Fall Comfort Food

I was delighted this week to finally find a macaroni and cheese recipe that satisfied my cravings for pasta and cheese. I made it as an accompaniment to another yummy comfort food – Sweet Potato Shepard’s Pie. Add to that a serving (or two, or three…) of Fried Apples, and you have a perfect October Supper.

Each of these dishes were a hit with my two year old, too!

Grandma Holden’s Fried Apples
4-5 apples, cored but unpeeled
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
Melt butter in bottom of frying pan. Cut apples into 1/8th’s; add to Frying pan. Sprinkle sugars and cinnamon over top. cover and let cook about 15 minutes or until apples are tender.
Healthy Tips:
When I made the mac and cheese I used rice noodles, and my version of fried apples uses 1/4 c. maple syrup in place of the sugars.

    Sarah, rice noodles are awesome! the consistency is only slightly different than regular pasta, and it’s a little expensive, but I love it as a substitute. You must try it!

    I’ll have to try the rice noodles. I’m alergic to to wheat, so my friend just made me some with spelt noodles that was surprisingly very good.
