First of all - excuse my poor typing skills in my link. I had to put it in twice!
Blessings on you for putting this up early - I have a hard time getting on to link while at work. Your chili looks wonderful!

I can not wait to try this recipe!!! We love chili here and I try to keep it interesting.

On your Little House post yesterday...I love the you know. I love to watch the episodes because it reminds me to slow down and enjoy the everyday blessings in life that might be hidden by the bad stuff. Next month our museum is having a Laura Ingalls Wilder day and I'm hoping to take a lot of pictures and post them on my blog, so everyone can go along with us. There is also going to be a visit from one of the stars of the show. Last year it was "Nellie" Allison Arngrim.

Have a wonderful day!!
