Yummy Mummy Monday: Turkey Chili & Margaritas!

This week's recipe comes to us courtesy of Chelsea Cattermole of Around Town With Mommy (check out her bio at the end of this post). It's great to enjoy comfort food, but we need a reminder that Summer did and will happen again this time of year. I think chilli & margaritas will serve that purpose! Us Moms need our grown- up juice, especially with the chaos of the holidays upon us. So enough with the chatter & onto the good stuff! ;)

Hello,
I’m Chelsea from Around Town With Mommy and a proud mother to a baby girl named Marley. Since becoming a parent, I’ve noticed that there aren’t that many websites or even blogs that help other mothers. So I have decided to create Around Town With Mommy, for new moms like myself with the tricks and tribulations of being a new parent, feature different companies that both the mother and baby would love, cute DYI projects, great recipes that the whole family would love, and of course the name says it all, events that are happening around town that are family friendly!!!! I hope you enjoy Oh yeah... keep an eye out.... as I may do some special blog post about mine and Marley’s adventures
