Beautiful Chili Weekend

Finally, we cooked chili in chili cooking weather again.
The front blew in bringing some rain and dropping temps down in the 40's. Strong North winds and drizzle all day made cooking pretty miserable, but no one complained at all. Just the day before it was in the mid 90's so we were all loving it.

I got to walk! My chili got 9th place and I won this nice little mug as a trophy. The wife and the daughter got 13th and 14th.
Our team also won first place in show getting this really neat metal trophy. We weren't going to do show, but we really liked the trophy.

So now we are looking for sponsors so we can keep cooking. For 40.00 dollars the wife and I can cook next weekend. If you are looking for something to do with forty dollars that will go to charity then hit the donate button on the right and we will put your name on our cooking box as a sponsor for this chili year. The money from all the cooks at these cook offs go to the charity of the ones putting it on. If that's something you feel led to do then we appreciate it and will give you all the credit when we win.

We had a great time this weekend and I hope to continue cooking.   

Talk to ya tomorrow,
MDR

  1. I have stuff to make my chili but it just hasn't been the right weather, funny how the weather determines something like that. We are due to get some rain and cool weather tomorrow so maybe then.

  4. YAY! You found a way I can help! My $40 is on the way, then I'm going to run over to MMs and do the same thing while we still have it. lol

    Buddy, things are getting tight all over, but you'll be able to cook again if enough people hit that yellow button!

    1. OH! And you knew I was scared to travel all the way to Indiana to see my sister. Well, we got so nearly KILLED in Atlanta that even Joe is scared to do it again! Please visit my blog and see if YOU think my sister blossomed while I was there. I'm so glad I have photos of it, or I would think it was my imagination.

  7. So, would it work for you to host a chili cook off at your place to earn a little? I have no idea what would be involved in such....

    1. No April, all the money raised at the cook offs go to charity. That is governed by CASI
