This Saturday, October 16th, marks the 3rd annual Little Bearfoot Farm Chili Cook-off, along with pumpkin carving/decorating for the kids!!! This thing has taken off, and everyone is out to prove that they have what it takes to make an award winning chili. In fact, there are some who have been planning and preparing for this event now for months!!!
In our first year, we set out to have a reason to bring friends and family together to have some fun, and to allow the kids the opportunity to carve pumpkins and make a big mess out in the shop. We didn't really think a whole lot about a nice first place trophy, or put much into a boobie prize either. However, after such a great time, and so many varieties of chili coming forth, we decided that we were going to need to make this an annual event!
For the record, in the very first year, Tim Robarts took overall first place winner, while Tiffani Stauffer hands down won the boobie prize.
So, before the big day arrived last year, Tracie put forth the thought and the effort to come up with a nice wooden wall hanging plaque for the first place winner to be able to have and hang on their wall for the next year. Each year we can have the first place winners name added to the plaque.
Last year, Brad Neitling won first place, and so the plaque has been hanging in our house, since Brad is living with us currently.
The question now is, who will be the winner for this year? Who has what it takes to get the votes? Who really wants it? And who is in for the boobie prize?
So, with that, today is chili making day for me. I go to work tomorrow, and have a very busy day on Saturday, so I need to get my chili perfected and finished today. This may very well be the secret to winning this year.... allowing the chili to sit and gain flavor for two days before the competition!
