It's now officially fall but minus enjoying a few pumpkin beers, I have held onto summer as long as possible.
However I think it's time to sadly put away my sandals and embrace the nice aspects of autumn before it gets too cold and miserable. No, I'm not a super crazy pumpkin lady, but I have been known to devour a bag of those Mellowcreme pumpkins and candy corns each fall. A bag or two plus one after Halloween when the candy goes on sale.
When colder temperatures arrive I love making soups, stews, and chilis for dinner. I'm looking at incorporating more meatless meals into my dinner rotation so when I saw this Lentil Sloppy Joe recipe on Pinterest from Shape.com I was excited to try it. I used the recipe more as a guideline but am pleased to say it resulted in a hearty meal. I didn't end up blending the mixture and kept it chunky so I could eat it like a chili. I piled it on top of a baked sweet potato for a delicious & filling dinner.
