The winner is… January 15, 2008

BedheadThere weren’t a lot of votes cast in deciding the winner of the chili cook-off. Maybe everyone got bogged down – like I have been – with getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. Here’s the weird thing: out of all of the entries, all of the votes were split between only *two* people. A last minute vote swung the results in favor of Adam from BedHeadBlog and his Bratwurst Chili. Congrats! He is going to get a copy of Chili Nation by Jane and Michael Stern.

I am also going to be sending a cookbook to the runner-up…Michelle from Je Mange le Ville and her Working Person’s Green Chili Bowl. She’ll be getting a copy of Homegrown Pure and Simple. It’s a lovely cookbook with lots of seasonal ingredients and recipes.

Thanks to everyone for taking part in the RWT Chili Cook-off!

perhaps you could be less enthused about adam winning?
yeah, meat. no wonder you framed it in terms of “one last minute vote” and then quickly heaped praise of some green chile stuff.
c’mon, tami. be fair — not predictable.

adam has entered several “challenges” on this blog and has never won. there is nothing predictable about the winner of this contest. i did not even vote myself…and those who know me know i would not be unfair.
if you take issue with something on this blog, you can email me through the link on the blog…or at least have the gumption to include your own website/blog/email address.
any further discussion about this on this post will be deleted.

A) I’m not saying you “rigged it” — I’m saying you were bummed he won, and you seriously let it show. Letting it show wasn’t cool, esp. to Adam.
B) I’ve tried to email you once before, but didn’t get a response — I know you’re busy, so no worries there. Just decided to post this time, instead.

Congrats to Adam. Thanks for hosting, Tami! And, sorry for not voting – my catering gig took me away from any routine I had for weeks! :) How’d you like our little snow shower?
