I always cook more soups in the winter, and I tend to be a "dump everything in the refrigerator" kind of cook. That is, using leftovers in my soups. We tend to be meat and vegie eaters instead of casseroles, so it's very easy. Chili soup, however, I always make the same way, and it's a winter staple. This month is apple and pear month, so we always have lots of them in October. Then on to citrus fruits. Our local "farmers markets" are NOT.... most fruits are imported, so they're a disappointment, but we do try to eat whatever is in season.

Definitely more oatmeal based meals and teas along with soups, stews and crockpot dinners. Summer is great for fruits and sweets but Fall and winter are great for warm healthy comfort foods :D

I tend to eat a lot of large salads or yogourt with fruit in the Summer. I don't cook very much. During Fall and Winter, I eat more cooked meals.

No matter how slow you go, you are STILL lapping everybody on the couch.

I try not to turn the oven on when the weather is hot. Once it is cool, I love to roast vegetables, make soup and bake bread.

October is great it is the season for my favorite foods: apples, cranberries and winter squashes. I am trying to get into pears, but I have a mental block. We also make more stews, chowders, soups and casseroles. The crockpot gets a workout come the fall.

I start wanting warm lunches as well as dinners instead of cold foods. I try and plan more warming things.

Im not a fan of soups, not enough substance, I do like thick chunky full stews though.

I cook seasonally, from my own garden, so right now there is lots of winter squash, greens, peppers, apples and jerusalem artichokes. I have these foods almost every day, and find that I am heading more for soups and less stir-fry's.
Over the past month, I have started eating a substantial hot breakfast, with grains, protein, drinks, veggies and fruit. EVERY morning. I haven't done this for several years, and I think it is really helping me stay on track.

Warm, healthful, stick-to-your-bones kind of meals! I like the way the house smells when you've been cooking a soup or tomato sauce all day! Add a loaf of fresh baked bread onto that and it's Heavenly!

I make more soups and roasted veggie dishes and try to keep focused on what's local and fresh (like sweet potatoes, winter squashes, various greens and spinach and lettuces, apples). Gee I'm getting hungry!

It depends where you live. Here October is the hottest time of the year. I'm feeling like eating lots of fruit. Almost a kilogram a day!

i'm pretty much the same. Except that I do cook more squash. I have an awesome butternut squash chili that I make as well as a stuffed poblano pepper using butternut squash.

I have squash available during the summer, but it sooo seems like a cold weather dish. Right up there with stews, chilis, soups, and roasts. Yum! almost makes it worth putting up with the cold weather.

I make chili in the wintertime..my DH thinks it's strictly a winter-time food. I like to make foods in the crock pot more too....beef stew comes to mind.
