Competitive Cooking Week
Thanks for visiting everyone from Be Bop A Blog Hop!
This weekend, both my husband and myself will be competing in 2 cooking events! I have entered into a cake competition that will benefit the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a program through our local chapter of the United Way. It is a program that supports early literacy. You can sign any child ages birth to 5 years up for this program. The child receives a free book every month up to their 5th birthday.
Both of my children have taken part in this program. I think it is wonderful! The books the children receive are of the highest quality, so I am really happy to take part in this benefit.
I have chosen to create a cake depicting Captain Underpants! This was my son's suggestion and I think it will be a fun cake to make. I will be taking pictures and posting more about the cake later this week. The competition is not until Saturday.
My husband's event is a BBQ cook off. He and his friend Morgan will be competing both Friday and Saturday. Friday night, is a chicken wing cook off. The crowd will get to pick the winners for this portion of the event. Then Saturday is ribs and butts, with BBQ judges selecting the winners. I will be sharing pictures of both events and writing posts about each. But until then, we are knee deep in getting everything ready! Wish us luck!!
