Chilly Chili Cook-Off!

February 1, 2014 in Featured Posts

Last night, in the middle of winter, a couple dozen neighbors in lower Lents did a walk-about tour among six houses to taste everyone’s home-made chili. What fun! Everyone had scorecards and there was a tallying of votes by the end. Highlights included Leigh’s white bean and rabbit chili and, though I didn’t get to try it, Jacob’s All-Texas chili. I enjoyed that we all got to visit the homes of such different folks: a long-time resident, newlyweds new to the ‘hood, and a couple that’s squatting in a long-abandoned (and therefore candlelit) house.

All in all it was like rapid-fire hospitality. Really fun!
