C-cret Ingredient Chili

Tonight was the Chili Cook-Off at school. Kindergarten entered a "C-cret Ingredient" chili as the "Pampered Chefs" (pampered as in spa-like...not as in the cooking tool company). See our robes...yep...it's our pampered wear! We also have on our pink chefs hats and our nametags. You can't see it, but we had on flip flops with pedicure toe sponges too! I won't reveal the actual "C-cret ingredients of the chili," but I will tell you that they all begin with the letter C.

We didn't place in the top 3 in the competition, but we ran a close 4th place. We were just happy to get one vote, but I think we actually earned at least 12 votes-yippy! If there had been a vote for the biggest hearts in the competition, I feel sure we would have taken first place--just check out our decorations for our 3ft. table space:

Check out our framed sign with our name on it. We had a bamboo tree and ferns too! We even had a chair for a "Free Massage" (with fine print at the bottom reading--with a vote for our chili!)while you snacked on our chocolates! We had to share our table with another competitor team serving "pumpkin chili"--so you see their decorations too.
We went through 2 crock pots of chili...must have been those c-cret ingredients!
It's times like these that I'm reminded of how much I miss friends! Christy would have added such a sparkle to our competition! I know she would've helped by talking up our chili to all the tasters. Dawn would've been sooooooooooooooo proud of our decorations and mood music playing. Megan-remember all those Chili Cookoffs at the Flat? We would've been dangerous with one of those 12 ft. tables from back in the day to decorate! Good times!
It's also times like these that I'm thankful for family! Thank you to DoDo, EJ, and Hubby for making today/tonight fun for the kids while I was at the Cook-Off! Ya'll are the BEST!
