Tomorrow is the solstice. I live in Japan where there is a very clear delineation between the season. Though they've been selling autumn goods (special beers, snacks, 'n' stuff) officially the summer stuff is put away tomorrow.   
 
Myself, I'm all about mushrooms. I'll be making all kinds of soups and sides with them.   
 
I also love squash, especially butternut and kabocha. A simple coconut curry with nice chunks is always good, or just microwave/bake it and eat as is as a snack.

Aside from that, I tend to eat/prepare heartier foods from the fall. I placed an order for tripe, heart, and sweetbreads this afternoon -- I love to cook and I adore offal. Over here they eat it skewered and grilled but I like mine prepared the old French and Italian ways.

For something as easy as curry I don't need recipes.   
 
Every few months I whip up a HUGE batch of masala and freeze it in half cup increments in Ziplock bags.

When I want a quick dinner/lunch to a fry pan I add whatever meat, most often chicken, or paneer to the pan then I take out one of those frozen packs of masala and add to it a can of coconut milk, a can of chopped tomatoes and whatever additional spices I want (including garlic or ginger). I add in my vegetables and cook it for 30 or 40 minutes.   
 
Super simple.   
 
When I need to cut down on carbs I'll often mash the now cooked squash to help thicken the sauce. It makes it heartier, gives it a more mouthfeel.

Do you have some more accurate measurements? How much chicken? I know that we shouldn't quantify everything, but I'm a big recipe guy and like to know what to do step-by-step because cooking can be stressful ngl. The more specificity, the better in my opinion.

For that? No. It's just a pinch of this and a pinch of that.

If you go over to my blog there are some curry recipes there with detailed info on how to prepare. In fact, one of my first posts was on Indian curry (I studied cooking in India for six months -- my Indian foods are amazing). Smiley 

The link is in my profile.
