Cornbread Waffles with Chili recipe from
Despite the fact that yesterday was 102 degrees in St. Louis, I am SOO ready for fall! I’ve got my fall wreath hung, a little Halloween/fall center piece on my table and although I’m tempted to swap out my summer clothes for my winter ones, stepping outside yesterday made me re-think that idea. How unfortunate. I’m ready for cooler weather, colored leaves, boots, and warm comfort food!The other night I was really craving some chili, but I didn’t want it over a baked potato (which is a go-to meal when I’m too lazy to make dinner). I made this tasty cornbread waffle instead, threw some chili on it, and laughed at how easily impressed and excited Jeff was about this meal!  It was super yummy and put a fun twist on an easy weeknight meal.  The cornbread waffles is SO yummy! You could also serve it with butter and honey or jam and it’s delicious!
