Sunday, Today A Lay Around Day.....


Yesterday was the Grand Haven Chili Cook-off, and we didn't win, place, or show... A good enough batch, but they made it clear there would be some new judges, which is their way of saying there would be new winners! It was a beautiful day on the channel between Spring Lake and Lake Michigan, not much wind and sunny. It is always a good time, and quite a crowd showed up. As usual, our 3-1/2 gallons of meaty chili was gone- with quite a few compliments... Today, I'm getting a Papa Murphys bake it yourself pizza, because I may need a dozen of them next month for our mens meeting at the club- if the price is right, and they are good! These chili cook offs are fun, but the lugging, cooking, and clean-up can get old-like me!

What a shame you didn't even get placed - how very dare they! ;)

Dana said...

Sometimes just playing the game is reward enough - especially when spring finally decides to show.

I could do with a jacket spud with a huge dollop of your chilli on top...... if only cos these painkillers tend to 'block one up' LMFAO.......... :)

This has been bought to you via a drug induced state whilst I can type before the downward spiral LOL....

Fanks for your kind thoughts Buffalo, if only you realised how very welcome they have been :)....

DogB-Our friends who ran the spam cook-off won! Dragon spit, our usual competition, took second... I thought ours cooked a little too long- the chunked meat was a little too soft...
Ake- Still, a glorious day by Lake Michigan...
dana- I'm usually more "up" for cook-offs, but it was more work than I was looking for..
marmy- Enjoy the drugs... I could use some right now myself!
Rog- I've been about as useless as I could manage today...

Beth said...

Odat said...

Leighann said...

I do like me some good chili but I must say that I'm glad "chili weather" is OVER!

What did you think of the pizza? I didn't care for Papa Murphy's.

Tanya Kristine said...

didn't win, place or show? do the new judges have tastebuds?

Bina said...

Who DOESN'T like chilli? And ya know, I've never had a Papa Murphy's pizza. Are they really that good? I guess I'll have to try it one day.

Lynda said...

I enjoy those Papa Murphy pizzas. What did you think of it?

buffalodickdy said...

beth- I have made better, and I tasted the top two- they won, fair and square...
odat- Papa Murphys! Never had theirs, but we liked the crust and the sauce! Had to drain a bit of grease off, but really, not too bad!
mona- Dominos' started in Michigan, where I live- God, I wish I could make you a pizza...
leighann- added pepperoni and parmesean- I've had worse!
tanya- I love your loyalty, but I could have done better!
bina- It wasn't bad... Of course, once the manager knew I knew her sister and brother-in-law, things went pretty good!
Lynda- On a scale of 1-10, I would give it a strong 7-1/2.. Not bad at all!

Real Live Lesbian said...

Good lookin' pizza there...and I'm with you...all that work sure does get old!

Kayla said...

Hi Buffalo!
I can't imagine 31/2 GALLONS of chili. I'll bet it was quite "windy" later on....Ha

Jeff B said...

Sorry the judging didn't go your way, but it sounds like the chili was well received by the participants anyway.

buffalodickdy said...

R.L.L.- I never bought a heat and eat pizza, but it really wasn't too bad at all!
kayla- How good to hear from you! 3-4 gallons is pretty easy, but 6 or 7 gets a little tricky!
jeff- Can't win'em all.. At least friends took 1st & 2nd!

Stacey Huston said...

Just had to stop in and say I love the name of your blog,.. Just my opinion. ;-)

pinknest said...

Urban Vegan said...

Cooking is fun--but lugging and cleaning? Fugghedaboudit.

buffalodickdy said...

stacey- Stop by anytime- and bring that opinion!
Pink- It's not a bath house, you NY chick! Most of these guys drink, fart, drink, eat, drink, tell jokes, drink- well, you get the picture...
UrbanV- And guess what? We are doing another one Saturday...Just shoot me now..

Akelamalu said...
