Chilly Chili!

Last Saturday was the 18th Annual Chili Cook-Off! This is one of the biggest - if not the biggest - events in downtown Poultney. And what a blast it was.

Girl Scout Troop 300, who've been wonderful enough to let me hang out with them for the past year, entered this year with their now famous "Chilly Chili" recipe.

Ingredients include:
  • Apples
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Maple Syrup
  • Local Heirloom Tomatoes, Peppers, Herbs, Leeks
  • Spices
  • Liquid Smoke
  • and much more!
I know what you're thinking, I was weary myself, but this turned out to be some great chili!

The girls came up with "Chilly Chili" as a theme so we decorated our booth with gloves, scarves, hats and, of course, snowmen made from white trash bags and leaves!

Although we didn't win, we had a ton of fun and got many ideas for next year. If you're going to be in Poultney next year for the 19th Annual Chili Cook-Off, vote Troop 300!!!
