We enjoyed Calvary Baptist Church's candlelight ceremony following the communion service. We all needed to give a word of thanks for something in 2008.
The church also sponsored a chili bake-off for New Year's Eve. Much to my delight, I won the all-around division with a new recipe, Microwave Mexican Chili. This was my second win in a cooking contest, the first being the first place winner in a Latino cooking contest in Reading, PA. There as the lone non-Latino entrant I won with my Mexican Pozole.
