I have decided that September is my very favorite time of year.  My husband and I got married in September; our 12th anniversary happened to be yesterday.   The weather starts to cool down just enough to open the windows and to be comfortable wearing jeans outside.  You begin to see crunchy leaves filling the sidewalks, and I also love the start of the fall sports season.  Even though I graduated from school oh so many years ago, I still get a small sense of excitement when I hear the school marching bands playing outside, the cross country kids running around town and see people gathering at the local University for a game of football.

We happen to live within a mile of our local high school AND a large state university.  So we have double the teams to root for and double the football games to attend.  So. Much. Fun!

Another thing I always look forward to,  when the weather starts to get cooler is to make a pot of chili.  An autumn rite of passage.  This past weekend my parents were visiting from Chicago, and I made these meatless chili burgers for everyone for lunch.  They were delicious and got me into a fall weather kind of mood!

Sometimes, I like to switch up my menu and serve a meatless meal.   Not only is eating meatless good for the environment, but I think it is a good idea to give my kids a variety of different foods to try.  Plus when I choose to eat a meatless meal, I tend to eat more vegetables and to eat more vegetables is always a goal I have.

I have been eating MorningStar Farms® products since I was in college, and enjoy them.  I picked up these New MorningStar Farms® Meat Lovers Burgers at Walmart last week.  These were super easy to store in the freezer and grill up quickly when it was mealtime.  These quarter-pounder sized vegetable burgers were filling and tasted really good!

Check out some awesome recipe ideas!

This MorningStar Farms® Meat Lovers Burger has a ” beef like” taste but instead is made with 27 grams of positive plant protein.  When I made these chili burgers for lunch for my parents, my dad thought he was eating beef before I told him that it was indeed not.   These burgers grilled up in no time.

When I make meatless Chili, I like to use vegetables with substance.  I added sweet potatoes and lots of corn to my chili, it turned out fantastic!
