Today is the annual Chili Cookoff here at the radio station. Employees are encouraged to whip up their award winning chili and enter the competition. Everyone gathers in the large conference room for a big group lunch and chili sampling, a judge is brought in to taste each one and a winner is announced at the end of the lunch. I am not a big fan of this. Why? I hate beans. I'm not a bean guy. I think it's more of a texture thing than the taste but I've never aquired an affinity for beans. And what is chili all about?? Beans! Jan even asked me to sample her chili and make any suggestions as to spices or ingredients she might need to add. My first question was: "does it have beans?" Needless to say it did. So, as I write this the smell of chili permeates the air, it smells delicious. My only hope is there will be an entry with no beans or I will be going home hungry.
