Taylor Faculty Chili Cook-Off

5th September 2006

The first (annual?) Taylor University College Chili Cook-Off was held today. This was an orientation event where faculty made a chili dinner for students. Each student was given one vote for whose chili was the best — and guess who won? Yup, yours truly. My bowl of red was voted number one.

I love chili (the spicier the better) and I made a huge vat for the students as well as a special “hot as hell γέεννα� version for those tough enough to try it out. I only entered the more mild version in the contest, since the other stuff is not suitable for mere mortals and I figured people wouldn’t vote for something that causes the skin to peel from the roof of their mouths!

Well, I can’t bask in my greatness too long… classes start tomorrow morning and I need to get my beauty sleep. Cheers.

    Feeding the entire student body chili the day before class begins!

    Congrats on your chili award. This should go in your bio for sure.

    Tyler,
    Congrats on the chili. The Philosophy dept down here has a curry-off every fall. You could drop down for that and try your hand at a wider multi-culturalism.

    Of course, you could also come down for the 3rd annual Religious Studies Halloween party. I intend on winning the costume contest this year, but I don’t have the foggiest idea on how to make an elephant head for a Ganesha costume. I might have to go for Mary Magdelene (the Bible don’t say she was cute…).

    Jim.
