I mentioned that I was in need of 'prayers' this past Sunday. Well, all went well, and my stomach has fully recovered from judging and eating 17 varieties of chili.
Seriously, it was a great time. Steve Chopko brought home the trophy for the best chili. As best I can tell, there are some OBC men who take their chili-making skills pretty seriously. I detected the evil eye from some when they were not announced as the winner. Could this be pride? I am not sure! Fortunately, there have been no threats made to me or any of the other judges.
