If I trick-or-treated (of course I don't), these are the five candies I would hope to find in my plastic pumpkin carrier:
M&M's (the plain ones): Naturally. They're my favorite candy.
Three Musketeers: Another favorite. I prefer the full-size bars, but bite-size is yummy as well.
Milky Way Dark: This is the only time I prefer the "dark side." These are better than the original Milky Way.
Caramel Apple Twizzlers: I can only find them in the autumn, and they are my absolute favorite Twizzler.
Big Gummy Life Saver Rings: I'd forgotten how much I enjoy these until I found them in the mixed bag of candy we purchased to pass out to trick-or-treaters. (I may or may not have eaten one or two. Or ten.)
Now that it's officially autumn and the weather is cooler, it's time to break out the hoodies, sweaters, and soup recipes. One recipe I make frequently is my homemade chili. Neither Sean nor I like beans, so my recipe is the bean-less variety.
Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, seasoning with onion powder, crushed red pepper, and chili powder.
Drain grease. Transfer beef to a 4-quart sauce pan.
Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, onion and chili powders.
Simmer over low heat until chili comes to a low boil.
I like to serve mine with either peanut butter and honey sandwiches or corn muffins. Enjoy!
Until the next post . . . keep smiling.
