                                            A shelf in my library.                                                                    
Yesterday was the first good Fall day we have had after a long string of temps in the 80's and high humidity. I thought the guys at the shelter would appreciate a good Fall meal.  First I made some of these almond cakes.  You can find the recipe here: http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2012/06/cecilias-old-fashioned-butter-cake.html  Just add 1 tsp. of almond extract to the recipe and top with toasted slivered almonds.

Then I made a huge pot of chili.

This pot is so big it takes two people to carry it to the car.  You can find my chili recipe here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2010/12/l.html

I also made my honey jalapeno cornbread.  Four double recipes should have fed at least 80 of the men.  I think a bowl of flavorful chili with a good chunk of cornbread makes a great Fall meal.
