Excitement! Joy! Wonder! Awe! Aww....
I entered a recipe contest the other day over at Noble Pig. Cathy is looking for the best Super Bowl recipe. Aside from the prize being a $250 Sam's Club gift card, I was urged to enter because of my pride in creating my own recipe.
I hurriedly sent off my Corn Chowder recipe and then immediately regretted it. I've been reading numerous food and recipe blogs the last few days and have felt greatly inferior to all the great cooks sharing their talents on the net, although I've also felt completely inspired. (I've drooled a lot, too.) Anyhow, today I saw Noble Pig's latest post title, "The Finalists!" on my side bar. I clicked on the link to see what type of recipes had been selected. You can't even imagine my surprise when I saw my very own recipe there in the list of finalists! (Especially when I read that she had received over 1000 entries!) Luckily she decided to go for the recipes that used easy-to-find ingredients and sounded simple to prepare, two things I strive for in all my cooking.
Right now, I don't even care if I win. I can't tell you how far this goes in validation for me! Also, I hope she posts all the finalist recipes, because altogether sound like an awesome party menu!
