    • I wasn’t sure about the cinnamon. As I was stirring it, drooling over the sweet potatoes I kept thinking I wanted to add cinnamon. Did people do that? Would I ruin the entire pot? Tried it and was SO HAPPY I did!

    • Spaghetti? Really? I’ve eaten a lot of weird stuff (ask Amanda, she’ll confirm) but chili on spaghetti noodles is a bit of a stretch for me. How was it?!
