Snow blowing, chilled to bone, warm you up chili

Happy 2014!!! I can’t believe that it is 2014. One of my resolutions is to make more time to blog. Well use my time more efficiently. There is no reason for me to sit on the couch more than an hour and not do anything ( everyone needs some time to veg). Anyways Saint Louis is frigid cold right now. I feel like I’m in Minnesota with the negative temps. Temperatures this cold call for something that will warm you up!
