** This recipe is already posted on the blog and it’s one of our favorites.  It’s easy to make, hearty and the leftovers are wonderful.  My suggestion is to make a pot of this chili and eat the leftovers the next day

TIP OF THE WEEK:

If you have a little extra time in the morning and want to make something sweet, try these maple cinnamon crescent rolls.  They keep nicely in the refrigerator for a couple of days.  These crescent rolls are easy to make using a roll of refrigerated crescent rolls.  You can leave out the maple syrup if you’d like and make simple cinnamon crescent rolls.
