Chilli, Cookies and Cornbread

Good Morning,
It's Monday and Maddie has decided to sleep in a bit (Yeah). It's 7:22am and not a peep, yet... Saturday was nice. Gabe was gone the whole day (sad)-he had to work and then to dog show and then back to work to bathe the show dog, and then home. Maddie and I got up early and went to the Farmer's Market in Old Town. We bought one large tomato, two apples, a loaf of sandwich bread, a mini blueberry bread, and a basket of brussel sprouts. I know, none of the items seem to go together, but that's sort of how the farmer's market is. Plus, it was fun to see how the selections have changed now that it's supposedly fall here. I say supposedly because even though the calendar says it's fall, sometimes the temperature says summer. Anyways, Maddie and I came home and hung out and then went on a nice long walk in the afternoon. It was a nice day. On Sunday, I woke up early and went to church. It was a good service and once again I was thankful that I could get there. I say that because often on Sundays, something will come up that will make it impossible for me to get to church-dog show, out of town, etc. I decided later in the day to make chili. I made it in the slow cooker and also made some cornbread to go along with it. Then I still had time and Maddie was napping and Gabe wasn't home, so I decided to make Halloween sugar cookies-and then decorate them with frosting and sprinkles. We took the food over to Gabe's parents house and fed everyone and they were saying that I had been "very domestic" that day. I said, "yeah, that and I was trying to fill my day..." Have a great week!

You are so funny. Really weird that you did chilli and cornbread, Justin and I made the exact same thing last Sunday. But we had mexy cornbread, it has bits of green chillis and some cheese in it, you would love it! I will get you the recipe.
Also just wanted to comment, and let the world know, that I have a great big sister. One who listens to me and lets me vent on subjects and always gives me great advice, no matter how frusterating a situation. She knows what I am talking about. I see how other sibling relationships can be and I am thankful that mine are awesome.

I do know what you are talking about Lizzy and I too am thankful that my siblings are people that I'm proud of, I look up to, and that I love deeply. Not everyone has that. Weird that we made the same dinner one week apart and didn't talk about it! Great minds, think alike :) Love you.
