The Agony of Defeat

So as you know I bake - a lot. I thought it would be fun to enter some of my baked goods in the Mid-South Fair. This year the fair moved from Memphis to Southaven, Mississippi, about 25 minutes from my house, which was kind of sucky, but whatever. Last Wednesday I drove down to Southaven with brownies, chocolate marshmallows, brown sugar-almond cookies and blueberry muffins in tow for judging. I hadn't made it back to see the results until last night. Lynsey and I drove down to the 'haven to see the results and eat a Pronto Pup. Sadly, I did not win anything. Some other woman won almost every flipping category. Her stuff didn't even look appetizing at all. Blah.

The fair was really minimized this year since it moved from the fairgrounds to a site not really set up to accommodate a fair with rides and a midway. I still have dreams of attending an actual state fair.But Lynsey and I did get those Pronto Pups and grilled corn and pork rinds and fudge. Justify FullPlus we got to pet some farm animals and who doesn't love to do that really?

Aaah, sorry :( Clearly the judges were out of their minds that day, LOL.

But your treats look and sound wonderful.

Sorry about your loss. Their tastebuds must not have been working.
