Fair Life – August 14th: 4-H Cook This!

Fair Life, is a featured series I’m writing on the 2012 Iowa State Fair. I’m going to try to post something different each day I’m at the fair that features some behind-the-scenes looks at different aspects of the state fair along with factual information.

Today I’m competing in the Iowa 4-H Cook This! Culinary Challenge. Come see me cook! I will post updates tonight about how I did!

We are planning on cooking a stir fry with some meat and sweet & sour sauce. For a dessert, we are making ice cream and including an iowa grown fruit, another fruit, and cherries. Also we are going to be making a fruit sauce to put over the chosen fruit.

I’ll take some photos and post them up later tonight along with my updates!


So we didn’t get 1st…. nor 2nd…. nor 3rd… but we got 4th (aka 4th place)!!!! 🙂

We knew we weren’t going to win, but we were the team that had the most fun! 🙂

Photos will be up soonish!
