I am thrilled!!!

I just received notification that I am a finalist in Cooks Country monthly recipe contest.

Here's what happened..........sister and I are always cooking up something when we are together. And when niece is in the mix it's even better. So sister and I are going thru some of our favorite magazines, Cook's Illustrated, Cook's Country. These are produced by one of my favorite cooking shows, America's Test Kitchen which is shown on your local PBS station.

Anyway sister and I are going thru the mags and I see that Cook's Country has a monthly recipe contest. And the one that caught my eye was that they were asking for your best summer salad recipe. Heck I got one of those. Remember the one I posted on PBE with the cantaloupe? I'm gonna enter that. Oh my I see the deadline is in just a few days. Hop on sisters computer and send that tasty treat to the address provided.

So this a.m. I get an email from the sister publication America's Test Kitchen that I am a finalist in their monthly recipe contest with the subject being your best summer salad. If you care to take a peek here this is what I submitted on our food blog PBE.

I would love to be known and/or published for my photographs but this is kinda fun and exciting.

Being that this is a summer salad food item, I am assuming this won't be published until May or June. Thank you sister for the encouragement. When I find out I'll let y'all know so.........stay tuna'd!!!
