Fall Fest Lunch Menu


I know everyone is eagerly awaiting Thanksgiving next week, but take a minute to check out this fall menu I whipped up. I had some friends over for lunch recently and served the following blog-inspired, fall-themed menu. It was perfect!

Fa La La Sandwiches from Food Snob St. Louis (a.k.a. me)

Autumn Chopped Salad adapted from Espresso and Cream

I left out the cranberries, and added honeycrisp apple instead. I also substituted parmesan cheese for the feta cheese. The dressing combo on this salad is fantastic. I used Trader Joes Sweet Poppyseed Dressing combined with homemade balsamic using this recipe from Oh She Glows.

Apple Chips from Oh She Glows

Love these. Will definitely make them again.

Sea Salt and Poppy Seed Crackers from Joy the Baker

I’ve made these before, and they are my favorite cracker recipe. Luckily, there were left overs.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Gingerbread adapted from Oh She Glows

I omitted the walnuts and added chocolate chips. Even Matt, the snobbiest of them all, declared it delicious and the best gingerbread he’s ever had.

My, oh my. So much tastiness going on here. I love each of these dishes alone, and combined they were epic.
