MDB’s Chili Cook-Off!

Every month, my uncle and cousin’s business, The MDB Family, hosts a monthly celebration, and for September, they had a chili cook-off!! My mom works in their HR department, so my brother and I always get to know about these events and indulge in free food and fun games. We grew up running around the office and the warehouse, so we know a majority of the employees there. It’s always nice to poke our heads in every now and then. For this particular cook-off, there were 10 different anonymous entries. Everyone got little cups to taste each one and filled out a ballot with categories such as taste, smell, color, etc.


There were awards for the top three rated chilies and two extra ones for the spiciest on as well as the best vegan one. My mom won second place with her classic chili recipe! I’ve probably only had it once or twice in the last couple of years, but it brought back a lot of memories from when I was younger (I think she used to make it for my brother’s Boy Scouts events)! This whole celebration was lots of fun – I can’t wait to find out what the one for October will be!
