Today is a good day. One, because I don’t work today, and two, because I’m watching Monday Night Football and eating this snack mix. I don’t wanna say anything to jinx it, buuuut the Chicago Bears are really doing well this year. I mean most of the games are a complete eyesore to watch, but somehow we just keep managing to pull a win from it. It’s honestly incredible. Even if we do lose tonight, I will be able to rest easier knowing I won’t starve to death in my sleep. I’m on my second bowl already and the game literally just started. No shame over here though.
I’m welcoming in fall with open arms as I cozy up with a bowl of soup and dream about all things apple and pumpkin. This year may look a little different than most, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t celebrate. Plus, most fall activities are outside. Apple picking, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, tailgating… we can still do these things, we just have to be safe about it. No way is fall going to be canceled in my book. Not if I have anything to say about it. One of my favorite things about fall, minus the fall activities, is warmer recipes. Whether that be warm in temperature or warm in spices, I’m all about it. It just feels homey to me. A sense of comfort. A sense of calming. Anyone else feel this way? It’s like the second the weather starts to turn, the first thing I want to do is put on fuzzy socks, turn on a Harry Potter movie, and make some kind of soup. I’m always trying new recipes out, but this Creamy Tortellini Soup with Chicken Sausage and Kale is definitely my go to.
