Interested in trying this one. My husband has vegetarian tendencies… but I’ve been nervous about trying a veggie chili. Thought about making normal chili with like, Boca crumbles or something. Might try this though.

If you like hiking, mountain climbing, or just traveling and camping out, then sleeping bags come in quite handy. Sleeping bags are comfy readymade beds. Really simple to set up. You will just lay it and you’re ready to make use of it. But note that not all sleeping bags are the very same.
