Is it crazy that I live in Texas and I want Ohio weather comfort food and outdoor attire? And long to sip coffee in front of a bonfire? And feel crunchy leaves under my tennis shoes? And take long drives to my in-laws country home oooo-ing and ahhh-ing over all the colorful leaves still on the trees? Sigh . . .
Old habits die hard.
I made chili today. Just like I made it in Ohio. It's 90* and I made chili. I love that it is still 90* here. I love that I can still wear shorts a tank top and flip-flops. Hey, I didn't say it was pretty, I just said I was wearing 'em.
But I miss my chili. And potato soup. And my sweatshirts. I know the weather will get nippy here in Texas eventually. I don't want it to come too soon. But I can't wait on it before I break out all the yummy cool weather recipes.
I can't believe I miss Ohio.
Counting it all comfort food joy,
