This is the Chili that I think of when I think Chili — it is the one that my mom has made for as long as I can remember!   Growing up (and I still do!) we would put this Chili over mashed potatoes!!   When I make it now, my husband puts his over elbow macaroni (which is how he did it growing up!)  So I ask you… how do you eat your Chili??

Lunchbox Notes – Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving - Lunch box Notes

When Munchkin started 2nd grade, was able to read pretty well, and beginning to really love jokes, I started printing jokes and to put in the lunchbox!  Munchkin LOVED it and I send about 3-4 each day!  (Sometimes I throw a sweet note from me in the mix!)

Here’s how I do it!

How to make lunch box notes

I then delete all the content, begin typing jokes/notes, and spruce them up with graphics!

You can buy the special business card paper, but I just print on cardstock or standard printer paper and cut out the jokes!

Try it out!!   Let me know how it goes!!
