Baby, it’s getting cool outside. What’s for dinner?

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

Normally, you might find us anywhere around the community with a camera and note pad, asking simple questions and looking for thoughtful answers. During this coronavirus pandemic, we are practicing social distancing and turned to social media to ask readers and followers: “What’s your favorite go-to meal that’s best suited for fall weather?”

Kimberly Harper, Bluffton: “Roasted potatoes and carrots with mushroom Bourgogne. It’s vegan – I’m a personal chef, and I like to take hearty comfort foods and make them plant based.”













Bridgette Frazier, Bluffton: “Fish and grits. It’s warm, comforting and iconic in Gullah culture. It’s something that could be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner.”












Kristin Brown Warren, Hilton Head Island: “Pumpkin Bisque. We have it every year at Thanksgiving, and I make extra to freeze so it can be easily enjoyed through Christmas.”












Tracy Owens, Hilton Head Island: “Comfort food like vegan meatloaf and roasted root vegetables. I think I finally perfected it after trying and giving up countless times.”












Heather Malia Rath, Hilton Head Island: “Green Pork Chili, featuring Hatch green chiles from New Mexico and Colorado.”
