Oh man....it is COOOOOLLLLLDDDDD here! Barely got out of the 30's today with wind chills in the low 20's. That is very cold for Austin. Wow...but I love it! Made me wish I wasn't finished with my Christmas shopping. :)
So tonight for dinner I made homemade chili, cornbread, sweet tea, and warm gingerbread.
My Mom came over to eat, too.
Had the fireplace on...was very cozy and warm.
I love this time of year :)
Here are some pictures I took while I was waiting for dinner to finish.
(the stair photo is the garland and lights I have on our stairs. I bought wired ribbon at Hobby Lobby that has little Santa hats on it and made bows)
Hint...in your chili, substitute crushed tomatoes for the tomato sauce.
Makes it a really good consistency and gives it great flavor!
From Target....was really good!
Stay warm!! :)
