The best thing about fall is the change in dinners… Soup, roast, chili… So good
I denied my fiance his lil smokies last night, but made a dinner he loves just as much.
Mmm chili. Makes your tummy happy.
I rock it old school and use dried beans. Then I’m all new wave and sub in ground turkey for the ground beef.
Because I’m healthy like that? No. Because ground turkey is cheaper and the smell of ground beef cooking is kinda gross. I only use beef when I’m craving it (I assume that means I need it. Just like how when I crave diet coke, it’s because my body NEEDS it.)
Plus cornbread. With agave this time, which was a first. Totally worked, and added some nice moisture to the bread. The fiance adores cornbread. I’ve seen him and baby brother eat an entire pan.
This, btw, is what it looks like when you let a boy set the table for dinner
The fiance likes colors.
Had some of the wonderful mail pie for dessert
And we chopped up this baby for snacks all week
It’s pouring down rain this morning. Pouring as in I opened the black door a crack and now the rug is SOAKED.
Clearly, this weather called for oats.
Oats, flax, pumpkin butter, walnuts. Amazing.
Now I need to go see what trash I can find to watch on demand bake to put off packing start packing for our move. Ugh.
Do you like rain? This is my third year in Portland and I’m just barely at the point where it doesn’t make me want to hurt myself. Can you tell I grew up in a desert?
