Below is a great quick turkey gravy from Mc Cormick, and a fantastic Texas style chili for hungry football fans. I've also included my Ciao Bella Chili, that won 4th place at the Beverly Hills Chili cook-off.

Wishing Cody Chandler Hilton and Joey Tanny very happy November Birthday's! I love you both and hope you have a joyful day.

Please don't forget to keep praying for our men and women fighting in foriegn lands, especially during the holiday season. Pray they all come home safely, or for a family visit during the holidays. Pray for Peace!
