Off To The Rodeo

"Never be the first to arrive at a part or the last to go home, and never, ever be both."

-David Brown

We had chili for dinner last night (Friday). Six different kinds of chili to be exact, you see, we had dinner at the annual Castro Valley Rotary Club's chili cook-off. The chili cook-off is the official beginning for the weekend festivities that celebrate another year of the Rowell Ranch Rodeo, held in Castro Valley. Today (Saturday) there will be a parade on Castro Valley boulevard, with school bands, floats, and of course a few local celebrities and politicians. In past years we saw among others, a current Miss California, Jennifer Glover, who was once a resident of Castro Valley. For a sleepy little town, with only two exits off the freeway, they sure can party. :) As for our choice for the best chili of the cook-off, we chose the Sterlent Credit Union's entry...yummmmmmmm! See you tomorrow with scenes from a parade! :)

That looks so good! But, it feels quite odd to be craving chili, cheese, and cornbread at 8am. :-)

I would love to be tasting all that good chili with y'all. I just hope you did not have a long car ride home afterwards, LOL!
