I can tell it's Fall - I suddenly have the desire to cook. It comes on for a few weeks when the weather turns, before winter closes in and I remember how much more I like to eat out.
In honor of Fall (and in an attempt to not completely undo all the running I have been doing all week with one meal out) I decided to make some things we could freeze and eat later. I started with the Pioneer Woman's chili (linked here), and am moving on to the Sunday Night Stew. The chili turned out well - very thick and meaty. I really like chili with a lot of big tomato chunks in it, so I think next time I will add some extra tomatos.
