Ground beef chili with beans

Chili…because it’s feeling like fall…most places anyway right?  I’m going to just pretend it feels like fall here in South Texas.  Because it’s November, and I want to be in sweatpants and chili mode all weekend.  Like literally all weekend.  Don’t try and get me to get dressed and leave the house or do basically anything else.  There’s no reason we can’t make that happen  (excuse the 80 degree temps outside).

Green Chile with Roasted Pork

It’s green chile time!

This past weekend it finally felt like fall.  Like, FINALLY.  There are times that I just love living in South Texas (like January when it’s 75 degrees out and everyone else is buried under some named snowstorm…Jonas anyone??).  But when September hits, and it’s still annoyingly hot, I’m all take me back to the northeast!  They are boasting perfect fall temps almost every day and I am still dripping in sweat if I try and take a walk in the afternoon.  So in October, when fall finally does make its appearance here, I fully embrace it.  This past weekend was it.  The temp had finally dropped overnight so when you wake up in the  morning it’s in the 60’s, and it warms up throughout the day.  Heaven, I tell you.  So, Saturday morning we put on pants and long sleeves and headed outside.  It was glorious.
