Back to the Chili Bowl
Posted by cmh gourmand on January 19, 2009
The Clintonville Chili Bowl is back and I am looking for redemption, not with the Methodists but for my chili making. I made a pretty good chili last year. It was a little exotic for the crowd but it received some spicy comments. I also think I may have been robbed. My chili was called Italian Chili Number 9 (like love potion number nine – though not as effective). However my entry number was 6. Throughout the event, helpful chili eaters kept turning my entry number around so it was number 9. My memory is a little hazy, but I think number 9 won. This year I am toning down the spice and turning up the meat with buffalo and steak. I am going for a big win!
The Maple Grove United Methodist Church is hosting the Clintonville Chili Bowl on January 31st from 5 – 7 PM. The judges will be a congregation of local preachers. Contestants will be competing for a trophy and chili champion bragging rights for one year and/or the People’s Choice Award. Admission is $5 for a belly full of various chili concoctions. Proceeds from the event go to the the Clintonville Community Resource Center. A couple of words about CRC – it is a great non profit organization that helps individuals in need in our community – with a focus on the elderly and the homeless. This is a very worthy cause.
Maple Grove is at the corner of High Street and Henderson Road. To enter your chili, contact Miriam at firstname.lastname@example.org
