Trying out Suzie Homemaker...

Pin It!

I have been loving every minute of the fall weather!!
When the air is slightly chilly but the sun is out...perfect.
I have my pumpkin spice candles lit every night, fire in the fireplace,
our plug-in pumpkin
(yes, we were very lazy this year)
blankets and hot chocolate!

Could that photo be any cheesier? HAHA.

This weather also makes me feel a bit homey
and I've been baking pumpkin bread and trying different recipes.
Last Friday, we invited my brother and his girlfriend over for dinner.
I decided to attempt chili one more time
{last years was a huge flop.}

I got a recipe from my friend Shavonda
and threw it all in the crockpot on Friday morning.
It is SO nice to walk in the door after work
and have the house smelling delicious and dinner made!

I whipped up some Jiffy cornbread muffins to go with dinner 
and we topped the chili with sourcream, avocado slices, onions and cheese.
Mmmm, this year was much better!

Unfortunately for this new hostess,
I totally didn't make the hubby got the shaft.
He made a turkey dog, and I gave him a tiny scoop of chili to put on top.
Lesson learned, make more than you think you'll need.

{I figured I would add some festive spirit to the cornbread muffins}
