Foul Bean: What's up with chili cook-off Entry names

I don’t think I’ll ever volunteer to judge green chili again. Not because it doesn’t taste good (it tastes great) but perhaps because of how it looks… 22 times over. I’ll stick with red. Another thing I don’t get is why contestants insist on naming their prized bowl after things that trigger gag reflex. It appears many of them try to blow up just how hot their stuff is but in all reality don’t they know chili judges are told to pick something balanced with the right spice. I can’t post pics of many of the tents at the DC101 Chili Cook-Off but I’ve shared a couple below. Despite the names RFK smelled amazing!

READ THIS: Buckley’s Story 

A while back I profiled Ingrid King, a local feline master teacher who did Reiki on my dear Atticus. I was so excited to see King’s new book because it’s something that as one reviewer described should be ‘A “must” for everyone who has ever loved a pet’. The story of her beautiful cat Buckley leads us through how our pets teach us to open our hearts to the world.  It reveals lessons learned through the life and eventual death of a beloved friend.
