And the winner is…

100_1477 A few posts back I put up the recipes we entered in the Corn Roast Festival recipe contest.

The  Old-Fashioned Corn Roast Festival is the oldest and one of the largest community festivals in Loveland. Weekend activities included a Friday night street dance, roasted and boiled corn for sale, live music and Loveland's Got Talent Contest, beer garden, corn shucking contest, corn eating contest, corn recipe contest, parade and more.100_1471

I wanted to enter the corn eating contest but after a few practice tries at home, I realized I didn’t have a chance and stuck with the recipe contest.  And it is a good thing I did!

 

Corn Recipe

  • Corn Relish Winner - Marybeth Hammond, Feta Corn Salsa

  • Corn Chowder Winner - Kellee Zweifel, Santa Fe Corn Chowder (that’s me :)

We celebrated by refilling our fresh squeezed lemonades  and toasting Mom for giving us the recipes and sharing a funnel cake.  It turned out to be a great day.
