|Chili and Cornbread!|
|Huge pot of chili!|
I made a HUGE pot of Chili tonight. For no other reason than it sounded good. And it was. I served it up with some good ol' skillet cornbread, and I was a happy gal.
These are both my own recipes and I don't want to brag, but DAMN this meal was tasty!

1 whole head, or 8-10 cloves of garlic, minced
