Chunky Chili

 Chunky Chili
I love to cook and bake, especially for the holidays when our children and grandchildren are here! For years, I helped my husband farm while holding down a job in town. Then he became an insurance agent and I helped him again. We still have the farm, but now I have more time to do other things I enjoy.
