Yes, my dear friends...the Chili Cook-0ff is just a month away...maybe less if you arrive sooner or a few days more if you get there later. I can feel it, I can taste it and soon I will experience it :)
Ordinarily at this time I remind you to start saving your milk jugs so you can bring them with you,,,,full, frozen or empty...your call. If you are new to my blog, I go into detail as to why on the following posts.
CASI Chili Cook-off Questions - Part 1
CASI Chili Cook-off Questions - Part 2
This year I have added a new twist as I have been bringing empty laundry detergent bottles for two years now and found them to work great when you wash your hands and they waste little water...a very important factor in the desert.
I am not endorsing this particular brand but it is the one I use. See that little red button? You press it and the water comes out and as soon as you release it, the water is shut off. The plastic cap protects it from the dust and from bugs wanting a drink. These containers are sturdier than milk jugs. Last year I had two takers but only one container.
BTW the wooden table holds them very nicely. Have seen them hold up to six gallon containers.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
