Our parish Chili Cook-Off is coming up soon, on February 28. I have been told that this is a great, fun parish event. [May I take a moment to brag? I once won first prize at a Fort Wayne Celebrity Soup Cook- Off. The organizers ran low on celebrities and invited me. I proceeded to advertise in the parish bulletin. Despite my lack of celebrity and my very meager cooking skills, I had dozens of parishioners dropping in to vote for my soup.] Parish cooks: Fear not. My competition days are over. Join us on February 28.
