We Might Be a Little Corny. Sorry, Did You Fall for that Bad Joke?

Thanks to all who came ’round for our Donut Day. It was a delicious day. Did you enjoy the peach flavored cider samples? Half-gallons of peach flavored and red raspberry flavored cider will be available this season (while supplies last).


Have you made it in to see our Fall Candy yet? Here’s another preview:  Gummi Candy Corn (vanilla flavored), Sour Pumpkin Heads (which get great customer reviews) and Pumpkin Pancake Mix (just add water & oil).


If you are heading out (to the field, to the game, to shop), and need a little lunch, stop by for a Freshly Made Personal Sandwich. Our homemade Italian Parmesan buns are amazing!

One Pot Chili Mac

Serves 6 Time: 30 minutes.
How great is that – one pot! Make your own “chicken broth” by using chicken flavored soup base. It’s so easy. Just add a tablespoon to a cup of water and instant chicken broth.
  • 1 Pound of Ground Beef
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons of garlic or garlic paste
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth or 3 1/2 cups
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 can (14.5 ounce) white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 can (14.5 ounce) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • OR use 1 can of either of the kidney beans so as to not have extras laying around.
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon season salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 10 ounces uncooked pasta noodles
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
*These ingredients are available at The Country Cupboard.
  1. In a large dutch oven or pot, cook ground beef & onion until ground beef is cooked through and onion is soft and translucent. Add garlic and cook for 2 more minutes.
  2. Drain if needed {depends on fat content of ground beef}
  3. Add chicken broth, tomatoes, white kidney beans, kidney beans, chili powder, cumin, salt & pepper. Mix well and bring to a boil.
  4. Add pasta and boil 12 – 15 minutes until pasta is cooked through. Stir as needed.
  5. When pasta has absorbed liquid and is cooked through, add cheese and mix well.
  6. Cook for another 5 minutes or until pasta is cooked through.
