31 October Dinner Ideas That Are Ideal for Sweater Weather
The leaves are changing color, the air is getting crisp and cans of pumpkin purée are stacked high at the supermarket. We’ve got all the fall feels right now, meaning we’re craving hearty dinners that warm us up—and are just the complement to a roaring fire. Read on for 31 October dinner ideas that are satisfying, nourishing and sweater-season appropriate. Think butternut squash risotto, balsamic roast chicken and more.
October 1: Pesto Quinoa Bowls with Roasted Veggies and Labneh
A dollop of seasoned labneh (or Greek yogurt) takes these healthy bowls from everyday to over the top.
October 8: Butternut Squash Carbonara
It’s creamy and dreamy without any butter or cream (though it is loaded with grated Parm). Squash is transformative like that.
October 16: Sausage, Corn and Poblano Chowder
It’s spicy, sweet, hearty and just so happens to keep really well in the freezer. Need we say more?
October 21: Balsamic Cranberry Roast Chicken
This skillet dinner is surprisingly hands-off; you don’t even have to brown the chicken on the stove before transferring it to the oven.
