Growing up one of my favorite meals my mom would make was her homemade chili. I remember being able to smell it throughout the whole house after coming inside from playing in the snow. Perfect meal for the cold winter months. Chili is a hardy and delicious meal. I love all the different toppings like cheese, onions, chives, and cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.


One of my favorite events is coming up this weekend, the 4th Annual Grey Face Rescue Chili Cook-Off. Grey Face Rescue is hosting its 4th Annual Chili Cook-Off and they are partnering with Milk & Honey Ciders. You can sample all sorts of delicious chili for only $10.
