A journey of cooking vegan food for my family.

Winner winner, tofu dinner or pot pie dinner!!!!!

I entered a recipe contest at a local gourmet grocery store here.  Josh brought home a business card one day from the store and said I should enter for fun.  I thought, why not?  Never in a million years thinking I would have a chance. It is a very omni contest.  This past Thursday I recieve an email letting me know that out of 300 entries, I am a finalist.  What?!?!  I was shocked and happy.  They said I need to make my recipe again, bring 4 copies of it printed for the judges and enough to serve 6 people.  Saturday rolls around which is the day of the contest.  I wake up, make my pie crust and start to cook, so it can sit all day and let the flavors mesh.  By the way, the recipe I submitted was a roasted hatch chile pot pie.  When we arrived at the store that afternoon, there were 12 finalists all together.  We each waited for the judges to try our food, mingled a bit and then the announcements came.  3rd place……Krys.  Yes, me.  I was the only vegan recipe submitted and I placed 3rd.  Woo hoo!  The judges said they really liked it and couldn’t believe it was vegan.  I won a gift certificate, a prize basket, my recipe published in their cookbook, and of course bragging rights. 

Arthur turned 4 on Friday.  I can’t believe it.  He is such a sweet boy.  He loves superheroes.  So, I made him a Batman cake.  Batman goes vegan! 

Well, it is Labor Day weekend for us living in the states.  Which means a nice relaxing 3 day weekend.  I am planning on making sweet potato flautas for our Labor Day treat and relaxing with my family.  Hope you each have a lovely weekend.

peas and love….
Krys and the boys
