Can I just tell you how excited I am that Halloween is just a little over a week away? Whoop! Whoop! It's one of my favorite days of the year! Ever since the girls were little, we've been following the same Halloween traditions. The day before, we find a Trunk or Treat to attend. The church down the road usually does one, so we don't have to go far. The day of, my best friend brings her kids to my house and we take them around the neighborhood for candy. Afterwards, we go go to my mother-in-laws for her yearly chili dinner. I've been thinking about Halloween a lot lately, and with that my mind always gravitates towards chili. Why? Because it's yum! And it's tradition. Last week, I decided to curb my craving and made some Chili with Cornbread Topping from Golden Blossom Honey. And, it was just as yummy as what my mother-in-law makes!
