Easy Fall Dinners with Ceci Carmichael

When I think of Fall, I think of indulging in rich and flavorful meals, sides, drinks and desserts. Something scrumptious with the essence of pumpkin or ginger, hearty beef stews or bowls full of tummy-warming soups.

But as the temperatures drop and the holidays approach, my already busy calendar begins filling up leaving me with little time to think about preparing dinner. I really try to plan my meals on the weekend for the coming week, but it just doesn’t happen every single weekend. Some weeks my planning comes up short. Plus it seems like I am running all over the place between work and after school activities. All of this cuts into our diner time!

One of my favorite Fall sides to go along with Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pies is my Roasted Brussel Sprouts. This is a quick and easy side dish that roasts in the oven right alongside the chicken pot pies. They go together perfectly!

Another easy dinner we also love is roasting up a big pan of chicken with carrots, potatoes, celery, and onion. Yum!

  1. Oh goodness it’s 8 am and I am starving for dinner now haha!! These look so good I think I’m going to make some pot pies and Brussel sprouts. I am always looking for new dinner ideas since we get stuck in a rut and esp when they are quick and easy!

  2. Love the comfort food! There is nothing better than having a stew or creamy chicken pot pie for dinner to make any day better!

  5. Gosh this post is making me hungry. Thanksgiving cant get here soon enough I love some of these comfort foods!

  6. I think planning meals is the best. I don’t do it nearly as much as I should. My husband and I end up getting pizza because we don’t buy items we need to cook a real meal. Thanks for these recipes — we will need to try them next week!

  7. I also find planning out my meals for the week makes it much easier. Of course, sometimes I forget to write down the recipes I selected and then find myself wondering why I bought a certain item. These recipes look so tasty, I’d love to try the roasted Brussel’s sprouts and pumpkin cake.

  8. Oh my goodness it all looks so good! Especially that stew! I’d love to try that with my family over the holidays!

  9. Yum! These look like great ideas! I am curious about those brussel sprouts! And totally saving room for the pumpkin cake.

  10. That chicken pot pie looks to die for. I would like to make that for the fam one day soon.

  11. I just wanted to climb into your blog and eat my way home. So many delicious and hearty meals.

  12. I think my favorite easy dish is the pan of chicken with whatever veggies I have in the fridge at the time, usually it’s potatoes, beets, carrots! But I totally want to add celery now!

  13. I’m always looking for easy, delicious meals to add to our dinner rotation. I love using Stovetop in different crockpot meals it always adds a certain “something.” I can’t wait to check out Ceci’s suggestions and recommendations!

  14. These are great! We’ve been trying to move towards a more healthy dinner schedule and I’ve been scouring Pinterest for easy yet healthy ideas. Thanks for the post!
