Fall Dinner Ideas
What’s the number one meal of fall? Turkey dinner, of course. Turkey is easy to make and gives you enough to feed your hoard. Plus, it makes really great leftovers.
Fall usually comes with a plethora of squash. You can add baked acorn squash to your dinner’s menu as a delicious and cheap side dish.
Mashed potatoes is a great side dish that complements many entrees. This versatile dish can be served with gravy or can be mixed with herbs and garlic to create the taste you want at your dinner table.

Green Bean Casserole
Fall harvest is the perfect time for you to grab some vegetables and create a steaming hot dish. Pick up some green beans from a local farmer or grocery store, and cook up some green bean casserole.
This fall you can stuff your stomach with stuffing. This classic dish will bring to mind cheerful Thanksgiving dinners and over-filled bellies.
Chicken with Cranberry Glaze Sauce
Another main dish you can prepare for your fall table is chicken covered in a sweet cranberry glaze sauce. Although chicken tastes good year-round, the added cranberry flavor will make you think only of autumn.
Sometimes it can be hard to cook dinner for your family. If you know you’re going to have a busy day, throw a roast in the Crock-pot with a few of your favorite veggies, such as carrots and potatoes. This savory dish will be ready for you when you come home.
Corn is a staple food item during the fall months. You might have seen those stalks growing tall over the last few weeks. Now you can incorporate this food into your dinner with a creamy and delicious corn casserole.
Nothing is better on a chilly day than a warm bowl of chili. If you want a comforting taste, you can make it with a mild flavor. If hotter is better for you, add some of those spicy peppers that are sure to heat up your mouth.
