Oh So Chili!

By Balancingonhoney @balancinghoney

Cold, Cold, Cold!

Lately, I have been anticipating the end of the semester, the end of school, and the next thing in my life (whatever that is). Today, I am thankful for my flexible days and cozy couch. I am planted in front of a space heater under a thick zebra blanket and giant lime green hoodie. I have no intentions of facing the cold for at least another couple of hours.

Last night, while the temperature was dropping, I decided dinner was going to be chili and beer bread. I went to a Taste of Home cooking show with some friends, so I have a long list of recipes I want to try from the magazines they distributed.

The chili was soooo good. I a little wetter then chili I am used to, but I so enjoyed it with my hubby as the cold came in. The beer bread was a perfect side to the warm bowl of chili. I have never made beer bread before, but it was very easy and very delicious.
