Fall seems to call for heartier flavors. I think each of the items on this menu pulled their own weight in the flavor category. They seemed to make a good meal as well.

Oven Barbecued Ribs
Cauliflower and Shells
Pureed Butternut Squash
Country Loaf from Birch Tree Bread Co.

Apple Crisp with toasted oats and pistachios

11 gathered for dinner this week (8 adults; 3 kids).

I think I bought around 8 lbs. of bone-in country style ribs. I made 1.5x the sauce. It worked well, with a bit of sauce leftover.

I used a whole box (16 oz.) of shells rather than the 12 oz. called for in the recipe. I wonder if I only had 12 oz. last time. 3 to 4 lunch portions worth are left which is OK with me.
