This past Wednesday, WGHS held their third annual Chili and Soup Cook-Off, and a couple of participants were eager to share how it went.

WGHS's Chili and Soup Cook-Off took place this past Wednesday during teachers' respective lunch blocks. The gathering was run by Mrs. Shelnutt and Mrs. Whitehurst. During the block, teachers came in and experienced a variety of different flavors of chili and soup and voted for their favorite in the two categories.
Mrs. Lorianne Roberts stated, “I made a Twisted Taco Soup. I think it’s a really good football Saturday type of soup—maybe a Christmas party kind of soup. It’s a comfy favorite for our family.” She also seemed to really enjoy the team bonding that came with the competitive aspect of the gathering. It was really hard to decide, because everything that I tasted was really, really good. We love gathering as co-workers, for sure, and it was a lot of fun. But I was so torn between the Brunswick stew and the pumpkin spice; the pumpkin spice was so good, but I think overall the Brunswick stew was my winner."
Mrs. Roberts is a soup person, her favorite being chicken and dumplings. “I’m kind of picky with my chili. I only eat certain ones; I’m kind of a chili snob. I definitely prefer soup, either chicken and dumplings or my taco soup, because I make it all the time.”
One chef who placed second in the soup competition, Mrs. Patty Baker, said, “I love to cook, and I love looking up new recipes and trying them.” But this isn’t Mrs. Baker’s first time participating; she states, “I'm pretty much a pro.” The cook-off seems to be well liked amongst all of the teachers; she concludes, “The competition aspect is fun; I like being around my coworkers. My favorite chili was Aunt Michelle's Chili, and I loved the crab and corn bisque; it was so good.”
Congratulations to all of the winners in the cook-off! In first place for chili’s, Mrs. Seal; in second place, Mrs. Whitehurst; and finally, in third place, Mrs. Hagler. First place for soups, Mrs. Watson; second place, Mrs. Baker; and third place, Mrs. Kitchens! Overall, the gathering seems to have gone smoothly—a friendly competition full of team bonding. Congratulations once again to the winners.
