Fall is here to STAY, everyone (until December, that is)! And your meal choices are definitely reflecting it.
Sticking with the cozy theme of September's favorites, there are lots of hearty pastas and roasts on October's list, but there was one classic casserole (with an upgrade!) that reigned supreme.
