GEMS held a chili cook off fundraiser yesterday at the old Rodes Park. We had a lot of people show up, even Wai-gong. The girls did a good job and mommy got to make a crock pot of chili to try. I made a non-traditional chili called chicken hominy chili. It was pretty good, but did not win. They also sold cake pops, chocolate covered strawberries from Melting Pot, drinks, and even TUMS. It will be interesting to see how much money was raised...hopefully enough for a good chunk to go towards their camping trip.
