Fair Time

If you have been following my blog for a while, you'll know that every August we attend the Wilberforce Agricultural Fair and I usually enter some things into the Homecraft Exhibits. This year was no different and I thought I would share my entries and let you know how I did. If you want to see how I did the last few years, click here, here and here.

Each year I have great intentions about all the things I will make/do for the next year and then they never actually happen. I should probably just stop making such lofty goals that I never attain. Oh well. I didn't do too shabby with my winnings this year and I'm proud of that.

My proudest accomplishment was the banana muffins. I made gluten/dairy/corn free muffins and entered them into the normal banana muffin category without telling anyone about their limitations. And they won! I am seriously proud of myself on that one.

Anyways, that sums up how I did at the fair this year. Until next year!
