Natchez Chili Cook Off, 2011

We should do something exciting, after all it is Saturday again. I have one more post for my Charleston trip but I thought I would take a break this weekend and post it next Saturday instead.


Every fall, Natchez holds a chili cook-off by the river and it is a small event but fun to go to. John was in Florida so I went with my friends, Debjani and Keka. I will never forget last year's event because that was when my mom passed out from having a very low blood pressure and then, we ended up going to the hospital. She was on prescribed blood pressure pills then and I had given her one in the morning. It turned out that she did not need them and has not taken any since then.



I took this sign on my way to the event.


It is also time for Pink Saturday so let me show you this pink Limoges Coronet Rose-LC teapot and demitasse cups and saucers. I also have some bowls. We are getting ready to get our floors replaced (got the insurance money, Yipee!!) and before they could move the cabinets, I had to empty them. It will be a lot of work because you know, I have too much stuff. I forgot all about this set and saw it as I was emptying the TV cabinet, lol. Before I put it in a bin and move it to the garage, I took pictures to show you. I even have the label for the bin all ready. I think the pink shade of this is very sweet. The set has gold borders.


Go visit Beverly's blog at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ if you want to see more lovely pinks. Ok, here are more pictures from the Chili Cookout.


Debjani and I were enjoying our chilis.
The weather was perfect with beautiful clear blue skies.







There were activities for kids too.



This must have been the booth with the venison chili.



For $5, we were given a small cup and spoon and we could go to any or all of the booths and taste their chili. We were also given a ticket to vote for which we thought tasted the best. They all tasted the same to me so I gave my ticket to Debjani, lol.

The Old South Traading Post is where we usually bring visitors to buy souvenirs.



There was a pretty good turnout.





























I would also like to link with The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday at http://thetablescaper.blogspot.com/


Thank you so much for stopping by and thanks to all our hostesses.
