The 12th Annual MDA Firefighters Chili Challenge was this past Sunday at the Hyannis Resort and Conference Center. I had the pleasure of attending with my 5 year old daugther. My husband was there with his firehouse, Joint Base Cape Cod, and while they didn’t win I still think theirs was the best. Of course I may be a little bias here seeing as this is my hubby’s family recipe. The People’s Choice winner was Wareham. Second place went to Mashpee and Third Place was Hyannis. Blackstone Firehouse won for the best booth display. The Chef’s Cup winner was Yarmouth, second place was Mashpee and third place was Plymouth. MDA and the local firefighters put on a good show. The chili was hot and drinks served cold. Orleans won for hottest and it certainly was. I had just a little taste and OH Boy that was one HOT chili. My mouth was on fire. My daugther and i also enjoyed the live band that was playing. Good times for a good cause. The proceeds benefit the families in our community fighting the effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and similar life-threatening diseases. See you again next year.
