Alex and I entered Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies into the Puyallup Fair’s Parent and Child Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest sponsored by C&H Sugar. Except for using the oven, he made the entire recipe.
I took him to the Fair this morning and showed him the ropes of entering the culinary contests. I tried not to be too much of a nerd, but I did utter “stay cool, stay cool” several times under my breath as we watched the judge sample our cookie. (I’ll put it in writing once again….I’ll be happy to pay for his therapy when he is older). There were 28 entries and it looked like we had some good competition.
We took home the 3rd place prize! Alex received an apron, a nice ribbon and a cash prize of $25. All that is great, but I do hope my kids are also learning important life lessons:
Try new things.
Eat lots of cookies.
