All In Chili Bar

Pager’s birthday was this weekend, and while he originally planned a night out at the golf dome for some driving practice and snacks, like with a lot of other recent plans, his ACL tear has caused some changes. So golf night out….became poker night in!

I made myself scarce but not before helping him set up an “all in!” chili bar with the fixins. Page put his favorite chili recipe in the crock pot and I laid out every chili mix-in I could think of:

  • noodles
  • cornbread
  • sour cream
  • lime wedges
  • shredded cheese
  • crumbled bacon
  • sliced jalapenos
  • tomatoes
  • onion
  • corn chips
  • crackers

…..And you know it’s never a complete birthday without cake :) You’re never too old, even at 29, to have some army men in your cupcakes!

Happy birthday to my other half!! Glad you had a fun night – even if it WAS plan B!

    This is too cute!!! It looks like a fun party and poor Page and his ACL. :o( I love your crockpot-where did you get it? I am in the market for a new one and yours is pretty stylish.

    It was so great to meet you Friday night!

      Hi Rose! I had so much fun reading around your blog this weekend! It’s in my reader now! :) I do LOVE this crockpot – it’s AllClad from Williams Sonoma — they go on sale around the holiday season!

    I would like to use the chili bar for adult casual entertaining. How cute! Where did you find your chili bar frame?
