Thanks to a tip from my good buddy Elizabeth Saloka, I've entered into the world of competitive hotdish, joining the throngs of old ladies across the country who duke it out for top honors at things like State Fairs and, well, State Fairs.
BUT, I am not alone in my quest for victory, I am joined by yet another good buddy—and an excellent Lady of her own kitchen, Beth Kaufman. Thankfully the competition does seem pretty low-key, and it's being held at Grain Belt Studios so really, there's no way this could be less than super fun.
To prepare, I have done some affirmations that the outcome of this competition doesn't impact my self worth. It's gonna be interesting to see if I can pull that off considering my competitive style tends to fall on the side of "hey, I'm super chill about this whole thing and I really don't care if I win, but now that you're all judging my skills in comparison to others I REALLY WANT TO WIN SO GIVE ME THAT RIBBON."
Ok, so if you're around tomorrow come out to the event - details below, and if you're not around, stay posted for the results!
