{Cooking For A Cure}

This past weekend, some members of the Blue Bell Relay For Life team & myself competed in the 1st Annual Cooking For A Cure BBQ Cook-Off.  None of us have ever participated in a cook-off so we had no clue what we were doing.  But, for being amateurs & getting everything together in less than a week - I think we did pretty darn good!!
Since we were representing Blue Bell, we wanted to do something Blue Bell related.  After much thought - we came up with TL (Tommy Lange) and The Supremes (since there used to be Blue Bell Supreme Ice Cream).  One thing led to another & before we knew it, there was a stage, costumes, wigs, & lip syncing.  Clearly we were aiming for Showmanship since we weren't so sure about our cooking skills!! =)
Friday night was the margarita & chef's choice competition.  Our margarita didn't do so great, but we got 2nd with our pork tenderloin stuffed with boudin & cream cheese and wrapped with bacon.  Believe me, it was as good as it sounds!  Saturday was bloody mary's, beans, chicken, ribs, & brisket.  We entered every category except brisket & surprisingly did very well!  We got 1st in bloody mary's, 2nd in beans, & 3rd in ribs.
Oh yes, and we won showmanship. =)
There weren't a lot of teams, but it was perfect for us!  Everyone was there to have fun & the money went to a great cause.  It was HOT & a long 2 days, but we had a great time & are already strategizing for next year!
