LouisvilleMoJoChiliCookOff


Well, it was fun once again to pit my chili against others of this annual fall event and tho I barely skimmed by the skin of my teeth this year I again won the #1 Judges Choice Award!

The judges were: Eric 7of9, Gem, OMC Worm, Ilex, Jake of all Trades, & BeachBum Chris.

I was thrilled & a bit shocked b/c my friend Ilex had managed to wander over to me before the winners were announced & told me-

“I don’t think you won this year dawn, your chili was as always good but… ya know… “

I told him I really didn’t mind, no biggie, I’d already won two years running as #1 Judges Choice and there is always next year.

So when Big Sea (Casey, the organiser & big hoo-ha of this event) announced the winners, I still held my breath waiting; thinking maybe Ilex was wrong but the man I’ve known for two years now has never lied to me (that I am aware of anyway) so why would he on this, knowing it really IS a big deal to me.

Big Sea called my name (stating.. “and for the third *F*ing year in a row…” I looked at Ilex b/c I was surprised & the man was ROLLING from laughing so much..

the twithead KNEW he’d gotten me & was giggling like a rabid schoolgirl. I wanted to bean him with my ladel. lol

All in all it was a fun day and the event managed to raise almost $800 for Breast Cancer and it was attended by MANY MANY MoFo…

but later on, my narcolepsy kicked into high gear and I crashed right there on the davenport of the BBC Brewery on Clay and Main where this event was held.

Cinn (bless her heart) snapped a photo of me snogged out like a light and then someone (Chuck??) had it posted on the front page of LVMoJo..

I was a bit taken aback that someone had taken my picture while I was in a state to not say yay or nay but then I too, saw the humour in it and ended up laughing b/c well- it WAS funny!

Then bless Ilex’s heart, he made sure I got somewhere so I could sleep off my nap attack safely.

He is a good friend even if he does like making me squirm as to whether or not I won a cooking event. :)

Here are a couple of links (you’ll have to cut/paste- sorry) to some of the photo galleries/threads of this event.
