Fall snow storm and chili

I am thrilled that we had a snowy day today!
I've stayed in my jammies all day :)

The girls made a snow man, they had the best time playing outside.

Love their rosy cheeks. Taela (age 10) is ready for hot chocolate.

Kila (age 8).

Corn bread is a must if you make chili!

The day just called for some chili.
I first started with chopped peppers.


I make it the speedy way, these help a lot!

Saute in my birthday gift from my sister, my Le Creuset pot.
How I love this pot!

Add the ground beef and brown.

Add the tomatoes and beans.
Bring to a (almost) boil and then down to low and you are done!

I like to add jalapenos for added heat, a dollop of sour cream, a pinch of cheese and fresh cilantro.

The 4 inches or so that we got is almost melted and the sun has come out, love these Colorado days!

Have a great weekend!



  1. Wow! I am not ready (never am) for snow, but it looks so pretty where you live. Great looking chili and corn bread, too. xo

  2. It's just crazy to think that someone is enjoying snow right now! We are just beginning to cool off a bit here in Texas!

  3. How I love me a good snow! Cannot wait till our first snow comes here in my part of the world. Happy day to you!

  4. Amazing! Snow, already? The girls looks like they are having a lot of fun!

  5. Hi Shanon!

    Wow, you are all so lucky that it snows over there!!! Here in SoCali...not so much! In order to enjoy it in all its glory, we have to actually take a trip to the mountains to do that!!! lol Wish we could have snow in our yards like that.. **sigh**

    And your cornbread looks delish!!! And I agree, love the le creuset pot...cooks things so much better, doesn't it?!?!? Anyway, looks like ya'll had a fun & cozy weekend!!! Enjoy your new week! :)
