You can call me... Giada De Laurentiis

One of our surrounding counties asked me to come be a judge in their county fair! How fun is that?? Yes, I know... I get paid to do this!! haha Love my job!
So anyway, Friday I spent all day judging the color, size, texture, and taste of all sorts of local grown items. 
Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture but the biggest cabbage I have ever seen was there!   

There were canned tomatoes, tomato juice, blackberries, peaches, pickles, and the list could go on.
Have any of you all ever canned?  

I was joking with Husby because when I got there on Friday I could hear everyone whisper "that's the judge." They were constantly asking me if I would like a bottle of water or if they could get me anything. haha How funny is that? Little do they know that I am an average person raising my own little garden and canning my own vegetables.  
I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!


  1. What an adventure and experience, so cool!

  2. How fun! It is interesting to be in a position of power like that right? Hope you found some really cool stuff!

  3. That's so awesome! I'm just getting into canning and I lvoe it. I made blueberry preserves a few weeks ago and they were great. I tried peach salsa over the weekend - it was good but my fingers are still burning from the jalepeno peppers! Next time I'm wearing gloves...lesson learned.

  4. This looks like so much fun! I wish there was something like this around here! Love your blog and I am your newest follower!


  5. That must have been such a cool experience!


I would LOVE to hear what you think!
