What would you serve at a baptism luncheon with catered sandwiches? I'm looking for something more fall-like rather than the typical potato salad and cole slaw, especially if it's a chilly day. Thanks!

How about a warm german potato salad , kind of an Octoberfest dish. Chunky homemade applesauce is a favorite Fall dish of mine too. Baked beans, as well.

Sunshine Salad

Sunshine Salad

1 lb. coleslaw (purchased in produce dept.)
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped green onions

Place coleslaw and green onion in a large salad bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Other vegetables such as green pepper, radishes, red cabbage, water chestnuts, and carrots can be added to the coleslaw/onion mixture.

1 cup sunflower nuts/seeds
1 cup toasted sliced almonds
2 pkgs. beef Raman noodle soup noodles (crush noodles while still in the package - save soup base for dressing)

Place seeds, almonds, and crushed noodles in a quart jar and mix. Cover. Pour into salad just before serving to keep mixture crunchy.

Dressing:
2 pkgs. Raman noodle soup base
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. white vinegar
1 c. oil

Mix and refrigerate. Pour over salad just before serving. You can make this for an individual or a crowd. Combine only the ingredients for a single salad or a larger one. Once all ingredients are combined for a larger salad, it does not store well in the refrigerator. It gets soggy.

Baked apples or apple slices. There are many recipes online so you can find one that works with your situation.

Roasted sweet potato and butternut squash chunks

Soup

How about a creamy soup that can be served in mugs or disposable coffee cups such as butternut squash bisque or tomato soup? Broccoli cheddar soup is yummy but needs a spoon.

I love these ideas. I can be kinda picky about food but I'd love to see the following at any fall event; soup/chili; roasted vegetables; stuffing or dressing. or macaroni and cheese.

This broccoli salad is always a favorite. I use turkey bacon.

Butternut squash or pumpkin soup. Or maybe mashed root veggies. This is a favorite in my family: potatoes, sweet potatoes, rutabaga, parsnips (carrots and turnips, too, if you want) all mashed up with milk and butter and a little nutmeg.
