What to wear? To a chili supper.

I want to share my chili recipe with you guys because (not to brag) everyone usually loves it and it's SO easy to make, as long as you know how to use a can-opener you're good to go! The only thing is, I hate taking pictures of my chili-making process because it honestly looks disgusting. Just trust me on this one guys, it's delicious.

Leslie's Crazy Throw Everything In To Make It Taste Good---Chili.

1 Crock Pot
1 LARGE can of Chili Beans or two small cans (I use the hot variety, but mild is good too)
1 can of corn (yes, I said corn. Remember, I said trust me!)
1 can of low sodium black beans
2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 can of tomato paste
2 chopped up jalapeno peppers
a few dashes of Tobasco Sauce (DON'T SKIP THE TOBASCO!)
a few dashes of chili powder
a few dashes of cumin (for those who don't know, a few is about three and a dash is one "shake")
1 pound of ground TURKEY OR VENISON, browned in a skillet.

Toss everything in the crock pot. Cook on high until bubbly and warm, about 2 hours. OR cook on low heat all day if you want. Garnish with guacamole or sour cream---enjoy!

I'm telling you this recipe never fails for feeding a crowd. You can also use beef if your wary of any other type of meat. I use turkey and deer because it's heart healthy and WAY leaner than beef. I did snap a quick pic of the chili so you could see the finished product. Be warned, it's kind of ugly.

We had chili Sunday evening at Daniel's aunt and uncles house, and here's what I thought would be appropriate to wear to a chili supper.

The boots look a bit western with this floral print dress, and I love the mix of navy and maroon with the tights.
