Whether you are planning a quiet, romantic night or feeding a crowd during the big game (go Seahawks!), this week’s box has everything you need for a cozy, satisfying chili supper. Our classic beef chili pairs perfectly with freshly-baked cornbread, organic winter greens topped with blue cheese and hazelnuts and a fresh fruit crisp to finish.
Here are a few of our recipe ideas for this week:
