I don’t know about the rest of you, but I wore a jacket to work this morning. And a scarf. And every night for the past few days, I’ve snuggled up on my couch with a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea. Now this is Fall! Fall weather brings a lot of things, but one of my favorites is comfort food: minestrone soup, pumpkin pie, pot roast. The possibilities are endless! And tonight, I’m making my first pot of chili of the season. I discovered my go-to chili recipe last year and it was requested on a weekly basis by my family until the weather warmed up.This recipe is great because it uses turkey instead of ground beef, two kinds of beans for fiber and the amazing flavor comes from an assortment of peppers, tomatoes and spices. Healthy and hearty! If you’d like to try it, you can find it here. If you make it, tweet me a picture and let me know how it turned out. Warning: this chili does have a slight kick to it. If you can’t take the heat, leave out one of the peppers.
But enough about my recipe book, I want to hear from you. What do you make when the weather gets cold? Do you use a slow-cooker? Where do you find your recipes? And the most important question, how do you keep your meals healthy, but still hearty and comforting? Let me know!
