demonstrate and compete at the Kenmore Live Studio in Chicago, Mommy Bloggers vs. Foodie Bloggers. She was 1 of 3 mommy bloggers chosen to compete. One of the top chef judges was from La Cordon Bleu and he loved the pasta dish she made. It was such a fun night filled with great recipes that involved 3 major veggies. Cauliflower, spinich & carrots were to be picked from to use in your recipe. Steph chose spinich for her lemon pasta dish. The concept was to get kids to eat more veggies. The audience got to sample each dish. I can honestly say, I did enjoy all the dishes. The Foody bloggers did end up winning the competion, but it was close.

I received this special paperweight from my sister. It reminds me of our time we spent in Florida on the beach. I have it on my desk at work to dream about the next time we are together. I had been wanting a new Blog design, so Steph is having Beth design something for me. I have a few ideas and this paperweight is a hint of what's to come. My blog will be under construction, so stay tuned.Have you ever had one of those birthday celebrations that seem to drag out for days? Mine started July 30th and ended Aug. 3. It started with the Fair (pictures to come), Girls night with Key Lime pie, Olive Garden, DQ pecan pie blizzard cake, and this delightful fudge cake that Jack wanted to dive in to. This apron represents my six grand kids, plus my grand-dog. Noah, Carter, Gray, Abby, Ivy, Jack & Sophie.
Abby & Jack gave me a really cute children's cookbook from one of my favorite cooks, Paula Deen, along with the apron. I plan on opening up this book and letting the grand kids cook for me. I will be posting more birthday celebration pictures soon. I have lots of fun pictures from our trip to the Fair. The highlight for me at the Fair was the Kenny Ahern show and how he opened his show by coming over to sit on my lap....very unexpected. It's almost like he knew it was my Birthday and I needed a big laugh....
Stay tuned for more birthday pictures.....and a new blog look.
