McKinley's Chili Cookoff

Today was our favorite fellowship event at church....the annual Chili Cookoff! Most year's Brian competes but even if he doesn't, we all love to EAT! There are three categories....regular, vegetarian, and hot and spicy. This year, my sister-in-law ( a former winner) was going to bring a veggie chili but Veronica decided she wanted to help too and ended up making the chili all herself. With a little guidance, she picked all the ingredients and the quantities and did the stirring and everything- the cookoff's youngest ever competitor!

The chili stations were all over Westminster Hall and congregation members went back and back and back in order to try each option!

Brian's Hot and Spicy entry! Made with deer steak and bacon and BEER, of course!
While Veronica didn't place in her first competition, Pastor Keith made a BIG deal about her participation and made her feel amazing...even gave her a special $1 prize of her own!
Brian on the other hand, won second place!!! Go Brian!
