Holy Peach!

All I have to say is that it is a good thing, nay, a fantastic thing, that the Beeton Fall Fair is held in a community centre with a barn sized door. Otherwise, I don't know how on earth I would get my huge, first place prize winning, head outside!

That's correct, you read right, I won my FIRST blue ribbon at a county fair! YAY for me!

The Beach Bake Off of last weekend was nothing like Beeton. There were hundreds of entries in the baking section - cookies, cakes, pies, name it, it was there. I won, not only in category 27, peach pie, but the overall pie prize.

It was also much more official. You had to deliver your wrapped pie to the judging area by 11:30, and following my one hour to make, one hour to bake and two hour to cool rule I made it with 23 minutes to spare, and then it was placed in a glass case, as pie should be, until the judging began.

The fair is on all weekend and the baked goods will be there until Saturday afternoon, so if you fancy a trip to the country and a look at a champion pie, you know where to go.

My Beeton address lending friend, Dever, had bad cell reception so I am not quite sure if there was an overall baked goods winner, so I am still waiting to hear. I will keep you posted as I am sure you are all waiting on pins and needles.

Once I have my summer house Picton better watch out! I am on a roll.

OH my gosh!! I'm so happy for you! This is amazing. You have always been the model of a blue ribbon cook and it's wonderful that the rest of the world is getting a taste (haha) of what you can do!!
The Beeton prize is especially awesome. That is a serious, serious contest... Yay LBM!
