Wordful Wednesday - Soup Cookoff and Bingo

Time is drawing near for camping season to be over. Just two official weeks left and we'll be done till next April. Last weekend at camp the activities included a soup cookoff, Bingo, and a Sweetest Day Dance.



There were eight entries in the soup cookoff. So glad I wasn't a judge cause they were all good. There was chili, chicken noodle, cheeseburger, taco, vegetable, and cheese soups.


My husband made chili. He won't give his secret recipe away but he combines deer meet with hamburger. There was a three-way tie for first place and he was one of the winners.


Everyone paid a minimal amount to taste all the soups. I tried a sample of all eight and got full quickly. This is Sue, one of our camping buddies.


Two of my kids, Emma and Logan, played Bingo with me. Emma won $5 from one of the games.


Logan looks like he's concentrating reeaall hard.

I didn't get pictures of the Sweetest Day Dance and didn't get to stay the whole time because I had to work that night. Thanks to some campground friends and the band, I was reminded numerous times that I didn't get to stay and play because I had to work.

All of the soups were yummy! And bingo was fun. I have been playing bingo for oh lets see probably 25 years and this was my first jackpot win. Yeah me. I just wish camping season wasn't almost over, so what are we gonna do this winter? Hotels, Fun City? Hmmm.
