When I was in high school, my parents started a tradition of making chili in the crockpot and a mess of cornbread muffins on Halloween night, and inviting other neighborhood parents to swing by and help themselves. It’s been years since I was home for Halloween, but coming home after trick or treating to the smell of homemade chili and the sound of laughter in the living room is one of my very favorite October 31 memories. In an effort to carry on this tradition, Dave and I will be whipping up some chili and cornbread tonight and cuddling up to watch a not-really-scary-movie. Here’s a little inspiration for a cozy Halloween!
