chili cookoff

since yesterday was a holiday and schools were not in session, i was able to go to my kiwanis club meeting. yay for postponed board of education meetings. it was potluck night (double yay for mlk day falling on the third monday), so we decided last week we’d all bring chili. we brought our yummy vegetarian chili, kind of hoping that people would eat it but also hoping they wouldn’t so i would have something to eat!

there were two other kinds of chili plus a pot of spaghetti, and my crock pot was the only one that was completely gone by the end of the meeting! everyone told me how delicious it was. i really didn’t think people would try it because it was vegetarian, but it doesn’t taste vegetarian. in fact, my brother and a bunch of joe’s friends from work who are vegetarian tried it and had to ask us if it was meatless because it tasted so real.

now everyone has realized that vegetarian food really isn’t all that bad.

    Thanks for posting the recipe. It sounds delicious! So are you strictly vegetarian, then? That’s awesome! Are you vegan at all, too? I’ve been editing a book about eating raw foods, and it has *really* inspired me to get more fruits and veggies into our diet. I have been doing great so far.

    P.S. I *reallllly* hope that you get good news today!!! Can’t wait to hear!
