Brrr… It’s Chili Outside!

The mornings and evenings have been very chilly lately. Fall is in the air! This brisk weather has got me thinking about the different stews, soups, and my personal favourite, chilies that I can be making in the kitchen! It’s the perfect way to warm up on a “chili” evening. This week, all of the Kidco Kitchen sites enjoyed a delicious Bean Chili and a Mini Cornbread Muffin, yum! Why not try this delicious Kidco Kitchen meal at home with your children?
