Soup’s On – Game Day Chili

Thanksgiving is just 4 days away and all I can think about is a big bowl of chili.  I’ve got my grocery shopping done, my cooking schedule made, and now I want to eat chili and watch football.  Haha. Actually, a pot of chili is a great idea.  Lunch and/or dinner is taken care of…
