It’s Friday, and we are thinking about spicy lamb curry and creamy polenta. We are also thinking about farmers markets overflowing with pumpkins, squash, apples, dahlias, and other bounty of fall. What are you cooking this weekend?

Here are a few good ideas for cooking, eating, and staying warm from The Kitchn’s past week. Don’t forget to check in tomorrow for the top posts from the past week, and a roundup of all the new recipes, too.

• The Fall Cure is going great! If you finished up last week’s assignment, here’s this week’s: de-clutter your equipment and tools!

• Five ways to eat five things: Brown rice, artichokes, fresh ginger, flax seeds and bok choy. Speaking of artichokes, we talked about our love of jarred artichoke hearts too.

• A really interesting mid-century renovation. And here’s another light, bright remodel in San Francisco.

• Stay warm with meatballs, grilled cheese, braised squash, and hot tea.

• What’s always in your fridge?

• Harvest time for walnuts, chokecherries and wild mushrooms

• A great dinner party menu: a polenta bar. Can you think of other good toppings?

Have a happy weekend, and stay warm!
