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!

    This looks good and I am going to have to try it on my family. I have older boys and I am trying to get them to cook during the week and to use some creativity in there cooking.
