Yes playing in the snow is definitely fun driving is not!

It was really bad. Lots of wrecks. Cars upside down. One was so far over an embankment that you could not see what it was only a cable from a tow truck going down to something that it was pulling up.

We are having a late dinner tonight. Kristen is fixing Hunters chicken. We had it a couple nights ago. She is practicing her timing tonight.

She competes on Saturday.

She made in past the preliminary round of cooking (two omelets and two vegetable salads).

She passed through the interview portion and is now in the final competition of C-CAP.

It stands for Careers through Culinary Arts Programs.

She has to fix the chicken (two of them) and crepes with filling and a chocolate sauce on top in two hours.

They offer quite a few scholarships and money toward college. There are 15 competing.

There is a Johnson and Wales scholarship, Le Cordon Bleu Scholarship, Culinary Institute of America, Culinary Institute of Virginia, The Williamsburg Foundation and others all offering scholarships some full some partial. As well as money awards. We are really excited for her.

Good Luck to Kristen! I get in a rut of cooking the same thing all of the time, you're lucky to get to try new recipes that she's making.

Thank you.

We are in a rut here too. I always tend to cook the same things. Unfortunately she really doesn't cook a whole lot. Occasionally she will but it isn't anything different most of the time.


What we had last night was what she has to do tomorrow for the competition. Everyone has to cook the same thing.

Brian is putting on the men's CHRP retreat at church again this weekend. I am alone with the boy and his friends.

Got sunburn at the track meet yesterday. I was exhausted.

Took Blake and his friend Kinley to the Egg and I for brunch. I had an eggwhite omlette that was very good.

I've never had an egg white omelet but it sounds delicious!

The competition went pretty good yesterday. We find out tomorrow morning how things really went!

But they did say yesterday that all of the kids are already winners. Everyone will receive something. They made it sound like all would receive some type of scholarship or money toward school. Kristen said in the past that they have given away knife sets to some that didn't receive anything money wise. But they definitely sounded like all would get some type of money this year.

One of the churches here had a sign out front a couple of weeks ago that said
"come on to church early this year and avoid the Easter rush"

We all had trouble getting out of bed this morning, it's 35 and I forgot to turn the heat on last night. Had no idea it was going to be cold again after sweating our butts off on Friday.

Our weather has really been up and down here too.

It snowed in part of our area on Sunday.

Kristen did very well at the awards banquet.

She received a partial scholarship to the Culinary Institute of Virginia and 1000 cash scholarship to use as needed for school. It can be used anywhere the other is just at CIV.

She was about the fifth highest winner I believe. One kid got a full scholarship to Johnson and Wales (worth 104,000). There was a partial to Johnson and Wales, a full to The Art Institute (any of their campuses), and an apprenticeship at the Williamsburg Foundation.

She and another person got partial to Culinary Institute of VA. The other one didn't get the cash also.

We are very happy for her. I think she is not sure what to think yet.

CIV had not been on her radar. She has two weeks to formally accept it.

She hasn't even applied to them so that will have to be done first.

wow, that's so good! She is going to have some big decisions to make now. I need to get Blake thinking about college more. He is actually on a college campus field trip todaY for a class he is taking. He really wants to go to A&M but it's really hard to get in
