October 7-17 is Georgia National Fair time. Some people love the rides, the animals or the fair food, but I love the Georgia Living and Heritage Hall Programs. This includes competitions ranging from quilting to cooking and just about anything in between.
Four-H clubs from different schools decorate scarecrows. Some of them are very creative.
This is the third year I have participated in the cooking competion. I did not win the first year, but last year I won 3rd place in the "Grits" competion. I was hooked. I year I have a busier schedule and could not participate in as many competions. The first one I entered was the BBQ Chicken contest. I won 3rd place. there were about 18-20 competitors. My recipe is called "Sweet and Spicy aprocot Glazed Chicken". If you have a fair near you and love to cook, check out the culinary competions. You just might win.
