Pumpkin Pie Dip
For people who love pumpkin pie but don't want the hassle of making it! Here is another nutrition dense food that you will love and it will love you back. Have all the luxury of a pumpkin pie without all the fuss. Use apple and pear slices to scoop up the dip or use graham crackers. I made my own pumpkin pie spice mix using freshly grated nutmeg, ground cloves, and ground allspice (I used my mortar and pestle so I could have some spice chunks still in it). Store-bought pumpkin pie spice is fine though.

Braised Cabbage

Braised Cabbage
This is an old family recipe that I remember my grandmother making in the fall using cabbage from the garden. We called it sweet-sour cabbage. My grandmother always used red cabbage but green cabbage would work fine too. This dish can be eaten warm but it is best when refrigerated overnight and eaten cold.
