Fall Menu Plan – Hubby Loves It Chili and Cornbread

The slow cooker and I are BFF!

Especially in the Fall when the holiday busyness is picking up and the Happy Home wants something other than cereal for dinner – again. :-)

I just love this recipe for chili (the ultimate Fall Comfort Food) that I found in a Southern Living magazine a few years ago, and the Happy Hubby loves it, too!

I hope you enjoy!
