Our Fall Meals 2020 (Photos and Recipe Links)

Fall Meal ideas

I hope this post will help you plan your holiday and winter meals.

You can see below lots of photos of what we’ve been eating this fall, with a list of the recipes represented in them. (If a corresponding recipe is not here, it means it was an experiment and it is still being fine tuned.) Since we usually have some version of a salmon salad each week, I’ve included photos of some of them below too.

One result from sheltering in place during the pandemic this year is that I’ve improved as a cook. I can now tackle with ease things that took a lot more concentration for me before. Also, James has learned how to make sourdough!

Note that above and the first couple photos below show our Thanksgiving meal.

You can also follow my food adventure and learning curve in real time on my new food-related Instagram account @whole30pescatarian. You might want to follow me there as well.

Also note that many of the plates and platters shown here I made myself.
