Happy Fall To All!

Happy Fall!
It's finally here!

 I can officially ramble on and on about all things pumpkin and faux fur!

Now that I have that out of my system today along with our front porch I'm sharing the wreath that I made, and my favorite chili recipe. Because nothing says fall like chili.

Here is my little fam in front of our door so ready for cooler weather! 

It isn't the first day of fall if that doesn't include chili! Like I said yesterday I have been cooking up a storm! I've shared a few chili recipes before but this one is slightly different in that it contains faux meat. But you cook it the same way.  To stay on the healthy side if you are using regular meat use turkey or really high quality ground beef. Here's the quick healthy recipe:

1 pound meat of choice  

1 small onion and a couple garlic cloves minced  

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 can diced tomatoes  

1 can tomato sauce  

1 cup broth

2 tbsp chili powder ( I use a good but because I like it spicy) 

1 1/2 tbsp garlic salt

3 tsp cumin

2tsp oragano  

Let the oil, onion, and garlic simmer for a couple minutes (until the onions are translucent) and then add your meat. After it browns add in everything else. I like to let it cook for up to two hours. Which is great because while that's cooking you can go to other things.  

Fast tip: if you like sour cream on chili opt for Greek yogurt instead for a healthier low cal choice. I add garlic salt and parsley to mine.  

I guess it's time to find a pumpkin patch to frolic in!
