasted vegetable recipe is super easy and feeds a crowd so it is perfect for family get together. It is also great because you can pair this dish of roasted veggies with any kind of meat. We usually have it with pork tenderloin but recently had it with baked tilapia. Bonus: butternut squash is in season and only $0.99/lb at my produce market.

Fall Roasted Vegetable Recipe

  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 onion
  • olive oil
  • pepper
  • salt

Cut all the vegetables into bite size pieces. Mix together with enough olive oil to coat the vegetables and add salt and pepper to your liking. Roast in the oven @ 375º F for about 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Canning Recipe for Peach Salsa

Peach Salsa

For the last three summers, Cathy and I have jumped into the world of canning. We started off small, just doing applesauce and sliced peaches. Last year we experimented with peach salsa. It was fabulous! We have also canned pickles, peach jam, blueberry jam, apple butter, apple pie filling and apple jelly in the past. It is so delightful to have these goodies in the middle of winter!

Last weekend, I went to purchase the peaches for our peach salsa. I originally wanted to use the little orchard right down the road. However, we had terenchal rain on Saturday and they are closed Sunday. So, off to Carter’s Mountain I went. My intentions were to make it an adventure day for my boys and take them peach picking. Wouldn’t you know it, they both fell asleep in the car on the ride there! I opted to not wake them and went to check out the pre-picked fruit. I told one of the workers that I needed peaches for canning. She told me the best deal would be getting the bruised and very ripe peaches. Since I was canning that day, these peaches were perfect! I ended up getting a half bushel for $5.00!

Peach Salsa canning recipe with fresh diced peaches, tomatoes, red onions, red pepper, cilantro, jalapeno and lime juice.

Recipe for Peach Salsa

We used garlic, tomatoes and jalapenos from Cathy’s garden. I bought red bell pepper, cilantro and red onions for about $4.00. We ended up with 19 half pint jars of salsa and 5 half pints of freezer peach jam for $9.00! Plus we had enough sliced peaches left over for each of us to make a cobbler.

It’s around 40 degrees here in Tennessee today and it’s only the beginning of November! I’m thinking it’s going to be a cold winter for us which is something we are not really used to!

Ever just get that craving for something sweet late at night but you don’t want to spend the time making something (or eat so many calories late at night)? Me too! Some of you know that I love my Instapot, mostly for easy weeknight dinners, but as I have recently discovered it’s easy to make super awesome desserts in it too!

So naturally I had to try out some Instant Pot Baked Apples! It’s the easy and fast way to make baked apples, and man-oh-man are they tasty. The best part? It takes 8 minutes to make 6 of them.
