New Fall Recipes You Should Try this Year

Fall is a wonderful time of year, full of beautiful colors and pleasant aromas. Make your house smell even better by trying out some of these new fall recipes.

  • Chili Colorado. This is a traditional Mexican dish made from beef or pork and stewed in a red chili sauce. The “colorado” part refers to the color, not the state.
  • Apple Cider Doughnuts. Crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, these delicious doughnuts will keep you coming back from more. They get their flavor from apple butter.
  • Salt and Vinegar Potatoes. Cook sliced baby potatoes in vinegar to give them a rich flavor throughout.
  • Potato Leak Soup. Warm up this fall with this rich, creamy soup. Top it with toasted nuts for a truly autumn taste.
  • Chocolate Bread Pudding. Use day-old chocolate bread to create this rich, warm, decadent dessert.
  • Cast Iron Roast Chicken. Heat your cast iron skillet in the oven before you put the chicken in it to ensure a crisp, golden skin all the way around.
  • Pumpkin Cake. Top this moist cake with a creamy maple-flavored cream cheese frosting for a dessert that everyone will love.

Ford and Virginia Tech Team Up for Driverless Technology

The future of autonomous and driverless vehicles is just around the corner. Automakers around the world are working on this technology. Ford and Virginia Tech have teamed up to study a unique aspect of self-driving cars—how people react to them.

When you reach an intersection with people waiting on the corner, you likely communicate with them through hand waves, head nods, or other gestures to show them your intentions. With a driverless vehicle, that communication is lost.

With the research Ford and Virginia Tech are doing, they have developed a series of light signals that can be used to show pedestrians what an autonomous vehicle is going to do next. To put these lights to the test, they equipped a Ford Transit with a light bar on the windshield and then created a “seat suit” to conceal the driver and make it look like a driverless vehicle.

You can watch this video to see how it works.

John Shutko, Ford’s human factors technical specialist, said, “We need to solve for the challenges presented by not having a human driver, so designing a way to replace the head nod or hand wave is fundamental to ensuring safe and efficient operation of self-driving vehicles in our communities.”

What would you think if you saw a driverless vehicle? Here at Shults Ford of Harmarville, we are excited to see where this incredible technology goes next.
