There's nothing like having a pot of chili simmering on the stove on a chilly evening. It will be served over cornbread or with crackers. You can also serve it over rice and top it with cheese. It makes for a very inexpensive, yet filling meal.
The next time I do the grocery shopping I must pick up cocoa and marshmallows to make hot chocolate. Since I'm not a coffee drinker, hot chocolate will be a nice substitute on cold autumn and winter mornings.
I made a batch of peanut butter cookies, as I had planned. I doubled the recipe. I chose to use an easy recipe...all you need is 1 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 egg (recipe not doubled). Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. I like to roll mine in sugar and flatten with a fork to get the "plaid" design. They turned out to be delicious!
