More Fair News

Well, last night my daughter and I entered 3 loaves of our bread in the Fleischmann's bread contest. Unfortunately, we did not win. But that is ok. Truly, the ones who did had phenomenal bread. The first place prize went to a young lady with some delicious bagels. I have never attempted bagels because they look complicated, so my hat is off to her. Second place went her mother who baked a delicious blueberry stuffed loaf, yummy. And third place to me was the most fantastic. The young man made....Pimento cheese and collard green bread. Sounds absolutely awful. I was hesitant to try some. However, it was absolutely fantastic. After the first bite I wanted to hog the whole loaf and take it home. Really folks this was GOOD bread. I never would have thought to put collards and pimento cheese into bread together. So we lost to some really phenomenal bread. Now, we have loads of bread at home since we baked 7 loaves yesterday so that we would have the best loaves possible to take with us. Tonight is pie night, so we will see how that goes. Blessings from the farm, Kat

Awwwwh, but it does sound as if you had some stiff competition and what a wonderful learning experience :o) The young mans bread doesn't sound good and I certainly would never have thought of collard greens in bread nor pimentos for that fact either.

Saying a prayer for you ladies and your pies. What kind of pies are you taking?
My absolute favorite pie is cherry, then pumpking( of course homemade from scratch, no store bought fillings-YUCK!-
Good luck, it sure sounds fun!
Blessings for your day,

It was stiff competition all week. It has been fun though. I took a Mint Kentucky Derby Pie and a Pear Granola Pie. Yep, the bread sounded awful, but it really was yummy. Never would have thought it. Kudos to his creativity and success in pulling off something I don't think anyone would have attempted. It truly deserved the blue ribbon. Blessings, Kat
