Another Successful Chili Cook Off in Tartan Hills Village
For the third straight year, Tartan Hills Village HOA sponsored a chili cook off in Braemar. Returning 2013 Chili Cook Off Champ Brian Anderson brought his fiery chili and competed against Katie Quick’s chili, represented by husband Frank Quick.
There wasn’t just chili to eat. Brian was kind enough to bring some great cornbread made with cream corn which was a perfect accompaniment to his tamed down, but still hot chili. And Tartan Hills Village HOA had hot dogs, hamburgers, pulled pork and even BBQ chili supplied by Matt Burrough, owner of Wild About BBQ. Matt set up in the front of the clubhouse and served all of our guest with a smile.
Kara Branham, owner of Drama Mama Cakes supplied chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. You know you’re eating a good cupcake when you can’t figure out if the cake or the icing is better. YUM!
We mixed, mingled, ate BBQ and tasted the chilis. The kids were happy to get their faces painted. We saw Iron Man, camo, flowers, butterflies and kitty cats. Frank Quick was the first adult to step up and get a fire-breathing dragon his arm. Very appropriate for a chili cook off.
At the end of the day, the votes were tallied and Katie Quick’s chili had won. Frank accepted the trophy and $100 VISA Gift Card on her behalf as she had a commitment to attend a charity walk. Each chili contestant received an apron for participating, commemorating the event. And a lucky attendee got the last apron as a door prize.
Congrats to our winner and thanks to all who attended. It was great to see some new faces and people from all over Braemar. We’re looking forward to the 4th Annual Tartan Hills Village Sponsored Chili Cook Off next October.
