I just came in 1ST place in our office chili cook-off!!!! Wooohoo! (I won a $25 gas gift card.)
We had the cook-off to raise money for the breast cancer research fund "Race for the Cure". There hadn't been an entry yet in the "other" category, so I was told to make some- and since I didn't have a slow cooker, my co-worker Melinda bought me one! My first wedding present- a crock-pot. Yeah! (I made white chicken chili- double on the jalapeños.)
And then I got a rather "fun" email in response to the cook-off results from a little British man I make fun of at work:
"Congratulations, and contrary to the opinions of some, you are clearly more than just the rude comments and pretty face - apparently a cook too. If you can sew and maintain a plastic smile in a group of Army wives bitching about their husbands last career report, you are going to excel at Military Wife School."
Awww. Thanks Gary. You just wait...
