I am giving you your Thursday recipe a day early, because I am having a garage sale with a friend on Thursday and Friday. I must confess I have not tasted this chili but my friend says it is yummy and I believe her. I love chili, I love most any thing right now maybe even cardboard. I have had chili with cocoa in it and I must say it was delicious.
I have to tell you a funny thing my grandchild said, we were getting ready to take a shower together and her comment was, “Mom mo, how come your tummy looks smaller with your clothes on and not so small with them off?” I had no explanation LOL.
