    Last night minimal meat with carrots (for sweetness), cocoa, and must have beans…thanks Megan for a heart warming post.

  2. Thanks for mentioning our venison chili recipe from the D’Artagnan cookbook! We sure could use a hot bowl of that chili today. And FYI, you can order the venison from our website if you can’t find it locally.
