Feel free to share the recipe! Sammie is in a Gold Dust or Bust performance this week & I have to make a scarf for her as part of her costume. I promise to share it! 4th grade seems to bring a lot of extra activities around history. Speaking of history if you want to see what the hottest chili pepper on record is or other Chili Pepper history & Facts on Wikipedia! or the history of Chili Con Carne on Wikipedia!
