As the weather cools in the States, gardens are slowing down and many of us are shifting to meals that warm us up. Over on Popcorn Homestead, you’ll find one of my family’s go-to cool season meals: chorizo soup. Whip it up with fresh tomatoes and peppers from the garden and top it with the salty crunch of tortilla chips or baked tortillas and you’ll soon know why it’s a family favorite.
And if you’re pondering what to do with the green tomatoes still hanging on the vine as autumn approaches, may I suggest a batch of chow-chow? I shared a little bit of nostalgia as well as my recipe for this relish made from green tomatoes over on New Life on a Homestead recently. It’s an excellent addition to a hot dog bun, though not like anything you’d find in a store.
