Olive Garden Soup

Fall is rolling in and to me that means a couple of things: crisp air, hoodies, hot chocolate, and one pot meals! Mom usually starts making her organic chili filled with dark red beans, gorgeous stewed tomatoes, seared steak or ground beef, tons of Vidalia  onions, and maybe fresh celery. Man that sounds savory! She also fixes some buttered- up Jiffy cornbread!  Whoo yeah! I know, how “southern” of me. Whatever! We eats down here in da south!

The above is (er… was) an excellent bowl of Minestrone soup from Olive Garden. I rarely get to go there but when I do I usually order their Soup, Salad and Bread sticks deal. Seems the price went up but no matter! I know I will be full after downing two bowls of hot and yummy soup, four soft bread sticks and a bowl of salad with a couple of salty, black olives. Full to the max! I just took a peek at their menu, too. They have Pumpkin Cheesecake! Oh, baby! Maybe it is time to make a visit!

Do you have any traditions for the fall? What do you like to eat during this season? I want to try my hand at some nabe this year but we shall see.
