Hearty Beef Chili

When my husband and I first got married almost 16 years ago, I had no idea how to make chili.  I searched every cookbook that I had (this was before Pinterest), and I could not find one that I truly liked.  That's when I decided to come up with my own version of a hearty beef chili.  It took a few tries, but I finally came up with my current recipe.  My husband has always loved it, and now so do my children. 

My chili has also evolved into a family tradition.  Every year on Halloween, I make a big pot of chili that we enjoy after a night of trick-or-treating. My family expects this chili, along with some Halloween cupcakes, when everyone is tired of walking the neighborhood asking for candy.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do.

DIY Halloween Banner

"This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home,
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song"

So my family might have watched "The Nightmare Before Christmas" his weekend because don't you agree that the movie is more of a Halloween movie than a Christmas movie?  My family and I love this time of year: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas.....and football.  Thoughts of cooler weather and pumpkin treats fill our minds during the month of October.  In the spirit of Halloween, my kids and I made a "Happy Halloween" banner to hang on our mantle.  It is super easy and cheap to make.
