The weather has officially started to cool down here in the desert to a sweet 90 degrees. To some that may sound facetious, but I assure you - this is not a joke to us Phoenicians. A steady forecast in the double digits is a beautiful thing; a sign that Fall is around the corner. Soon our days will be spent enjoying the gorgeous outdoors, updating our Fantasy Football rosters, tailgating (Go Devils!) & indulging in lots of pumpkin-infused foods.
Though I'm aware we have a good month of summer left, the recent weather has kicked me into Fall nesting a little early. That and the viral news of the beloved Pumpkin Spiced Latte launching early (August 25th!). With that, I'd like to thank Starbuck's for officially inviting the rest of us to get a head start on Fall, starting in the kitchen & our coffee cups!
I think we could all agree Fall is a season for the senses. So, why not start there? If you're ready to kiss summer good-bye, start with this lean & hearty slow-cook chili recipe. :)
