Even though we've had some highs in the eighties, I am in full fall mode. I want nothing to do with summer. I'm ready to wrap myself in my favorite cozies: sweaters, scarves, and wool socks. I love the smell of spice and only have one use for my crock pot (this chili) so I thought it would be amazing to use it to fill our house with the warm smell of cloves, cinnamon, apple, and orange. A jolt of fall into our seasonally challenged home. We also decided since we had everything on hand, to whip up some hot apple cider - and then I started sweating and we had to turn the air down.
