Tis the season for comfort food

Sure, it's still in the 80s here, but when I leave work to the tunes of the high school marching band practicing, it feels like fall. Maybe that's why I've been seeking out comfort food this week.

On the menu:
Baked Potato Soup: I was in the mood for a potato soup, and this one had very high ratings on MyRecipes.com. It turned out a little bland for my taste, but topping it with bacon and cheese helped add flavor :) (Warning: I'm pretty sure your cholesterol will go up just looking at this recipe.)

Paula Deen's Hurry Up Chicken Pot Pie: This was a good, simple meal that was quick to put together after work. In true Paula Deen fashion, it calls for you to melt a stick a butter and pour it over the top of the casserole. I definitely cut back on that, and I didn't add the hard boiled egg to the pot pie because...ick!

I'm really trying to get out of my dinner rut. Any recipes I should try?

Reuben sandwiches. Make a pot roast and then have french dip sandwiches with the leftovers. Breakfast for dinner.

Pork Loin with Crumb Crust:

Beef and Stout Pie, but instead of the crust I made biscuits:

You read more recipes on a daily basis than I do! I tried to think of things Justin might like.
