Happy Fall Y'all!
Hope you've had a chance to enjoy the fall days that we are having. Such beautiful weather, here in Texas!This year, 4-H has switched gears in their presentation and their categories for the 4-H Food Show! The boys had to retrieve their "individual" calorie needs at the website - www.choosemyplate.gov website and study the info there.
The theme for this year's Food Show is "Healthy Holidays" - objective is to pick a classic dish and put a healthy twist to it along with picking out a Holiday to serve it during... the categories are: Grain, Vegetables & Fruit, Dairy and Protein. Aric prepared a "Patriotic Picnic Club" celebrating July 4th and Alex mixed up a "Merry Berry Salad" to be served at Christmas (note: both boys HATED the hats... but wore them anyways...) I'll post recipes for my weekly Recipe Swaps soon!
We had a very "young" group this year - lots of newbies!
The boys did well and will be competing at District Food Show in Vernon on Nov. 10.
Thanks for stopping by - remember to hug the ones you love the most, until next time...
