This weekend I was so excited to meet my sister queen Bonnie (Mrs. Texas) at the Chili Cook Off benefiting the families of slain firefighters. Of course being in Texas our state dish is Chili! The event was set up in Grapevine, TX with several booths decorated each with its own individual theme. There were 3 categories, starting with the professional level of chili cooker (all who are certified) down to the novice chili cookers. It was a great day to be outside and we presented the winners with the awards. It is so great to be the first person to say congratulations to a winner who has worked so hard at their craft!
