Howdy! It is starting to get pretty cool here in my neck of the woods. So I finally got the hats and mitts out and got all that organized ready for the first snowfall to hit. Probably won’t be too long now. Funny how doing all that has put me in the mood for some Corny Chili. I love this recipe. It’s a bit different from your standard chili recipes and I like that it has corn in it and isn’t as heavy. Still very comforting though :)
So last week I made Broccoli and Cheese Soup which I was so looking forward to. I’d love to say it was great and I’m sure it really is if made with regular cheese. Without even thinking I made the mistake of just adding my usual cheddar cheese into the soup. I always buy the light version and let’s just say the light version just doesn’t melt too well in a soup recipe. Especially a soup recipe that is suppose to be creamy. Ugg. We still ate it though because really at that point what else were we going to do but it didn’t have that magical creaminess about it that I know it should have had. Drat. I’ll definitely try it again sometime soon though and hopefully I’ll get it right this time.
Next weekend I’m flying out to Ontario to see my family and attend the National Professional Organizers conference in Toronto. I’m so excited about it and this year I’m going to be one of the speakers! I still can’t really believe it especially after my humbling experience last year.
Don’t forget to come on back to see what I’ll be giving away for the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival. It has something to do with menu planning so you won’t want to miss it!
