fall favorites

The days are getting shorter; nights are getting cooler - time to think about cooler weather cooking again, and I'm looking for new inspiration.
What's the dish you look forward to cooking when fall comes around each year?

        Thanksgiving is my favorite meal, minus the turkey. This year I am going to just make a turkey breast for those that want some. I am going to start a new tradition with a pork roast to go with all of the fixin's.

    2. Butternut squash soup
      Beef/tongue/tendon stew
      Crockpot braised hunks of meat

      1. venison,duck,goose and smoked duck
        all the traditional rib stickers -daubes,legumes,winter squash

        1. Pots of beans, gumbo, braised meats, cabbage or cabbage relatives braised with bacon. Bacon.
