We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather for the 3rd Annual McGaha "No Beans" Chili Cook Off. This is my favorite event of the year. Good friends, Great food, and sitting in lawn chairs on our front lawn....what more could a girl want.
(Disclaimer: There is a TON of pictures)
This year Shad was a little behind schedule because he had to run into work early that morning and then coach a soccer game. So we started at 1:00pm and rounded it up around 9:00pm. We had 5 Chili entries this year. They were all REALLY REALLY good.
Shad and I thought it would be fun to have a couple of judges: John Presson, Conrad Cooper, and Frank Schmidt were the lucky guys. Well it turned out to be not as great an idea as we thought...it is really awkward for Shad to win his own chili cook off. BOY was that Chili YUMMY!!!

The turn out was incredible. I know the beautiful weather had alot to do with is and we so enjoyed visiting with everyone. We were also really lucky that everyone came bearing goodies and snacks. We had 2 8ft tables running over with food.
