My friend's daughter is in Girl Scout's and they had their first annual Chili Cook-off on Saturday. My friend needed contestants and since I'm a
sucker nice person I said I would do it. Mind you I have only made chili a couple of times in my life.
As luck would have it when I was home at my mom's my bother made this great low fat vegetarian chili.I got the recipe from him and made it for the first time saturday. Amazingly I won first place in the non-traditional category! My mom's first question when I told her was "Were there other entries in that category?" Yes, there were 5 other non-traditional chili's (meaning using a protein source other than beef).
Here's my booth
And my trophy
Had fun, an won a nice cash prize as well.
On the band front I'm not really feeling like a winner these days. I've lost focus and having trouble getting back on track. I lost my pedometer and it's gone down hill from there. Stopped loggin my food and exercise. Stopped making the best food choices. BLECH!
But, this is a new day, and time to get back on the bandwagon. I'm also participating in the "Let The Weight Fall Off" Challenge that Sandra at http://thinkitdoitliveit.blogspot.com/ is running. Just what I need to get me re-started.
