Chili Cookoff!

No recipe post today, but I had to share news about an upcoming event.  I’m going to be competing in the Music City Chili Cookoff.  This will be my second time competing in a cookoff, the last was also a chili competition.  I failed miserably lost admirably when I competed back in 2009.  This competition will be done a bit differently as all the prep & cooking is done at home.  You just show up with your finished product.  (I can’t even begin to tell you what a relief that is.)

Entry fee is a mere $30, and the prize money is $200 for first place, $100 for second, and $50 for third.  Not too shabby!  But, this isn’t just an event for competitors.  It’s a full family event!  There will be a bounce house for the kids, live music, and a beer garden.  The cookoff will benefit the Community Shares and TN Literacy Coalition.  The fee to attend the event is a minimum $5 donation, and that small price means that you are a judge!  Yup, that’s right, no panel of judges.  Everyone who attends the event gets to sample and vote!

Also, they will have a Beer Garden set up by Yazoo & Ole Smoky Moonshine.  For $15 you get six 8oz glasses of beer, and two shots of Old Smoky Moonshine’s Apple Pie Moonshine.  Is that a fantastic deal or what!?  So when I lose, you might want to look there for me to be drowning my sorrows!  😉

For more info, check out their website.  I hope to see you there!
