Judging a Chili Cook-Off

So, yesterday, I had the honor of being a celebrity judge for the Annual MidAmerican Energy Chili Cook-Off.

It was a great time…and I think I found my second calling…cook-off judge. So much good chili…much props to Team Khaki…and congrats to Wayne and his Garbanzo Bean dish that ended up being our overall winner.

Thanks to MidAmerican Energy for a great time…and I’m now a fan of having 10+ different chilis before 10:30 in the morning! Thank you to Chad & Darla!
