Chili is one of my husbands favorite meals.  When he is working on an outside project; he does not like coming into the house for lunch. It is times like this that I make chili, soups and one dish meals.  He appreciates the hearty meal and I appreciate all his hard work!  I get a storage unit that I have wanted for many years.  We can actually spring clean this year and turn the junk room into a sewing room!  How sweet it will be!  Lets make chili and beans!
