Whatever I could find in the cabinet "Chili"

Edith James


So, my dad is visiting and I needed something quick to fix that I knew he could eat. It's cold and rainy and I was not going back out to the store. For a minute I did not know how it would turn out. All I can say is "Look at what God did"!!
