There’s something about September, Farmers Markets and college football that screams “Make Chili!”. Well, that and a coworker’s comment and a quick review of chili cook-offs from the past. We scored a peck of Beefsteak tomatoes at the Rockford Farmers Market with the intention of canning a few quarts of diced tomatoes. Some of those lovely maters were reserved for a small batch of fresh sausage chili. We added some amazing poblano peppers from our ingredient quest last weekend, along with a bunch of secret items. Hopefully it turns out OK. The color of these tomatoes is testimony to the freshness of the homegrown fruit this time of year 🍅🍅🍅

We’ve been dreaming of having a Trader Joe’s in Grand Rapids, and when we woke up this morning, our dream has come true!
The grand opening was yesterday, but we got there early today to beat the crowds and were rewarded with multitudes of GMO-free wonderfulness, all at amazing low prices….we’ll be back often!
