With a recipe straight from a golf pro, Rinker's Bogey Free Chicken Chili rose to the top of the potluck crop Monday night.
Matt Kelly, in his Monday Night Potluck debut, took first place with Rinker's Bogey Free Chicken Chili (which a quick Google search reveals to be that of Larry Rinker, not his brother Lee or sister Laurie, all of whom apparently were professional golfers at one point or the other).
A quick inspection of the delicious Chicken Chili (read: shoveling it into the mouth by the spoonful) revealed it to be truly bogey free, as it shot an under par 25 to outpace the other competitors.
Miranda Sprague's Dad's Famous Crab Stuffed Mushrooms narrowly claimed second place with 21 points, and will now be truly famous after its inclusion in this well regarded, widely read potluck blog (all seven of my readers will remember you and your crab stuffed mushrooms, Dad).
The A-Team's Porky Pig Balls claimed the final spot on the podium, recording 19 points with its juicy combination of ground ham, ground bacon, and ground beef covered in some type of tangy barbecue sauce (which should really be the three key ingredients to any dish, don't you think?)
