With joining 4-H this year we got to participate in the county Food Challenge. We had a few months of meetings to review food, nutrition, and cooking skills. As part of a food challenge the kids are given ingredients that and are supposed to come up with the meal with no help. They name their dish and present it before judges. The kids learned about cross contamination, proper cooking techniques, and how to speak in front of judges. Talmage and Grant were on a team together and their team name was "Master Chef's." Sandra and Mhari got to compete in a Clover challenge and had a great time too. Here are some fun photos from the event:

Lorna had a great time playing :)
Clark had some friends there to play with. This is his friend Anna Lee. He calls her "my Annie." They are so cute together! Oh and yes, he's a head taller than her, but he's only older than her by a month :)

The clovers presented for parent judges. I had two that talked with me. I also got to take pics of the girls doing their presenting :)

Their final product. The tortilla on top was to help hold the others in place until presenting. They did a great job ;)
Out of the 5 groups at the challenge our group finished 3rd. They got a ribbon and were very happy. There was some issues with their presenting to the judges, but did really well considering this was most of their first times doing something like this! Way to go Master Chef's!
