This is my least favorite time of year. Summer is over, technically. Mike is back in school and football season has started. However, the 80 degree weather we have been having says, “Hey, guys I’m still here!” Oh, that was summer shouting by the way.
I went shopping with my mom last weekend and fall clothes were everywhere! On one hand, I was super excited for the return of layers and covered up jiggly arm fat. My own arm fat of course. On the other hand, I was kind of pissed. All these cute clothes are out now, when I am still sweating my butt off every single day. But, when the season of fall actually begins, all these cool clothes will be gone. Ugh!
It is a lose-lose, people!
I cannot justify purchasing a whole new fall wardrobe, let alone a single scarf when the rainstorms that are supposed to cool off the Midwest are actually just making it hotter. Talk about a delayed summer. I guess I will try and have restraint and wait until at least the end of September to binge shop.
Oh man, and don’t even get me started about the pumpkin people. Should we all just put our Christmas trees up now too? Ok, sorry, that was a little too grouchy. I am just so conflicted.
It is still summer!!! Or is it?
This meal is the perfect dish for any time of year. It doesn’t discriminate. Plus the fact that it is all in one pot will make your seasonally confused life so much easier. Hopefully.
