Buttermilk Cornbread

Buttermilk cornbread- perfect for soup or chili!

It is finally cornbread weather and I am SO happy.  I don’t think I’ve ever appreciated Fall as much as I am this year.  Now that I am constantly outside taking our new puppy out every few hours, I’m really starting to enjoy the cool grass and crisp air.  It would be awesome if this weather stuck around for awhile, but it always seems like we get cheated out of a true Fall here in Texas.  Some years at Halloween we will be bundled up with coats over our costumes, and some years it’s still 90 degrees out and we are sweating!

How to Switch & Save at ALDI

I have a relationship with ALDI which may include compensation or products for review.  As always, all thoughts, opinions, and love of a great deal are 100% my own.

One way that I do that is by shopping at ALDI.  There are a lot of things I like about the way ALDI does business.  They are not your super big, one-stop-shop type of store; in fact, they are proud minimalist.  Minimal overhead, advertising, staffing, operating hours, and inventory are the very reasons that you can find such great deals at ALDI.  When you are used to the big box stores, it does take some getting used when you shop there for the first time.  Like, why do I need to pay for my shopping cart and what do you mean I have to bag my own groceries?

Homemade Chili

Homemade Chili- perfect meal for cooler weather! This chili brings the heat!

I always say that enchiladas are my favorite meal my mom makes, but this chili is a close second.  I finally learned how to make this a few years ago when I entered it in my work’s annual chili cook off.  I knew it was delicious, but I never imagined I would actually win! Continue reading
