Chili, Pie & Tradition, Oh My!
We could not have asked for a more perfect night for the chili cook-off. At just under 100 guests, half of who were kids, the farm hummed. The kids just ran and played, while the adults socialized, ate, and enjoyed a libation, or two. We had eight chili entries this year and five pie entries.
Everything went very smoothly with the exception that a game of capture the flag went awry after a brief interlude with a ground wasp nest (I guess that turned out to be a good, yet dangerous place to hide the flag). Thankfully, everyone is just fine, but there were some stings to the evening. All upset seemed to fade in memory as the sky darkened and the glow sticks emerged, we had our own little fireflies running far and wide.
The chili winner was a White Chicken Chili and the pie winner was a Gin and Juice.
Congrats to all of the winners, and a special salute to our wounded (stung) warriors....
Chili Cook-off 2013, over and out!
