They ate all my chili but didn't vote for it. Oh we'll...
I learned a ton of stuff about chili. There's two basic types, middle of the road, and wild concoction.
Mine was among the latter. Very middle ended up winning.
Someone smoked their own meat for theirs, wow that good.
Mine wasn't that spicy at all, but it was still to much for the voters. A few people liked it and I got some compliments, but still to hot.
Ill be going in a new direction from now on. I'm going to make another batch when I finish off what I have.
Two lessons, very important, they all said it.
1-you start out with something in mind and it ends up very different.
2- there is no right or wrong. If people eat it then its a success.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.
