the UNfair results are in: Oh the shame. . .
So the results of the 2009 Oregon State Fair are in. . .
This year I entered/placed:
Blueberry Jam- 1st place
Lemon Pound Cake - 1st Place
Ginger Cookies - 2nd Place
Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti - 2nd Place
Blueberry Lemon Scones - 3rd place (WTF???)
Buttermilk Biscuits - 3rd Place (WTF??? are you kidding me???)
Toasted Coconut Marshmallows - 3rd Place
Pecan Pie - 3rd Place (the crust was all messed up, so I feel lucky to have placed at all)
Mixed Nut Bars - Didn't Place at all (bwah?)
Banana Nut Muffins - Didn't Place at all (seriously, am I being punked???)
So, naturally, I feel embarrassed and humiliated, and just want to go spend the rest of the afternoon in bed. But I will be fine. What do they know anyway??? Ultimately I do wish some of them would have placed higher (namely the SCONES, biscuits, and mixed nut bars), but with the nearly ten thousand entries that the home arts division received this year, I guess it is still pretty flattering to have placed eight out of my ten entries.
