Breakfast/Brunch: 

 
*Serving ideas: add fruit salad and/or sliced tomatoes on the side. Salsa can make a great accompaniment for some of the egg dishes.

Appetizers/Starters:

Creamy Roasted Garlic and Butternut Squash Soup
Curried Butternut Squash and Coconut Soup
Sunshine Sweet Potato Soup 
Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
Superstuffed Deviled Eggs
Sizzling Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp a la Plancha
Smoky Roasted Red Pepper Dip

*Other easy additions include a relish tray with pickles, olives, and cut vegetables with guacamole or other dip. If you eat cheese, a cheese tray with fresh seasonal fruit (pomegranate, apples and pears–be sure to toss them in a little lemon juice to keep from browning, clementines, and oranges) and nuts would make a pretty presentation.

Side Dishes:

Pumpkin Casserole (can also be a dessert)
Twice-Baked Honey Nut Acorn Squash (can also be a dessert)

Main Courses:


*If you are short on space with each burner on the stove occupied and the oven full, why not prepare your protein in a crock pot? You can set it ahead of time and food takes minimal maintenance while it cooks so you can go do other things!
