The Girls Show Their Stuff

Halloween tableTypically we are on the road between Maine and Houston on Halloween, and this year is no exception.  Refusing to let their special night be ignored, Helga, Henrietta and Hildy flew right in, joined at the hip, to suggest an early celebration.

Halloween tableBlack, of course, is favored by the girls so it’s no surprise to see it as their primary color choice.  Naturally, it had to be accented with a little orange and ruffles, well, those are bewitching.  And just look at the sassy way the three H’s presented napkins and flatware.  Do they think rules apply when creating a table?  It sure doesn’t look like it!

Halloween tableWho can blame them as they did an admirable job of pulling things together in just a matter of minutes.  Their effort sure put the pressure on me to come up with something yummy to serve. I remembered seeing a white bean/chicken chili recipe on Everyday Sarah Jane that looked very tasty.  Let’s take a look.

chicken chiliThough her recipe calls for chard, I substituted kale since it was on hand.  I also added a hefty dash of cumin and kernels from an ear of corn that needed to be used. I’m thinking this chili will be a crowd favorite on a chilly night.  

Thanks to Helga, Henrietta and Hildy for showing their stuff and making all this happen.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
