A few weeks ago, when the weather first started to get a little brisk, a few of us at work were talking about making chili. I had the bright idea to have a shop-wide chili cook-off. I ran it by my boss, who happily gave it his blessing. The big competition was Friday.
I was expecting three or four people to show up with chili. We had eight. So many, in fact, that there was no clear winner. I heard good things about MSgt Hammes's and Johnny's creations, but since mine was the only vegetarian entry, it was the only one I sampled. I'll have plenty of opportunities to sample more of it, because my refrigerator is full of the leftovers.
