After a very informative, busy and beautiful few days in Beaver Creek, Colorado late last week for the Governor’s 2008 Tourism Conference it was nice to be back in Steamboat Springs for the weekend. Although my weekend was really nothing to write home about and consisted of doing errands and watching football, I did get to make my favorite homemade meal. Making homemade chili always puts me in a cozy, fall mood and the best part is that you have leftovers for days! Fall and chili are just a few of my favorite things.
