In all three categories she won 2nd place overall!  She was very excited, and got a WalMart gift card to boot!

When all was said and done, we did the right thing with the remains.  The goats and the chickens got the spoils... 

They loved the crushed up rice crispy/graham crackers.

The proud winner with her sculpture.

the babies.  They are not interested in the sculpture.  Only their baby chick feed!
The spoils...

Congratulations, Emily! You must be a better cook than me. My goats wouldn't eat the Rice Krispy Treats that I made!

About Me
I'm married with 3 children. I live on 7 acres with chickens, goats, and dogs. Being a city girl and living and traveling all over the world, this lifestyle is a new adventure for me. I'm an RN and I work at the local hospital in town. I love my job, and love my community! UPDATE: We have just recently relocated to the south! My husband was relocated to Marietta, GA. We are now in the suburbs, and I am embracing our new lifestyle with open arms!
My favorite things to cook
I recently had to go Gluten Free and low sugar. This is actually a good thing for my cooking progression! I no longer buy any processed or packaged products. I make just about everything from scratch! I love soups and international foods! I absolutely love experimenting with spices and fresh herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking with family and friends. I always give my kids jobs in the kitchen, it helps me and also helps them learn how to chop, dice, zest, puree, braise, etc... And nothing is more fun than having a friend visit, and cooking a meal together while we drink wine, and catch up on lost time!
My cooking triumphs
Creating my own recipes! I recently started doing this. I will research a food, look at several other recipes, and combine and moderate to my own taste. Check out my recipe box to see some!
My cooking tragedies
There have been so many. The family joke is my burnt bread. I burn the rolls/bread for every Christmas and Thanksgiving!!! My friend and I made our first T-giving turkey and left the plastic bag-o-guts in the turkey! And of course, there's the time that I mistakently added 1 cup of salt instead of sugar in a cookie recipe!
