Fall Kick Off Menu Post

I know this is technically the final week of summer, but since we have turned our air conditioning off and I am wearing a sweatshirt I kind of consider it to be fall now. I have out all of my fall decorations, bought an adorable wire owl from Pier 1 Imports, and am ready to purchase some pumpkin scented candles now that they are officially selling pumpkins at the grocery store. Besides making these hellish burgers last night, I really am sort of over summer. It was hot. Really hot and I welcome fall with open arms. This week's menu is my official kick off to fall. I'm ready to bring the cooking back indoors. Savory chicken, penne mac'n'cheese,  and chili here I come.
