Chili Cook-Off @ Mt. Lebanon Winterfest

So we are in this sort of dreary slump of a Pittsburgh winter – football season has ended (and earlier than usual).  The weather is grey, not so cold, but not BBQ weather yet.  Pittsbughers have cabin fever.  I made the mistake of trying to stop at Trader Joe’s last Saturday at 3:00pm.  The rest of Pittsburgh – eager to escape from their homes also decided to grocery shop at that time.  I made it through 1 aisle – saw an open cash register and made an escape.  But never feat Pittsburgh – we will make it through the grey days of winter by eating a feast!

Fish Fry season has started.  Don’t forget the Carnegie Library in East Liberty is holding a Mac & Cheese Cook-Off on Saturday.  And it gets better – Mt. Lebanon is hosting a huge Chili Cook-off – The Fire and Icing Festival which includes a  Mt. Lebanon Fire Dept vs Mt. Lebanon Police Dept in a chili challenge
