The autumn air has made it’s way to OH-IO.
and when it gets chilly, all I wanna eat is chili. cheesy huh?
Speaking of oh-io, Ohio State put on quite a butt kicking (63-38) versus Nebraska on Saturday. Life is good for this buckeye fan (for now).
Darrin and I hosted our first party at our new house, this past weekend. Kind of a housewarming party, kinda football, kinda autumn, kinda birthday… basically a party of all sorts. 😉 Yes, you saw that right, birthday. I turned twenty-seven on October 3rd. yayyyy.
Apparently our friends thought it was a (bring a gift) housewarming party. We received tons of gifts and wine… am I complaining? Absolutely not.
Look at all of those bottles to drink. 🙂
So guess what the star dish of the party was… you guessed it, chili. Because it’s chilly… get it?
Darrin’s dad made white chicken chili. It got the most compliments.
Darrin made traditional beef/bean chili.
I wanted to make a seasonal, vegetarian chili… so sweet potato, black bean chili it was! I LOVE sweet potatoes!
Recipe adapted from Joanne at Eats Well With Others.
I loved it. Not processed… just whole, fresh ingredients.
Hell yes for leftovers all week.
Have a wonderful October week.
Oh, and cheer on those Buckeyes to a 7-0 record versus Indiana this coming weekend!
