First Fair Day

Rachel, Grace, and Zachary all participated in the 4H kitchen activites on Friday.  There are several categories in which you can compete. Rachel (no pictures :(...) and Grace both participated in the bread baking activity. They must bring all supplies and ingredients to the 4H kitchen and, well..., make bread. You are judged on preparation techniques, cleanliness practices, nutritional values and costs associated with the food/meal.
Rachel made Oatmeal Molasses Bread and received a blue ribbon! This recipe is WONDERFUL! You should definitely try it!

 Grace made a loaf of whole wheat bread. She had a couple of...challenges -measuring technique- but the bread tasted wonderful, and she got some great pointers! She received a red ribbon and LOTS of encouragement to keep up the good work! 
Good Job, Grace!

Zachary participated in a "Quick to Fix Meals" category. He prepared our family's standard breakfast of....

and smoothies.
I don't think he's licking his fingers! :)

He was required to set the table andserve the judge. I'm sure he was a charming host!
 He then cleaned up the kitchen and had an interview w/ the judge about nutritional value of the meal he served, and cost etc....(of which he needs to show improvement in his knowlege....)
He received a blue ribbon! Good Job, Z!

Rachel, Joshua and James will be in the kitchen on Monday and more pictures will be forthcoming. 
If you're in the area, come on out to the Clark County Fair!


  1. This is awesome, Keri! They have such sweet smiles. Great Job, Everyone on the ribbons. I wish I had been a judge! The recipes sound delicious.

  2. Way to go, kids! Looks like they are all seasoned veterans in the kitchen. I'm always up for a new bread recipe, so I think I'll try it. Thanks!
