A day at the beach




I have not been to the CT or RI beach ever in the winter.... How can that be in 45 years, I have not done this?  When I was younger, I spent a lot of time sitting on the beach.  My parents took us camping in RI all the time and we spent a lot of time playing in the ocean.  As a teenager and my early 20's I also spent a lot of time baking my skin to the point of a sunburn.  I was scolded yesterday at my annual checkup at the Dr for doing this and warned not to do it any more.  Guilty as charged..... I still sit in the sun at the NY house lake.  I do miss the ocean though and it was quite fun to go there when it was not crowded except for the gulls.

Annual Chili Cookoff

This Saturday, our church held the annual chili contest cook off.  Three years ago I went as just a patron to try the chili's and of course socialize.  Last year I entered my very first chili, I didn't win and wasn't even sure where I placed.  This year I entered again, there were 29 in total chili's.  This was the largest crown of people I have ever seen there, they even had to go get more tables.  What a great time and if you want to know who won, keep reading!!

And Guess Who Won!!!!

ME!!!!!!!!!!!

I beat last years Champion Sandy Lisella!!  Boy were we going at it all week on FB about who was going to take the other one down.  All in good fun mind you but I never in my wildest dreams thought I would win.  I don't like chili, never made it but once before for last years chili cookoff.  Mine was a white chicken chili with cheese and other "secret" ingredients.  I searched the internet for recipes and combinded two and made it my own.  I 've been asked to share the recipe,  I think I will hold off on that, I may win again!!
