As [livejournal.com profile] nineweaving will tell you, that headline is about as unlikely as [livejournal.com profile] negothick wins Olympic medal. Nevertheless, it is not an alternative fact. It is the truth.

The odds were somewhat in my favor: it was a contest for vegetarian chili at Temple Bnai Israel. There were only 6 entries, and it was decided by popular vote. Only two of the cooks were themselves vegetarians, which gave us a certain advantage. My chili was quite flavorful, if I do say so myself--and it was among the mildest, too. A two-year-old in attendance fell in love with it, as did his mom, who kept bringing him over so he could hold out his little cup for more. I wish I had a picture. The secret might have been the mole spices, cocoa powder and cinnamon, especially the bit of cinnamon I sprinked in at the end that perfumed the air.

I doubt that this marks my entrance into the world of cooking contests, but it was fun! Next year, I'm thinking roasted veggies in the chili.
