If you are a regular around here, then you know that Eloise won 1st place in a parish(county) wide cook-off.
On Thursday, we packed up the car and headed to Houma for the final round.
The above picture was just one of the lines of students waiting to register their dish.
Above is a pic of Eloise surrounded by a few of the many contestants. As you can see, most of the participants from the 14 other parishes were seasoned veterans. We learned that 4-H is a club that Eloise can participate in all the way through college.
After placing her jars of Bisque by her number, Eloise went to another table to turn in her
"Solar Pizza Box Oven"
for the recycling part of the competition.
Eloise took a group pic with the other representatives from our parish.
I do not recall the results for three of the reps.
The girl to the far right took home a 1st place ribbon for her category (crab).
Even though she didn't place, Eloise received a red ribbon for her category (shrimp).
I have to admit that we were a little bit crest fallen by the results, but after a game of miniature golf, a delicious meal, and a slice of cheese cake, all was forgotten.......
.....We're already planning for next year....
LOOK OUT HOUMA HERE WE COME!
